Connexin to build UK long range IoT network

UK Internet of Things and smart city operator Connexin is rolling out a nationwide IoT network, providing carrier-grade long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) connectivity and infrastructure to firms.

The national “low cost” network will better enable every type of organisation to adopt IoT solutions, said Connexin.

“With a low cost wide area networking solution becoming available to all organisations across the UK, it opens up opportunities for those looking to deploy IoT solutions for a fraction of the cost of existing cellular infrastructure offerings,” said Furqan Alamgir, founder and chief executive of Connexin.

Connexin raised £80 million in funding this September and currently has regional LoRaWAN networks in place in East and South Yorkshire, following deployments in Hull with Hull City Council and Sheffield with Amey and Yorkshire Water, respectively. It also has a South Coast deployment with Icosa Water.

Donna Moore, chief executive of the LoRa Alliance, said: “This is a significant achievement for IoT in the UK that will open up tremendous business opportunities and deliver new service offerings that will improve the lives of customers.

“LoRaWAN has the most IoT networks deployed worldwide and is the global de facto LPWAN (low power WAN) standard.”

Connexin has delivered a purpose-built Smart City Operating System for Hull City Council and this year Amey implemented Connexin’s CityOS platform to improve highway maintenance services across Sheffield.
