From smart cities and defense to smart agriculture and building automation, low-power wide-area networks for the IoT (Internet of Things) are delivering connectivity and realtime data to business and mission-critical situations.

Stream Technologies,, a provider of IoT connectivity solutions, and Link Labs,, a provider of LPWANs (low-power wide-area networks), are supporting this by partnering to deliver commercial carrier-grade LoRa LPWANs for IoT applications. Both companies are members of the LoRa Alliance, an open and nonprofit association of members looking to enable IoT and M2M (machine-to-machine) applications by standardizing LPWANs and promoting the LoRa (LoRaWAN) specification.

Stream Technologies and Link Labs say IoT network customers will benefit from subscriber management, billing and data routing provided by Stream’s IoT-X Unified Access Connectivity Environment platform, and Link Labs’ LoRa LPWAN Symphony product range. Thanks to the partnership and integration with the Stream IoT-X LoRaWAN-enabled platform, Link Labs will allow network operators and enterprise clients to monitor, manage, and monetize their LoRa-connected devices, thereby providing key visibility and control beyond the gateway to the sensor.

Further, by leveraging Stream Technologies’ IoT-Xlerate ecosystem, enterprises and MNOs (mobile network operators) can benefit from streamlined deployment of products and solutions that have been pre-tested on the Stream network. For legacy networks, the companies say customers can now add LoRa LPWAN capability thanks to Link Labs Symphony Link or Symphony Net Gateway and the LL-RLP-20 and LL-RXR-27 end-point module products.
