Veea has joined the LoRa Alliance and will provide its edge computing expertise to the IoT partnership.

The non-profit LoRa Alliance has over 500 members and is committed to enabling the large-scale deployment of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) IoT through the development and promotion of the open LoRaWAN standard.

LoRaWAN is currently used in over 160 countries and by more than 140 major mobile operators around the world. The LoRaWAN certification programme guarantees that devices perform as specified.

Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance, said:

“I am pleased to welcome Veea to the LoRa Alliance.

The rapid acceleration of massive IoT deployments will be a major driver of edge computing and the opportunity to leverage LoRaWAN is significant.

I’m excited to follow Veea’s progress and look forward to its participation in and contributions to our ecosystem as it brings its LoRaWAN solutions to market.”

New York-based Veea has been working on edge solutions since it was founded in 2013. In 2018, the company acquired British mobile edge computing firm Virtuosys to further boost its IoT capabilities.

Virtuosys remains headquartered in Bath, UK but has since been renamed Veea Systems to reflect becoming a subsidiary.

Veea offers a LoRaWAN solution in which the radio, gateway-concentrator, and server processing are integrated into VeeaHub Smart Edge Nodes to support the independent collection and processing of data from the large and growing number of LoRaWAN-compliant devices.

Mark Tubinis. Chief Commercial Officer at Veea, comments:

“Veea is helping companies build the best IoT/IIoT solutions possible.

By bringing LoRaWAN networking capabilities to our Edge Platform, the advantages of our edge mesh technology can be applied where low-power, long-distance connectivity and integrated edge computing is required, such as smart farming, smart forestry, smart city, smart buildings, smart industrial, smart mining, smart construction, and much more.”

VeeaHubs can be meshed together through wired and/or wireless connections to increase channel capacity and connectivity. They also support both wired and 4G/LTE connectivity.

Veea’s hubs are part of the Veea Edge Platform, which also includes pre-packaged edge services, cloud-based edge network management, and a complete edge/IoT application developer kit.

Local autonomous processing of data provides a significant advantage in areas such as forests or rural areas with poor connectivity.
