Göteborg – TalkPool AB and Tele2 AB, today announces that they will cooperate in enabling a Machine-to-Machine/Internet of Things (M2M/IoT) dedicated LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks) IoT network based on LoRaWAN technology in greater Gothenburg. This technology will be used for development and integration of IoT applications in several customer verticals.
This initiative will enable many more IoT applications in Gothenburg through an innovative radio technology that is already deployed and in operation in many countries in Europe and other parts of the world. TalkPool in partnership with Tele2 will act as integrator and consultant customers who have a need to get their equipment/products connected to the Tele2 IoT network. This includes connected things for smart city solutions, public transportation, utility, environmental and several tracking applications.
TalkPool will be responsible for the IoT network deployment and design of M2M/IoT solutions. This, combined with Tele2’s world class M2M/IoT leadership, will bring forward innovative and unmatched solutions to enable the companies in Gothenburg to take a forefront position in the digitalization.
Robert Spertina, Head of IoT comments: “We are very excited about our partnership with Tele2 and this will enable Gothenburg to further strengthen its position on the Nordic IoT arena. This will open new doors by leveraging our respective strengths and commonly address applications and use cases that until now have been economically unfeasible to connect. There is an unexplored potential for customer IoT use-cases that will be addressed when we combine our competences and capabilities and help bring innovative IoT solutions at very competitive price-points.”
