Kerlink & Stream Technologies Combine IoT Solutions for LoRaWAN

By Ken Briodagh August 30, 2017

Kerlink, a developer of network solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), and Stream Technologies, the company behind the IoT-X connectivity management platform, have announced the integration of their solutions to provide end-to-end LoRaWAN connectivity solutions for their expanding international customer bases.

The two companies, which established their partnership in August 2015, have integrated IoT-X and Kerlink’s complete portfolio of gateways, ranging from indoor Wirnet iFemtoCell, to carrier-grade outdoor Wirnet Stations, and geolocation-ready Wirnet iBTS Compact. These solutions are designed not only for private or public operators and smart-city network deployments, but also for small private networks, like buildings or industrial sites. Stream’s IoT-X connectivity management platform is fully integrated with the company’s LoRaWAN Network Server, and allows enterprises to thoroughly manage the IoT connectivity lifecycle, as well as subscriber provisioning, and offers rating and billing. It also enables users to benefit from a unique mix of IoT connectivity combining cellular, satellite and low-power wide-area (LPWA) LoRaWAN networks worldwide.

Kerlink, a fast-growing global provider of IoT infrastructure and applications for services, has already installed more than 70,000 IoT gateways, base stations and wireless connectivity products for IoT networks, and is currently supporting TaTa Communications to deploy the largest LoRaWAN network in the world. Kerlink’s application layers like LoRaWAN network-based geolocation solver and device management, and its expert services like reference design for connected devices, complete Stream’s IoT-X platform by providing value-added services that enable innovative use cases.

Stéphane Dejean, chief marketing officer, Kerlink, said the integrated package provides a turnkey solution that allows enterprises, public networks and existing network operators to quickly benefit from unlicensed LPWA solutions, as a complementary solution to broadband cellular networks.

“Stream Technologies has always been a market shaker in the IoT space,” Dejean said. “The IoT-X platform is a successful example of this pioneering spirit: it combines several types of connectivity to adapt to numerous customer use cases and delivers unprecedented experience in operating IoT connections. Accelerating our existing collaboration is a natural move for Kerlink to help customers in various verticals to quickly and efficiently bring their connected solution to market to generate new revenue opportunities and streamline their operations.

Kerlink is a founding board member of the LoRa Alliance, which Stream Technologies joined in early 2015.
