Kerlink and MyDevices form LoRaWan integration
June 15, 2017
IoT networking companies Kerlink and MyDevices are integrating their complementary technologies to accelerate design and launch of LoRaWan-based IoT smart applications and services.
The two companies are integrating application programming interfaces (APIs) included in French company Kerlink’s core network-management platform, Wanesy RAN (radio access network), and its lighter embedded version, Wanesy SPN (small private metwork), in MyDevices’ Cayenne IoT project builder, a drag-and-drop application enablement platform.
“With our IoT ready programme, developers can mix and match sensors, gateways and other devices from our extensive catalogue, then take advantage of the connectivity provided by Kerlink,” said Kevin Bromber, CEO of California-based MyDevices. “So this collaboration between MyDevices and Kerlink means IoT network end points can immediately begin collecting and transmitting data that can be directly exploited and displayed in the Cayenne user interface. Working with industry leaders such as Kerlink underscores the collaboration among partners in the LoRaWan ecosystem and furthers our mutual goal of accelerating the development and deployment of innovative IoT solutions.”
Because Kerlink stations are pre-registered and its core network products are already part of this integration, it should be immediately easier for customers to use the Cayenne platform to design services and applications.
This collaboration enables IoT users, service providers and application designers to create an account on the Cayenne platform, select the LoRaWan protocol, and choose and connect pre-approved end points or devices, such as sensors, actuators or trackers. The partnership also enables faster integration of LoRaWan connected devices in vertical markets. New sensors and other devices will be validated when integrated with Cayenne, and pre-configuration and pre-testing of Wirnet base stations will further accelerate the design of connected services and applications.
The agreement also increases flexibility in integrating existing or new low power wide area (LPWA) networks using Kerlink stations and Kerlink’s Wanesy RAN or SPN platforms.
“Integrating Kerlink products and services with MyDevices’ application-enablement platform provides comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for rapidly deploying large, smart-city or site-specific IoT networks with pre-tested devices, and running vertical value-added services,” said Yannick Delibie, CEO of Kerlink’s US subsidiary. “Our collaboration, which also highlights how Kerlink’s portfolio complements key IoT technologies like Cayenne, will dramatically reduce both the application-design effort and time to market for users of the LoRaWan protocol.”
Kerlink has performed more than 70,000 IoT installations for more than 260 clients in Europe and Asia. Based in Los Angeles, MyDevices develops technology that allows businesses to design, prototype and commercialise the IoT.
