WASHINGTON – CTIA Wireless Foundation today...
Harwell, Oxfordshire, UK, and Zürich, Switzerland, November 25, 2019 Lacuna Space, a provider for connectivity everywhere, and Miromico, a global leader for the design and production of wireless products for the Internet of Things (IoT), have signed a collaboration agreement for the development and easy provision of 'space ready’ and off-theshelf communications devices using ultra low-power and low-cost satellite links.
Following successful tests conducted this year the first commercial trials with Miromico devices and selected enterprise clients of the Swiss company in agriculture, environmental monitoring or asset tracking are starting in 2020. By using LoRa®1 technology, the de-facto standard for low power wireless IoT, the life-time of battery operated IoT devices can be increased by years, saving operation and maintenance cost. The mutual use of LoRa technology also allowed Miromico to easily and quickly adapt their hardware and connect directly to Lacuna Space's satellite.
