Smart technology enabler Laird announced that its RG1xx Long-Range Wireless Area Network (LoRaWAN) gateway will be pre-configured out of the box to function with Stream’s network server and IoT-X platform.
Laird’s Sentrius RG1xx gateway enables enterprise customers to deploy IoT networks in practically any geographic location, even where traditional communications infrastructure is unavailable.
Paired with other components of Laird’s growing Sentrius LPWAN ecosystem, such as the unique RM1xx Sentrius LoRaWAN / BLE modules and Stream Technologies’ LoRaWAN network server, the gateway enables cost-effective and end-to-to-end control of public and private LoRa networks.
Mass production and availability of the RG1xx family in Laird global distribution channels of Arrow, Avnet, Future, Digikey, Mouser, and Farnell is scheduled to begin in late June.
Through this partnership, Stream and Laird are demonstrating their commitment to simplifying the IoT for enterprises and helping global organizations deploy LoRaWAN networks faster and more efficiently.
Free trial access to Stream’s IoT-X platform for enterprise adopters of Laird’s gateway will help global organizations simplify their deployment of LoRaWAN networks, said Scott Lordo, Senior Vice President of Laird.
From the same IoT-X account, customers can also subscribe to Stream’s Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) services, which offer a suite of cellular or satellite connectivity tariffs for gateway backhaul connectivity.
IoT-X provides enterprises with the ability to manage the IoT connectivity lifecycle, data routing, subscribers and billing, and it is fully integrated with Stream’s LoRaWAN network server, which is fully compatible with any LoRaWAN compliant device.
IoT-X has been adopted by more than 500 enterprise customers, including Tier 1, 2 and 3 Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). The platform is agnostic to network type and includes a rich set of features that have been developed for more than a decade.
