Blink Services thereby strengthens its operations to meet future requirements. To be able to ensure that information does not leave Sweden, the system is installed on Swedish data center with physical location within the country's borders. Blink Services welcomes LORIOT as the new provider of the server solution.
“We strongly believe in the disruptive potential of technology and, particularly, IoT in transforming our society for the better.

Partnering with a very strong and important company such as Blink Services is one step forward to fulfil our mission and it's definitely something worth celebrating”, Julian Studer, COO of LORIOT.

Blink Services, part of Netmore Group AB from 2019-01-31, started in autumn 2016 with the development of smart road signs but lacked a suitable network to connect them to. With the support of LoRa Alliance™, we rapidly changed direction and 2017 we rolled out LoRaWAN in Sweden.
Meanwhile, the workforce grew from two to nine people. The company has a strong team of PhDs, technicians and innovators with many years of experience from Sony Ericsson, Saab, Telia Company and Quamcom Research & Technology AB.
Together with our partners, we are driving the development of digital solutions with the vision of creating safe, efficient and sustainable societies.
