Our Technology

machineQ delivers highly scalable and secure connectivity for your enterprise IoT business.

Why Our Network Platform?

 

The steep rise in forecasted connected devices means that for the companies, businesses, campuses, and municipalities considering wide area IoT deployments, the question is no longer if these implementations will be initiated, but how. Among a number of wide area IoT network solutions, LoRaWAN offers distinct advantages to consider when choosing a connectivity provider.

Simply having smart sensors deployed in the field and generating data is not enough to guarantee the success of an IoT solution. IoT solutions need the right network platform supporting them. As you begin to plan and build your IoT solution, you will need to ensure that your platform can deliver information securely, reliably, efficiently, and at a price that keeps the total cost of ownership down while also meeting the requirements of your solution and its users.

Introducing LPWAN

 

machineQ is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) driven by LoRa™ wireless technology. LoRaWAN is an open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT connectivity. Across the globe, more than 80 major carriers have deployed LoRaWAN networks and 500 key technology companies have deployed more than 40 million sensors worldwide.
