Orange Joins ULE Alliance and Decides on ULE Tech for Connected Home

By Ken Briodagh March 22, 2019

According to a recent announcement, Orange has joined the ULE Alliance and sets out to leverage ULE technology for its Connected Home products. This decision reportedly follows from the company’s decision to focus on the use of ULE technology to manage the connectivity of objects within its future “connected home” service in France. To enable its customers to manage connected objects in a secure way, Orange is set to launch a new “Connected Home” service in France this spring. By choosing the ULE technology for this service, close to three million homes which are already equipped with the latest Livebox will be able to use the service from launch without the need for any additional equipment.

This offer is designed to enable users to manage connected objects in their homes through a single mobile application or through Orange future voice assistant, Djingo. At launch, a range of ULE-compatible connected objects will be marketed under the Orange name. This includes a movement detector, a smart plug, a smart light bulb and a door or window-opening sensor. These objects were developed in partnership with Deutsche Telekom.

“We are convinced that the ULE protocol is the best available technology that will greatly facilitate the adoption of connected home usages among our customers. Orange is now joining Deutsche Telekom within the ULE Alliance and will work alongside the other members to build a fully-fledged industrial ecosystem. Over 5 million customers of Orange and Deutsche Telekom are already equipped with ULE-compatible routers and will be able to connect to a wider range of connected objects specially designed for use in the home,” said Sylvaine Aublanc, Smart Home Marketing Director, Orange.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
