Actility, the industry leader in Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN), and GET Wireless, North Africa’s leading network system integrator, today announced their partnership to develop a large scale IoT communication network in Tunisia, based on LoRaWAN™ technology and powered by the ThingPark platform. As a leader in integrating solutions and value added services for network operators throughout the Maghreb region, GET Wireless will be creating a platform for its customers to support applications ranging from smart grid to waste management and e-health.
“With the Tunisian IoT market now opened up for development by Mincom, the way is clear for our customers to begin to deploy services, which they want to do as swiftly and efficiently as possible to take advantage of this new market,” said Malek Ben Jalel, VP Presales of Get Wireless. “We believe that Actility’s platform will allow us to quickly install and easily maintain a best in class product for our customers. Actility has the experience gained as a founding member of the LoRa Alliance and a veteran of many large scale network rollouts worldwide, which gives us confidence in its ability to deliver the best solutions, and the value of its shared insight into successful business strategies for the IoT.”
“We’re very excited to be working with GET Wireless to begin the deployment of a large-scale LPWA network in Tunisia,” said Actility CEO Mike Mulica. “The entire continent is gearing up to provide smart services founded on the intelligence offered by the IoT powered by our ThingPark platform. The ability of the IoT to improve the quality of life for everyone is widely recognised throughout Africa, and the region is fast becoming one of the leading engines for IoT adoption and growth worldwide. We’re convinced that GET Wireless, with its experience in delivering customer solutions and portfolio of leading technology partners, is well placed to accelerate the deployment of IoT solutions in Tunisia and beyond.”
GET Wireless is expecting to see its customers deploying IoT solutions in smart grid, for metering and managing energy demand and distribution capacity, in waste management, where the location capabilities of networks powered by the ThingPark platform will enable management and optimization of waste collection routes in real time, and in e-health. As the first Actility Gold Partner in Africa, GET Wireless will focus on delivering what is best for our customers in our area.
