Proximus signs Internet Of Things roaming agreement with Objenious, affiliate of Bouygues Telecom, on LoRaWan network

Proximus and Objenious enter into a roaming agreement for the establishment of International Roaming services between their Long Range Wide Area Network whereby a roaming customer provided with services in Belgium and Luxembourg can also gain access to the Long Range Wide Area Network services Operator in France and vice versa using OTAA (over the air activation) devices.

This roaming agreement between both companies is aiming to shortly start a Proof Of Concept leading to longer term LoRaWAN network agreement between both companies.

Thanks to its national coverage and high network availability, Proximus and Objenious allow business companies to extend their services beyond their national territory where they have connectivity requirements from their business clients, for example in the transportation & logistics and utilities sectors.

Alex Lorette Director Telecom Solutions, Enterprise Business Unit, Proximus: “We feel roaming will enable many use cases and it is something our customers have asked for on multiple occasions. It would allow companies to offer a higher quality and comply with strict regulations. For example by simply tracking temperature when transporting food from France to Belgium.”

Stéphane Allaire, CEO of Objenious, stated : “To keep on going on our strategy to extend our coverage, we are glad to announce a new roaming agreement with Proximus. As key member of the LoRa Alliance and leader of the LoRaWAN networks in Belgium, it seemed obvious for Objenious to have this partnership with Proximus to offer our customers the largest coverage.”

Adding roaming connectivity between both companies shows Proximus and Objenious continue to deliver on their strategy in managed IoT services. The IoT is transforming businesses in every sector and supports more customers in taking advantage of this technology when they are in a roaming situation.

This agreement marks a first step for Proximus and Objenious, enabling mobile operators to utilise Long Range Low Power services responding to customer’s expectations.
