Actility-featured Speeches
In-depth Live Demos

“This event really marked a turning point for LoRaWAN: it is now recognized as a dependable technology for large scale operations by major public and private sector organizations, like Total or US Federal, and 5G is no longer perceived as a threat, but rather a complementary technology. As a result, the ecosystem is thriving, and the number of sensors presented was overwhelming. Actility team felt very proud to be at the core of this ecosystem, both at the technology level, as the official network of the event, mediating all data flows to Microsoft and other Partners, mediating between private, public and satellite networks, and at the business level with thousands of devices transacted through ThingPark Market”
