Evaluation Engineering was just one of more than a dozen publications which wrote about Laird's partnership with the LoRa alliance, which was announced during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. The LoRa Alliance is a consolidated effort from industry leaders to standardize and enable the Internet of Things (IoT). MWC is a global technology convention attended by more than 100,000 people representing most of the top technology companies in the world.
The article says "Laird brings to the partnership years of experience in embedded wireless technologies, ranging from low-energy Bluetooth modules to enterprise-grade Wi-Fi, which are the primary means of connectivity in the upcoming IoT." It also quotes Ståle Pettersen, chairmen of the LoRa Alliance, who says, “Laird has shown incredible commitment and expertise in their development of the first generation of LoRa modules. We view them as a key partner in the LoRaWAN ecosystem as they enable applications and offer the flexibility that is needed as the industry embraces and deploys LPWAN."
The article also mentions that Laird's Chief Strategy and Technology Officer, Dr. Nigel Major, was a speaker at the MWC event and talked specifically about the IoT.
