Nigeria-based company Layer3 and the global IoT company LORIOT have announced their partnership aimed at introducing new Internet of Things solutions in Nigeria, with market size estimated to reach $1 Billion by 2025.
Layer3, as network provider and system integrator, will focus especially in the smartcity and smart building sectors providing innovative solutions to a growing market. Layer3’s cloud infrastructure will allow private and public sector organizations to access and maintain control of the data generated by their IoT networks.
“This collaboration will bring the dream of smart offices and cities to life, by allowing devices, machines, and whole buildings to link into extensive data networks. Loriot, through its LoRaWAN technology, together with our cloud infrastructure and expertise will make this happen. We see enormous potential in Nigeria waiting for this change to happen.” Shatse Kakwagh, Executive Director at Layer3.
LORIOT provides the operation and management software for a LoRaWAN® (Long Range Wide Area Network) network, ensuring peak performance, flexibility, high-security standards and compliance with local regulations.
The infrastructure enables IoT sensors to collect and transmit data, through LoRaWAN® gateways, to the application servers enabling IoT solutions across a wide range of sectors.
“Over the last months, we have been observing a growing interest in LoRaWAN technology in Africa. For this reason, last year we upgraded our public infrastructure on the continent to offer better performance to our users. Starting a partnership with a local player, such as Layer3, allows us to support the next phase of this growth process and we expect to see new projects emerge and grow on a large scale in the coming months.” Added, Julian Studer, COO at LORIOT.
The ultimate aim of this partnership is to make IoT accessible to everyone, and create a truly interconnected future, powered by smart, cloud-enabled technologies.
