Mainlink Preparing LoRaWAN® Expansion by Partnering up with TEKTELIC
Mainlink, a provider of services based on the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, has collaborated with Canadian company TEKTELIC, which will speed up the development of the LoRaWAN® wireless networks. The new partnership will provide Mainlink with base stations and other equipment necessary for the reliable and global performance of the network.
“TEKTELIC offers incredible technical opportunities, which will allow us to adapt to the quickly-growing IoT market and changing demands of clients. Also, we’ll comply with the requirements of quality and security for LoRaWAN® easier,” said Igor Poliscuk, Managing Director at Mainlink.
According to Mr. Poliscuk, the equipment provided by TEKTELIC will ensure global access to the network implemented by Mainlink. TEKTELIC was the clear choice among 50+ equipment providers, and the final decision was impacted by a similar vision toward IoT.
“Likewise to TEKTELIC, we offer sustainable, affordable, and open-sourced solutions of IoT. The Canadian solutions are the best in this segment, which also solves an important issue in this market, technological dependence. This is heavily avoided, so anyone who’s already understood the consequences of such dependence is looking for ways to break free,” claims Mr. Poliscuk.
The solutions of IoT, based on open sources, are particularly relevant to large companies. One of the examples includes water service providers, which are the potential clients of Mainlink.
After signing the contract with TEKTELIC, Mainlink entered the last stage of the preparation for the commercial start of LoRaWAN®. This network will be offered to clients once the negotiations with the supplier finish.
“The development of technologies and tools within IoT is currently one of the strategic directions of our investments. We have extensive experience in commercial accounting and households. Our plan is to utilize it in the limitless world of IoT,” says Andrius Janukonis, the chairman of the board of ICOR.
Mainlink, a member of the ICOR corporate group, develops its activities across several directions. The company implements LoRaWAN® and other similar wireless networks. Also, Mainlink is responsible for data collecting, processing, and presenting to the clients.
In order to deliver these services successfully, Mainlink will work with Mainhive, a unique platform for IoT data collection and analytics. The latest update of Mainhive will be introduced in Q2 2021.
LoRaWAN®, one of the most widespread Internet of Things solutions in the world, is relevant for companies that service many stationary devices adapted for this particular connection. This open network that operates on radio waves allows for remotely collecting and analyzing the data they transmit or send tasks to devices.
Among such devices are metering devices, rubbish bins, streetlamps, smart parking, heat distributors, smoke detectors, air quality measuring stations, and soil meters for agriculture.
The transmission range of devices in the LoRaWAN® network is large, with minimal, efficient energy use. This technology is cost-effective – the service life of the batteries in the network’s devices is more than 10 years.
TEKTELIC, a global leader in End-to-End IoT Products and Solutions, works to perfect the deployment of IoT Networks and Solutions for the best efficiency, high reliability, cost-effectiveness, and ease of operation. TEKTELIC IoT solutions are designed to work out of the box with little to no prior technical expertise from the end-user. This results in IoT acceleration and expediency. TEKTELIC solutions are not only unique because of how they are designed, but because of their ease of deployment, operation, and high reliability to help the consumer become a part of the IoT ecosystem.
