The LoRaWAN World Expo Agenda Addresses Business Social Responsibility Needs

LoRaWAN | March 30, 2022

The LoRa Alliance, a global trade group that supports the open LoRaWAN standard for the internet of things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), announced an expanded program for the LoRaWAN World Expo, which will take place July 6-7, 2022, at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. The program’s new additions focus on why LoRaWAN is the premier low-power vast area network (LPWAN) for supporting enterprises’ environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards while also offering a high return on investment (ROI).

Global demand for LoRaWAN solutions has exploded–in part to address ESG requirements. Automated alerts triggered by analysis of the data LoRaWAN collects are creating significant opportunities for resource conservation, predictive maintenance, safety, and waste reduction to improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of our resources. In addition, LoRaWAN is the most widely deployed LPWAN solution because the market trusts the technology, which has global network availability, the ability to roam globally, and delivers considerable cost savings”

Donna Moore, CEO and chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance.

The acceleration of digital transformation, which went from a nice-to-have to a must among corporations and communities worldwide, pushed on by the lesson learned from COVID-19, has fueled LoRaWAN’s expansion. In short, digitalization has become crucial to ensuring safe settings for our residents’ and planet’s health and safety.

While LoRaWAN currently benefits people, the environment, and profits, the LoRa Alliance acknowledges its potential for development. It is pleased to have used this subject in several Expo presentations. According to the World Economic Forum’s Internet of Things Guidelines for Sustainability report, 84 percent of Internet of Things deployments presently target or have the capacity to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Several workshops will address societal issues such as healthcare, elder care, workplace safety, historical preservation, and more. Finally, speakers from think tanks and government agencies such as Arcep, ITU-T, and the European Union Commission for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education, and Youth will discuss crucial considerations for LoRaWAN and its governance.


There are three key elements in the world of Internet of Things cyber security. Standards are created in order to harmonize a common set of requirements. Regulations are created in order to incentivize manufacturers to adopt cybersecurity hygiene practices so as to protect societies and increase their cyber-resilience. Labels are created in order to provide visibility to consumers.

Quext IoT Expands IP Protection with Five New Patents

Quext | February 17, 2023

On February 16, 2023, Quext, one of the most innovative providers of smart technology solutions for the multifamily industry, announced recently that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded five new patents protecting its IoT solution. The new patents bolster the company's patent portfolio and recognize the innovation and originality of Quext IoT's smart home solution. Quext holds three patents pertaining to its Quext IoT solution. Quext and iApartments are currently involved in patent infringement litigation, with Quext alleging that the Tampa, Florida-based company infringes on the original patents. iApartments contests the validity of Quext's patents on the basis of alleged 'prior art.' Quext also filed an action with the International Trade Commission (ITC) against iApartments to prevent the importation of its white-labeled smart hubs. The USPTO considered all of iApartments' alleged prior art when granting Quext five new patents and determined that Quext's inventive concepts are novel. Consequently, the new patents strengthen the company's patent portfolio and reaffirm the innovative nature of Quext IoT's solution. Quext utilized one of the new patents recently in a new lawsuit filed in Florida's Middle District against iApartments. As operators themselves, the company designed its solution with operational efficiencies in mind, addressing pain points by remote lock credentialing, extending lock battery life, and reducing onsite hardware to lower maintenance calls, cost, and disruption. Quext IoT's patented solution has proven to be a thoughtful approach to smart apartment technology in multiple ways. Due to its distinctive network architecture, it is an optimal solution for both new construction and existing property retrofits of all classes. About Quext Quext is a smart technology and services enterprise that pioneers exciting innovations that make intelligent decision-making remarkably easy.
