Actility has worked with Get Wireless to develop a large-scale IoT communication network in Tunisia, based on LoRaWAN technology and powered by the ThingPark platform.
Get Wireless is expecting to see its customers deploying IoT solutions in smart grid, for metering and managing energy demand and distribution capacity, in waste management, where the location capabilities of networks powered by the ThingPark platform will enable management and optimisation of waste collection routes in real time, and in e-health.
“With the Tunisian IoT market now opened up for development by Mincom, the way is clear for our customers to begin to deploy services, which they want to do as swiftly and efficiently as possible to take advantage of this new market,” said Malek Ben Jalel, VP Presales of Get Wireless.
“We believe that Actility’s platform will allow us to quickly install and easily maintain a best in class product for our customers. Actility has the experience gained as a founding member of the LoRa Alliance and a veteran of many large-scale network rollouts worldwide, which gives us confidence in its ability to deliver the best solutions, and the value of its shared insight into successful business strategies for the IoT.”
Actility CEO Mike Mulica said that the region is “gearing up to provide smart services founded on the intelligence offered by the IoT powered by our ThingPark platform. The ability of the IoT to improve the quality of life for everyone is widely recognised throughout Africa, and the region is fast becoming one of the leading engines for IoT adoption and growth worldwide.”
