Actility, a LoRaWAN connectivity provider, and Hiber, a nano-satellite powered IoT network startup, have together announced that they are collaborating to enable LoRaWAN connectivity in the remote and developing parts of the globe that until now haven’t had access to a network. IoT (Internet of Things) service providers and enterprises operating in these areas reportedly will be able to leverage Hiber global nano-satellite connectivity via the Actility ThingPark Wireless and ThingPark Enterprise LoRaWAN management services.

The collaborating companies said that they will seek to enable IoT use cases in hard-to-reach places all over the world. The global logistics, remote agriculture, oil & gas, mining and scientific sectors are amongst many that will be able to deploy IoT technology in areas such as the Antarctic, deserts or in the middle of Pacific Ocean.

“Actility is excited to collaborate with Hiber and to offer its clients and partners the capability to deploy use cases that require global coverage,” said Olivier Hersent, CEO and co-founder of Actility. “In particular, oil & gas and continent-to-continent logistics organizations operating in remote industrial areas will greatly benefit from the collaboration.”

“This is a really exciting time for Hiber,” said Laurens Groenendijk, Managing Director Commercial and co-founder, Hiber. “After launching our first two nano-satellites into the earth’s orbit at the end of last year, we are now about to see our first customers go live with our first-of-its-kind network. It’s fantastic that we are able to work with Actility to provide critical LoRaWAN connectivity to our customers and we can’t wait to see the benefits that the organisations using our network will bring to the world!”
