Tencent joins the LoRa Alliance, announces Shenzhen LoRaWAN network and comprehensive IoT solutions

August 16, 2018 / ANASIA D'MELLO

The LoRa Alliance, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN standard for Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide area networks (LPWANs), and Tencent Holdings Limited, a provider of internet value-added services in China, announced that Tencent has joined the LoRa Alliance at the highest level, further accelerating the adoption of LoRaWAN technology. This news coincides with this week’s IOTE 2018 event in Shenzhen, where many LoRa Alliance members will showcase their LoRaWAN products and services. “The number of relevant use cases for the IoT continues to grow with new applications in continuous development,” said Donna Moore, CEO and chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “Projections for China’s IoT market are significant, and LoRaWAN is very well positioned in the LPWAN space. Having Tencent join the LoRa Alliance is very valuable for our ecosystem and strengthens our presence in the Asia-Pacific region.”
