Actility launches Ecosystem Partner Program

Actility, the global industry leader in Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks, and Europe’s leading energy aggregator, has officially launched the annual Actility Operator Forum. The first two-day event took place in Paris on the 29th and 30th of November 2018.

Over 50 global network operators and 100 clients and partners converged on Paris to join Actility in celebrating the growth and maturity of the LoRaWAN ecosystem and to share success stories, feedback, and best practice. The event was launched on Thursday morning by Actility CEO and Founder Olivier Hersent who delivered a keynote speech.

“Thanks to the Actility Operator Forum we realize that so much of what NNNCO is doing in Australia has global implications and that many of our breakthroughs and learnings are just as applicable in Asia, the US, Europe and beyond. We must all look beyond our own borders and that’s where roaming comes in. The focus now must be on supporting the large global device manufacturers in industries such as metering industrial controls to leverage global gateway growth as one global roaming network.”

Founder, CEO and Board Member, NNNCo
“It was a great opportunity for Orange to understand key requirements from the LoRaWAN ecosystem, especially large solution providers looking to roll out massively and to share with other LoRaWAN operators on how to best accommodate those requests.”

Fellow keynote presenters included industry experts from Schneider Electric, Itron, Semtech, HERE and Actility. The afternoon sessions were each chaired by a subject matter expert with presentations and input from three guest panelists from companies such as NNNCo, GEFCO, Nexans, ER-Telecom, Birdz.

Topics ranged from general discussions about the LoRaWAN ecosystem to more specific topics covering industrial, enterprise and private networks and then deeper into vertical use cases on those networks, including agriculture, logistics, smart cities, smart water. Given the maturity of LoRaWAN, the forum was also able to delve into go-to-market strategies, pricing models, deployment models, and roaming. The entire program can be viewed here:
