Concept: Chinese artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) devices manufacturer Xiamen Milesight IoT Company (Milesight) has partnered with French IoT connectivity solutions company Actility to facilitate the deployment of IoT use cases for indoor air quality (IAQ), smart buildings, smart offices, smart cities, smart agriculture, and other verticals. The duo includes business and technical collaboration and promotion integrated Milesight low-power wide-area network (LoRaWAN) Gateway and Actility’s ThingPark IoT platform.

Nature of Disruption: Milesight gateways leverages LoRaWAN technology, making them ideal for connecting and reliably transmitting messages between multiple sensors and the network server. The LoRa field sensors collect and backhaul over secured links into many of the major cloud IoT platforms connected to Actility’s ThingPark which include Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) IoT Core, and PTC ThingWorx. Actility offers a program for integrating gateways to ensure they operate with ThingPark. It necessitates a few button presses and exhibits a comprehensive validation process. This allows Milesight to integrate Actility’s long-range base station (LRR) into its LoRaWAN gateway and obtain detailed programming information from Actility. With the integration, Milesight LoRaWAN Gateways are can enable smooth connectivity to Actility’s ThingPark LoRaWAN network servers, manage all sensor data, monitor device status and modify relevant configurations. This represents the full administration of gateways and sensors. Both teams can complete the tasks with the help of effective communication, mutual support, and significant coding expertise in antenna, gateway, and IoT platform.

Outlook: Many customers often struggle to choose the correct technology to implement their IoT projects. Actility aims to offer the ideal solutions for managing their LoRaWAN networks while minimizing the effort and expenses associated with integration. IoT gateways leverage LoRaWAN to connect smart devices to the cloud for data processing and management. Actility is boosting clients’ capacity to offer constant network coverage all around the world along with Milesight. Both partners can enable quick and secure deployments of LoRaWAN solutions across multiple IoT segments through shared distributors and system integrators. The duo can help mutual clients grow and maintain their business continuity and benefit from deployed LoRaWAN solutions that provide streamlined operations, visualized insights, and enhanced productivity. The companies claim that joint development and distribution of these appliances and services can deliver enhanced connectivity for the IoT world.
