Nordic Automation Systems Launches LoRaWAN Public Access in Estonia

By Ken Briodagh February 27, 2017

According to a recent announcement, Nordic Automation Systems, distributor and developer of LoRaWAN solutions, intends to increase awareness for LoRa technology by launching a public LoRaWAN gateway in the south of Estonia with the University of Tartu.

“The Tartu University computer engineering program is designed to train the engineers and leading specialists in the Estonian information and communication sector,” said Alvo Aabloo, professor, Institute of Technology, Tartu. “LoRaWAN gateway by Nordic Automation Systems enables the effective development of practical learning, while students can use the new possibilities for their theses.”

“In addition to the development of teaching, the gateway also holds a practical output. Intelligent Materials and Systems Laboratory cooperates with many Estonian and European companies in the field of Internet of Things and portable electronics. LoRaWAN is one of the leading technologies in the world at the moment, which allows the development of low-energy IoT solutions,” he added.

The gateway, which is free to use for companies around the area, provides the university with the opportunity to develop new LoRaWAN applications, and for area developers to test prototypes and later bring them to market.

“The essential purpose of building the public LoRaWAN gateway is to give students and researchers more opportunities to experiment with LoRaWAN infrastructure,” said Viljo Veesaar, CEO, Nordic Automation Systems. “We aim to support the development of LoRa technology, so providing free LoRaWAN infrastructure allows a considerably faster way to get started with the low-power and low-energy network and encourages the invention of present and future innovative smart city solutions. Since the University of Tartu is the leading centre of research and training in Estonia, it is the ideal community to develop cutting-edge IoT solutions in Estonia.”

Thus far, LoRaWAN gateways manufactured by Nordic Automation Systems have been sold on all continents around the globe, and the company is also collaborating on international projects to develop long-range networks to facilitate Internet of Things applications in many different industries. The recently launched gateway is designed to support thousands of nodes, operates in the 868MHz frequency range and can provide connectivity up to 15 kilometers.
