KORE, a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and worldwide IoT Connectivity-as-a-Service (IoT CaaS), announced it is expanding its international partnership with Everynet, a large international network operator for national LoRaWAN networks, into the United States. at a time when the need to capture and transport small packets of data is growing and use cases for massive IoT are accelerating.
According to Transforma Insights, by 2025, 358 million massive IoT devices will exist in the United States and more than 2 billion devices globally. This trend is one of several that is fueling the expanded relationship between the two companies.
“Our relationship with Everynet is battle-tested in Brazil. where we started our partnership some three years ago, and we are bringing those learnings into the U.S. as LoRa begins to mature in this country,” said KORE president and CEO Romil Bahl. “While most people think of KORE as the global, independent leader in cellular IoT CaaS, the reality is we also integrate satellite bearers and provide services related to unlicensed cellular technologies like LoRa.”
Leveraging the KORE and Everynet partnership, for example, water utilities can operate, maintain, and monetize a water distribution system efficiently. Water metering is a massive IoT use case that requires a variety of connectivity needs on the network.
KORE customers will have the opportunity to take advantage of the new LoRaWAN network Everynet is building in the United States. This coincides well with the impending 2G and 3G sunsets, as IoT customers create migration plans that leverage lower-complexity connectivity for simpler IoT use cases.
LoRaWAN provides customers with IoT connectivity options that ensure the transition from 2G and 3G is seamless. LoRaWAN also is gaining ground because of its network longevity, broad coverage characteristics, and the ability to lower the overall total cost of ownership of networks.
Everynet expects its LoRaWAN network to be operational in 36 cities and 100 logistics points by the end of November. The company’s systems already have been integrated into the KORE platforms for the U.S. market to enable customers to simplify their massive IoT deployments.
