Orange Business Services wants to accelerate IoT within companies with the new IoT Connect Anywhere. This new service consists of a wide area network with low energy consumption, offering connectivity based on the LoRa open standard technology.

LoRa open standard technology is an energy-efficient network technology that can transmit data wirelessly over a wide area. This makes the technology very suitable for remote areas, compact cities and industrial campuses. The technology uses 15 times less energy than a standard mobile network, is very flexible and easy to use. Users only need small gateways and antennas themselves.

The technology also uses encryption, so that the network is fully secured. IoT Connect Anywhere also offers secure gateway network transport and data delivery via HTTPS. This encrypts all communication between the browser and the website.

IoT Connect Anywhere

The connectivity via IoT Connect Anywhere is offered on location and is suitable for various applications, according to Orange Business Services in a press release. These include energy and fluid management, on-site tracking, geo-fencing, waste control, environmental measurements, lighting and parking monitoring in smart cities.

The service provides customers with scalable end-to-end connectivity between devices and data management platforms. According to Orange Business Services, the service is very affordable because it does not require any hardware investment. IoT Connect Anywhere uses the company’s Datavenue IoT and analytics platform, designed to collect, analyze, and transform raw data into actionable insights. In addition, the company offers consulting and integration expertise in order to further ensure the success of the project.

“To achieve its full potential, IoT requires flexible deployment and secure, seamless connectivity,” said Olivier Ondet, senior vice president, IoT and Analytics, Orange Business Services. “IoT Connect Anywhere makes this possible by eliminating the complexity of connecting IoT devices. It provides our users with end-to-end connectivity while protecting all their data.”

Deployment

The service of Orange Business Services is already used in the United States by an oil and gift multinational. The company is committed to a widespread campus for mobile asset tracking and management. The mobile assets are tracked with extensive underground tunnels via a LoRa-GPS tracker using a private LoRaWAN outside the tunnel system. This enables continuous tracking and geo-fence alerts.
