Connexin has announced that it will expand its IoT network nationwide, providing carrier-grade roaming long range wide area networks (LoRaWAN®) connectivity and infrastructure to customers all over the UK for the first time.

The new national low cost wide-area network rollout lead by Connexin is a strategic investment aimed at supporting the increasing demand for smart networks throughout the UK. The universal connectivity will lower the barriers to entry and better enable every type of organisation across the UK to adopt IoT solutions to provide further insights that will address future challenges, promote a better quality of life and create environmental improvements for all.

“With a low cost wide-area networking solution becoming available to all organisations across the UK, it opens up opportunities for those looking to deploy IoT solutions for a fraction of the cost of existing cellular infrastructure solutions,” said Furqan Alamgir, founder & CEO of Connexin. “Not only does this promote the development of new IoT-based technology but it allows existing solutions to be rolled-out nationwide to encourage further adoption and will allow more people to utilise and benefit from affordable, carrier-grade IoT connectivity.”

“Connexin is committed to changing the status quo in a previously stagnant smart city and IoT market. This announcement builds on our successes to date and will make available high quality LPWAN infrastructure to all,” continued Furqan. “Regionally, we have seen our network used by a variety of sectors and individuals from entrepreneurs and innovation centres to the utility, private and public sectors and have seen continued success with the likes of Amey in Sheffield and Yorkshire Water. These results have demonstrated the effectiveness of low powered networks across multiple use cases and we’re excited to be providing carrier-grade networks now across the entire UK.”
