Actility is an LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) provider for large-scale infrastructure and the developer of the ThingPark Wireless Platform, a core network management and supervision solution for LPWA connectivity. ThingPark is a carrier-grade IoT platform, designed to enable service providers to accelerate IoT and go-to-market strategies.

“We are delighted to add the MultiTech innovative LoRa access point to the fast-growing community of ThingPark Connected solutions,” said Christophe Francois, SVP marketing and Digital, Actility. “Its versatility in extending coverage in large scale networks and supporting enterprise requirements will be a great asset for ThingPark ecosystem customers to accelerate their IoT solution deployments around the world.”

The MultiConnect Conduit AP is available pre-configured to work with ThingPark right out-of-the-box, bringing flexibility to set up custom LoRaWAN coverage on any location. The gateway is available both on ETSI EU 868 MHz and sampling on US FCC 915 MHz spectrums. The integrated gateway will be commercially available as part of Actility’s end-to-end ThingPark Wireless network offering. Additionally, it will be available through ThingPark Market, Actility’s ecosystem solution hub. MultiTech and Actility will showcase this collaboration and its benefits at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona within Actility’s booth.
