MultiTech and Partners Create Chinese Smart City LoRaWan Network

By

And the IoT connectivity hits just keep on coming. This time, from China, where Multi-Tech Systems, a global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, has completed a smart city implementation within the city of Weinan, located in the Shaanxi Province of China. The company used its IoT technology and paired it with sensors and a LoRaWAN network server from The Things Network to build what is now China’s first pilot city for full IoT connectivity implementation.

Within the city of Weinan, monitoring and analyzing critical information about its burgeoning agricultural community, including wind speed, temperature, barometric pressure and humidity, will help the city increase the success of its fragile agricultural system and hopefully improve the city’s economy.

LoRaWAN was chosen for its low-bit rate, and ability to take advantage of infrequent connection very cost efficiently. It is being deployed internationally in the subGHz ISM-Bands, and serves as a complement to cellular and satellite networks by connecting assets scattered over a wide area in often difficult to reach locations through a gateway situated where cellular or satellite coverage exists.

“LoRaWAN technology is a critical component in realizing resource management within cities,” said Stefan Lindvall, CEO, MultiTech. “Weinan’s implementation of MultiTech’s IoT solutions is further reinforcement of the value and worldwide potential of these cutting-edge technologies.”

The MultiTech MultiConnect Conduit gives the city leaders the data from Weinan’s remote sensors throughout the HighTech District, and all of the data is monitored with the The Things Network’s IoT DashBoard and TTN Network Server located in the city’s data center. 

“With a small group of people it is possible to provide an entire city with data connectivity for things,” said Wienke Giezeman, Initiator of The Things Network. “A remarkable community, Weinan should be proud to call itself one of the first functioning models of a smart city.”
