Minol ZENNER Connect was the key sponsor of the most important LoRa Alliance event of 2019, LoRaWAN Live! and Open House Market Place, in Berlin last month. It was the most successful LoRaWAN Live! run by the LoRa Alliance since its inception with more than 550 visitors coming to see and learn why LoRaWAN has become the leading de facto standard for IoT technologies globally.

The LoRaWAN Live! event is the crowning highlight of the LoRa Alliance All Members Meeting. During these days, the technical, marketing and certification committees meet to debate, discuss and drive activities forward related to the development and promotion of LoRaWAN. Minol ZENNER Group was well represented in the marketing and technical committees by Dr. Hartmut Ritter, Marcus Kirchdoerfer (both from Minol ZENNER Connect), Dr. Niklas Klein (ZENNER IoT Solutions), Boris Stöckermann (Minol) and Val Jelinic (ZENNER Connect).

The technical committee focused on finalizing the much awaited 1.0.4 version of the LoRaWAN specification whilst the marketing committee continued with its development of marketing strategies targeting verticals in the IoT market. The hot topic for the technical committee was roaming with more and more operators establishing roaming agreements, whether point-to-point or through a roaming hub. Excellent progress was also made by marketing committee members enthusiastic participation in several break-out sessions focused on Smart Cities, Smart Utilities, Smart Agriculture, Smart Buildings and Smart Industry.
