Thingstream, a Swiss-based low-power MQTT network provider, has launched MQTT Here, a service for private LoRaWAN networks which complements the 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 being used today, including those from IBM, Bosch, Software AG, TIBCO, Siemens and more. The tool suite is packaged into a simple subscription plan starting from as little as $1.00 per month for 500 MQTT messages consumed by a LoRaWAN Gateway, with 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. 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." said Philipp Bolliger, CEO, Thingstream, in a statement.
“Private LoRaWAN networks are a fast growing area for LoRaWAN technology, making up approximately 50% of our deployments today,” added Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance, in a 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.”
