Telekom Srbija has become the first operator in the region and the fiftieth worldwide to present the latest state-of-the-art infrastructure intended for solutions applicable to the Internet of Things (IoT) – the LoRa network.
The LoRa network enables connections and mutual communication between a large number of the most varied types of devices and sensors, representing a foundation for the development of the IoT ecosystem, i.e. the digitisation and digitalisation of society as a whole.
The presentation was attended by Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabić and Telekom Srbija CEO Predrag Ćulibrk, as well as Serbian Chamber of Commerce & Industry President Marko Čadež and founder of company Bitgear, Dejan Dramićanin.
The simple remote-controlled management of home appliances, remote reading of the parameters of the human body or the management of information related to available parking spaces are no longer elements of some distant future, rather they are part of the reality that surrounds us.
The LoRa network represents one of the pillars of the digitalisation process in all spheres of life. This is a type of technology that utilises a sensor ecosystem to secure all the necessary prerequisites for the creation of the widest possible variety of business solutions.
Telekom Srbija and Bitgear have created sensor equipment that is unique in the world, the applying of which enables the resolving of a problem that has for decades hampered Telekom Srbija, with the ultimate establishing of secure control over this operator’s underground cable infrastructure, which is one of the key resources enabling unhindered operations.
The LoRa network currently encompasses Belgrade and its metropolitan area, while it will soon cover the entire territory of Serbia.
