LoRa Alliance Expands to 27 Countries to Amplify Global Roaming Capabilities

The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN® standard for IoT services, announced that 27 countries across the world will now have full access to updated LoRaWAN roaming capabilities through multiple network operators.

Along with this announcement, the LoRa Alliance stated that the Connect EU initiative has been launched, in hopes of accelerating roaming across Europe and other participating regions.The alliance’s goal is to continuously improve roaming networks and hubs, and encourage collaboration among members.

“The LoRa Alliance continues to drive a strategy of making LoRaWAN widely accessible and easy to use,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “As of the end of 2020, we have public and private LoRaWAN networks active in more than 160 countries around the world. We also know that true global coverage is most quickly accomplished by interconnecting networks and allowing devices to seamlessly move between them—especially for logistics and tracking applications.”

The recently updated TS002-1.1.0 LoRaWAN Backend includes a number of new features, such as geolocation features for roaming devices, and public-to-private and private-to-private network peering support. Also included is a unique feature that allows a single device to be served by several networks’ gateways at once with unified coverage.
