AtomBeam Technologies Joins LoRa Alliance

AtomBeam Technologies, a data-compaction software company, has announced that it has joined the LoRa Alliance as an adopter member. This membership will allow AtomBeam to influence and contribute to the adoption and development of the LoRaWAN protocol throughout the world. The LoRa Alliance is an open, nonprofit association that has grown to more than 500 members since its inception in March 2015.

"AtomBeam looks forward to aiding LoRa Alliance members in cutting network expenses and more securely and efficiently transmitting IoT data," said Dave Smith, AtomBeam's VP of IoT, in a prepared statement. "Our technology is the latest innovation for shrinking, securing and speeding data transmission and we look forward to working on the further development of the LoRaWAN specification and product certifications."

AtomBeam's AI software is designed to stream and compact IoT data by an average of 70 percent, the company reports, reducing transmission costs and speeding up data transfer. The firm utilizes the LoRaWAN standard as a platform for improving data transmission, security and battery life. AtomBeam's code can be embedded in virtually any network, firmware, CPU, cloud storage system or connected IoT device, the firm notes, including power-constrained low-power, wide-area networks (LPWANs).

"We are pleased to welcome AtomBeam Technologies to the LoRa Alliance," said Donna Moore, the Alliance's chairwoman and CEO, in the prepared statement. "AtomBeam brings its expertise in optimizing LPWANs to our vast member ecosystem and we look forward to its contributions in driving deployments and adoption of the LoRaWAN protocol."
