With the development of the LoRa network, KPN now has a broad range of IoT networks, giving the IoT community a tremendous leading edge. Whereas 3G and 4G, for instance, are primarily used to transport larger amounts of data in real time, LoRa was developed to send small amounts of data over long distances. This makes it more cost-effective to connect every type of device to the Internet. This advantage is being furtherly developed through KPN Ventures and KPN New Business by either investing or collaborating, respectively, with young technology companies. We also combine our strengths with more than 200 partners to develop IoT solutions more quickly and participate actively in the IoT Academy. Together we invest in a better, more sustainable and safer society.
KPN promotes IoT partner ecosystem
The LoRa network is the 'steering wheel' of the Internet of Things. And we operate that wheel together with our partners, customers and end users. Together we create a unique ecosystem for the Internet of Things. We are also one of the initiators of the Internet of Things Academy, together with RDM Makerspace. At the Academy, organisations can learn how they can help the country progress with the Internet of Things.
