STMicroelectronics teams with Objenious to speed up IoT nodes development for LoRa networks

By Nick Flaherty at www.flaherty.co.uk

STMicroelectronics has teamed up with french LPWAN network provider Objenious to accelerate the connection of Internet-of-Things (IoT) nodes to LoRa networks. ST’s development kits are certified on the Objenious LoRa network to reduce R&D effort and time to market.
LoRa especially suits applications where nodes have limited power capability, can be difficult to access, and data transfers don’t require high bandwidth. Industry analysts estimate there will be tens of billions of connected devices deployed in the world by 2020.

Objenious launched and operates the first LoRa network in France, with more than 4,200 antennas deployed around the country. Using network expertise inherited from Bouygues Telecom, Objenious now proposes its LoRa network, platform, and services for LPWAN IoT to partners and customers locally and internationally thanks to roaming agreements.

ST helps developers by providing tools and software libraries that aid the STM32 MCU-based embedded design as part of its freely available STM32 Open Development Environment (ODE). By integrating Objenious’ network access software on top of the STM32 ODE, developing connected devices is even easier.

“The collaboration of STMicroelectronics and Objenious offers customers an opportunity to easily and quickly develop LPWAN-connected objects for the Objenious network, accelerating the business and the development of the IoT,” said Stéphane Allaire, CEO of Objenious.

“Offering STM32-based LoRa-enabled kits that are already certified on the Objenious network is a valuable asset for developers as it hurdles a major challenge in their efforts to create new LoRa devices,” said Thierry Tingaud, West Europe Sales, and President of STMicroelectronics France. “In addition to pre-integrating the software development kit, the Objenious-LoRa-enabled STM32-based solution is ready to use on a live network, greatly reducing R&D effort and time to market.”

The STM32 Nucleo LoRa kits are now certified and available to developers.
