Thingstream Launches Connectivity Solution for LoRaWAN Networks

Thingstream, a low-power MQTT network provider in the field of unified sensor data connectivity and aggregation, has announced the launch of MQTT Here, a service for private LoRaWAN networks intended to complement its existing global cellular low-power connectivity offering, MQTT Anywhere.

MQTT Here combines hosted, scalable LoRaWAN network server components with Thingstream's industrial MQTT Broker and Data Flow Manager, which offers data pre-processing and integration into mainstream IoT and enterprise systems, including those from IBM, Bosch, Software AG, TIBCO, Siemens and other providers. These tools are packaged into a subscription plan starting at $1 per month for 500 MQTT messages consumed by a LoRaWAN gateway, with a no-term contract.

"We are delighted to join the LoRa Alliance and look forward to becoming an active member of a growing and engaged community," said Philipp Bolliger, Thingstream's CEO, in a prepared statement. "By combining our MQTT HERE to LoRaWAN implementation, we are enabling enterprises to access a single platform to manage connected devices' global data flow from a single platform, regardless of the underlying radio network."

"Private LoRaWAN networks are a fast-growing area for LoRaWAN technology, making up approximately 50 percent of our deployments today," said Donna Moore, the LoRa Alliance's CEO and chairwoman, in the prepared statement. "It is great to see new members coming into the LoRa Alliance with innovative solutions. We look forward to Thingstream's contributions to the LoRa Alliance as a new member."
