Actility’s expertise in LPWAN technology will ensure that the network is highly reliable, secure, and efficient, making it suitable for a variety of use cases.

The nationwide LoRaWAN® network will have significant implications for various sectors in Vietnam. For instance, it will enable the efficient management of industrial zones, where energy consumption data can be collected and analyzed to optimize power distribution and reduce waste. The network will also support smart city initiatives, such as intelligent transportation systems and public safety monitoring. Additionally, the network will facilitate the development of new IoT applications, such as environmental monitoring and smart agriculture, which can improve the quality of life for citizens and enhance the country’s economic competitiveness.
