Kaertech, a provider of made-to-order connected objects, has licensed Kerlink’s Low Power IoT (LPIoT) Reference Design solution to design and manufacture LoRa devices.
The company, which has offices in Paris, Hong Kong, and the Philippines, helps startups, SMEs and large corporations design innovative connected devices and services.
Matthieu Delporte, Kaertech general manager and CFO, said in a media statement that the Kerlink solution accelerates time to market from concept to finished product by eliminating months of product-development time and can cut overall R&D costs by up to 30 percent.
“It is a logical and strategic addition to Kaertech’s suite of services for companies around the world that are deploying LoRaWAN networks for rapid, reliable and energy-efficient IoT connectivity,” he said.
Kaertech CEO Michael Bouffaut added that the Kerlink’s reference design system supports the company’s objective to offer R&D engineering and manufacturing services for telecommunication products, multi-media tools, electronic modules, consumer electronic goods, household appliances, and industrial products.
France-based Kerlink, a global provider of turnkey solutions for deploying LoRaWAN networks, is a co-founder and board member of the LoRa Alliance, an ecosystem of more than 500 diverse companies that support LoRaWAN networks.
According to its website, the company has installed more than 100,000 gateways, base stations, and other wireless connectivity products for M2M and IoT networks for more than 330 clients in Europe, Asia and North and South America.
In October 2018, France-based Kerlink launched a Japanese subsidiary to serve the growing interest in the internet of things (IoT) and expand further into Asia.
