Actility and machinestalk have partnered for the deployment of a large-scale LoRaWAN network in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
The partnership will combine Actility’s Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) expertise with machinestalk’s market-leading IoT platform and solutions, and enable efficient and energy-saving IoT solutions and geolocation applications in the fields of smart cities and Industries, oil and gas, supply chain and logistics.
Managing Director Eng. Nawaaf Alshalani said, “We are collaborating with Actility to implement LoRaWAN network and LPWAN technologies, which will enable the growth of the IoT market in the Kingdom in line with the 2030 Vision. Our studies and research indicate that 11% of IoT connections will use LPWAN technologies that serve applications and solutions that require low-cost, multi-year battery operation, long-range connectivity, and geolocation. This collaboration will help us to provide better IoT services and solutions for various private, government, and semi-government sectors.”
Actility CEO Mike Mulica added: “As a provider of IoT solutions for over a decade, machinestalk really understands the needs of the key industrial sectors in the Kingdom. Not only oil and gas, which are clearly pivotal, but also other applications in the new domains being grown in response to the very forward-looking Saudi Vision 2030. We believe that this LPWAN communications network will be a powerful platform to accelerate the implementation of that vision.”
machinestalk is planning to use the LoRaWAN infrastructure to facilitate the implementation of IoT solutions in industry sectors including oil and gas, smart city solutions, M2M, and industrial applications. For the oil and gas industry, the network will support services including smart level monitoring and smart metering, improving the end to end supply chain. From the smart city perspective, machinestalk will deploy services including smart lighting solution, environmental monitoring, smart parking systems and waste management solutions resulting in more green, efficient and connected cities in Saudi Arabia and the MENA region.
