Actility, Milesight partner to facilitate LoRaWAN deployments

Actility noted that Milesight LoRaWAN gateways are ideal for interconnecting and relaying messages between various sensors and the network server efficiently and reliably


Chinese IoT solutions provider Milesight has signed a strategic partnership with French firm Actility, a provider of IoT connectivity solutions, with the aim of facilitating the deployment of IoT use cases for smart buildings. The partners said that some potential uses cases to be targeted include indoor air quality (IAQ), smart offices, smart cities and smart agriculture, among others. The pair also agreed on technical and business cooperation as well as mutual promotion of the integrated Milesight LoRaWAN gateway and Actility’s ThingPark IoT platform.

Now part of Actility’s portfolio, Milesight LoRaWAN gateways now allow seamless connection to Actility’s ThingPark LoRaWAN network servers. Data collected from LoRa field sensors is backhauled over secured links into many of the major cloud IoT platforms connected to Actility’s ThingPark, such as Microsoft Azure, AWS IoT Core, PTC ThingWorx and others, according to Actility.

Milesight is based in Fujian, China, with regional offices in the U.S., Korea and Taiwan.

Actility also noted that Milesight LoRaWAN gateways are ideal for interconnecting and relaying messages between various sensors and the network server efficiently and reliably. It is specifically designed for wide-area IoT applications, and the application scenarios include smart building, smart office, smart city and smart agriculture.

Milesight and Actility teams have been working together to modify antenna’s specifications in order to meet different market needs. As a result of this joint work, Milesight can acquire complete programming info from Actility and integrate Actility’s LRR into their LoRaWAN gateway.

Following the agreement, Milesight LoRaWAN gateways can connect to Actility ThingPark, manage all sensor data, monitor device status and modify relevant configurations, which marks the complete management of gateways and sensors.

“Milesight has committed to providing the innovative device-to-cloud LoRaWAN solutions, while Actility has a proven reputation in offering highly reliable and stable IoT deployments in the LoRaWAN ecosystem… Both of us share the same goal to build a smarter world over LoRaWAN technology. With the promising partnership between Milesight IoT and Actility, I am sure that our mutual customers will expand and maintain their business continuity as well as benefit from the deployed LoRaWAN solutions that offer streamlined operations, visualized insights and improved productivity,” said Leon Jiang, VP of Milesight.

“We’re thrilled about partnering with Milesight IoT,” said Olivier Hersent, CEO at Actility. “Their expertise in IIoT innovation, coupled with Actility’s advanced connectivity solutions portfolio will allow quicker and more secure deployments of LoRaWAN solutions across many IoT segments on all continents as well through common distributors and system integrators. Our joint development and distribution of these appliances and services will help us deliver compelling connectivity for the IoT world.”
