Layer3, LORIOT Partner on IoT Solutions for Nigeria

Layer3 and LORIOT have announced a partnership aimed at introducing new Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in Nigeria, with a market size estimated to reach $1 billion by 2025. Layer3, a network provider and system integrator, will focus on the smart-city and smart-building sectors, while Layer3's cloud infrastructure will allow private- and public-sector organizations to access and maintain control of the data generated by their IoT networks.

"This collaboration will bring the dream of smart offices and cities to life," said Shatse Kakwagh, Layer3's executive director, in a prepared statement, "by allowing devices, machines and whole buildings to link into extensive data networks. Loriot, through its LoRaWAN technology, together with our cloud infrastructure and expertise will make this happen. We see enormous potential in Nigeria waiting for this change to happen."

LORIOT supplies operation and management software for a LoRaWAN network, in order to provide performance, flexibility, security and compliance with local regulations. The infrastructure enables IoT sensors to collect data and transmit it via LoRaWAN gateways to the application servers.

"Over the last months, we have been observing a growing interest in LoRaWAN technology in Africa," added Julian Studer, LORIOT's COO, in the prepared statement. "For this reason, last year we upgraded our public infrastructure on the continent to offer better performance to our users. Starting a partnership with a local player, such as Layer3, allows us to support the next phase of this growth process and we expect to see new projects emerge and grow on a large scale in the coming months."
