There are a very limited number of industrial grade LoRaWAN® devices that are certified to the standard required to be placed in many industrial settings. The partnership provides a potent combination of tools to industrial customers who require hazardous area certifications and/or testing to UL standards.
Houston, 30th September 2021 - Texas – based Volley Boast, LLC and LORIOT AG announce their partnership in the effort to grow adoption of LoRaWAN® in the industrial space, particular the hydrocarbon sector and other process industries (chemical, food, agricultural, and pharmaceutical).
Volley Boast, LLC is the manufacturer and distributor of the VoBo HL-1 and VoBo GP-1 fully autonomous LoRaWAN® Endpoints. Carrying UL-62368 and CSA C22.2 listings and certified to ANSI/ISA 12.12.01 and CAN/CSA C22.2, the VoBo is well suited for the North American industrial market. The VoBo is truly the Swiss army knife of LoRaWAN® endpoints, enabling proven wired process instrumentation to transmit data wirelessly. In most cases, the VoBo can also provide the power supply for the transmitter.
“The VoBo together with LORIOT’s network server provides a very attractive combination for the introduction of LoRa technology to the industrial sector, as well as the ability to scale the deployment to take full benefit of the combination. Volley Boast’s VoBo integrates easily with the LORIOT platform, and this will pay dividends for our customers down the road.”
Peter Weidler, President & CEO at Volley Boast.
“LORIOT was keen to partner with Volley Boast as they offer a unique product that can help existing infrastructures capitalize on legacy sensors that are already installed and convert them into sensors working within the LoRaWAN ecosystem. This will make it easier for companies to utilize their existing setup to begin remote monitoring of their assets and have greater insight into their care and maintenance. LORIOT has always been proud to be at the forefront of LoRa innovations and helping companies have the needed resources to pioneer new technologies.”
Julian Studer, Founder & CEO at LORIOT.
