Kerlink Announces LoRaWAN Integration in Google Cloud IoT With Microshare

Kerlink, a provider of solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), in partnership with IoT data-management firm Microshare, has integrated carrier-grade LoRaWAN solutions into Google Cloud's IoT architecture.

The Microshare and Kerlink approach is intended to ensure the security of data flowing from LoRaWAN devices to extended IoT networks, the companies report. As device-generated data is securely transported, annotated and unpacked in LoRaWAN networks to create context and actionable business insights, ownership rights and origins will be stamped and respected. Thus, snetwork owners will be compliant with regulatory requirements, such as GDPR, the EU regulation that took effect on May 25, 2018. By leveraging Microshare's governance, audit and micro-contracting features, the companies explain, users can securely share data among ecosystem partners.

The announcement was made at the start of the 10th Open House of the LoRa Alliance, a global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN standard for IoT low-power wide-area networks. Earlier this year, Kerlink and Microshare, both active alliance members, formed a partnership built around LoRaWAN IoT development, which is now being extended to Google Cloud.

"By integrating Microshare and Kerlink's technologies in Google Cloud, we can create carrier-grade solutions at cloud-scale in hours rather than months," said Yannick Delibie, Kerlink's CTIO and CEO, in a prepared statement. "Reducing the burden of security, scale and reliability allows both solution providers and customers to focus on rapidly delivering valuable business insights with their LoRaWAN networks."

"We've seen rapid adoption of LoRaWAN as a leading enabler for easily deploying cost-effective IoT sensors globally, and we view Google's decision to join the alliance as a validation of everything Microshare has been pursuing for the past three years," said Ron Rock, Microshare's CEO, in the prepared statement. "A lot has been achieved in making reliable, long-battery-life devices and carrier-grade networks, but this means nothing if the data generated and transported is not easily accessible to business users and securely shared between multiple organizations."
