SWAN Forum and LoRa Alliance partnership to accelerate IoT adoption in the water sector

The Smart Water Networks Forum has formed a new strategic liaison with the LoRa Alliance to advance “smart,” data-driven solutions in water networks, and drive adoption of the LoRaWAN open standard in the water metering sector. 

This agreement will build off of each organisation’s vibrant membership pool and promote Internet of Things (IoT) deployments for smart network coverage.

As LoRaWAN technology further expands its global footprint, utilities broadly—and water metering in particular—remain the leading application for low power wide area networking (LPWAN) technologies and will occupy the largest market segment over the next five years, a market study by IoT Analytics shows. Representing 30% of the installed base by 2025, utilities counts by far the most use cases and will continue to do so.

Donna Moore, the CEo of LoRa Alliance, said: “Given the significant market opportunity, our two organizations will work together to drive a number of marketing initiatives with members.

“This work will strengthen the ecosystem and bring valuable solutions to utility companies and public utilities’ end customers across the globe.”
