Smart city specialist heads to the Netherlands to sponsor World’s Largest LoRaWAN® Conference
Lucy Zodion Ltd, smart city specialist and LoRa Alliance® member, is heading to Amsterdam for the annual Things Conference, hosted by The Things Network. The solutions provider will sponsor the event as a Smart City partner at the Kromhouthal, Amsterdam, Netherlands on 30th – 31st January 2020.
The Conference welcomes over 2000 leaders in IoT at the LoRaWAN® event of the year. It provides those in the IoT and connected things world, a chance to meet and network with industry leaders, learn about the latest and greatest in LoRaWAN® and boost IoT skillsets.
LoRa Alliance® and Lucy Zodion
Lucy Zodion will sponsor the event as a Smart City partner to support the LoRaWAN® specification protocol. As a member of the LoRa Alliance®, Lucy Zodion is an advocate of the association and its drive for open and interoperable solutions that use secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWAN connectivity.
The Conference will give Lucy Zodion the opportunity to not only network with fellow tech innovators, but build the foundations for new and ongoing collaborative partnerships that help to reinforce the benefits of the protocol, as well as its smart city solution Ki.
Ki. has been developed with interoperability in mind. It can seamlessly integrate with existing infrastructure yet is futureproof to work alongside the technologies of tomorrow. Reducing the risks proprietary solutions present, the interoperability of Ki. opens up a number of innovation and collaboration opportunities, which are further optimised by LoRaWAN®.
IoT and Lucy Zodion
Lucy Zodion’s Ki. City platform is a next generation interface that bi-directionally communicates (through LoRaWAN Class C) with IoT devices, such as Ki. Nodes. The platform translates data, transmitted from each connected point throughout the smart city and aggregates it, to provide a single lens view of the city.
The actionable insights Ki. is able to present provide city leaders with an understanding of contextual, real-world challenges that impact their community. These insights aid city leaders in making better informed decisions on the urban innovations they must make, to improve and overcome such challenges.
Optimised By Openness
At the Conference, Lucy Zodion will further explore the theme of ‘Optimised By Openness’ not only via its own Ki. ecosystem, but the benefits of openness throughout the entire smart city. By working with vendors that provide open solutions, it unlocks tie-in and opens up opportunities for a multi-vendor smart city. This means that cities can be optimised based on the unique needs of their citizens, to address the challenges on the street.
Openness is a key component for the development of interoperable, innovative and futureproof smart cities. Taking an open approach to the way urban spaces evolve, helps city leaders unlock in-depth smart city insights gathered from various connected points. Lucy Zodion will host a booth at the exhibition to drive its theme further.
The Things Conference will provide the ideal platform for Lucy Zodion to reinforce the interoperability of Ki. and understand further benefits and solutions the protocol brings.
The Things Network comments:
“At The Things Conference, we bring together 2000 IoT professionals and share knowledge to simplify the global implementation of the LoRaWAN standard. Together with Lucy Zodion, we support companies and governments to adopt secure IoT solutions for smarter cities.”
John Fox, Managing Director of Lucy Zodion, adds:
“Our involvement at The Things Conference 2020 will provide us with a great platform to join and contribute to the IoT conversation, at an international level. With over a decade of experience in delivering intelligent street lighting and smart city solutions, our knowledge and expertise gives us a deep understanding of the challenges many cities face, from both a citizen and civic level. LoRa and IoT technology are key elements of smart city development. They help us to innovate in order to overcome such challenges and, by using them within our Ki. smart city solution, we’re able to unlock the potential of tomorrow’s cities with valuable insights.”
The Lucy Zodion team is confident that The Things Conference will help to educate and inform core industry players about its capabilities and solutions that are optimised by openness.
