SPTel, an ST Engineering and SP Group joint venture company, has launched Singapore’s first sensor network powered by LoRaWAN. The network is a first-of-its-kind solution built for a national scale, starting with the heartlands, to increase the accessibility of IoT technologies and sensors for businesses, government projects, and Smart Nation initiatives.
SPTel’s Sensor Network enables authenticated sensor devices to connect to its secure IoT-as-a-service platform and backhaul connectivity wirelessly. The solution is fast, flexible, and cost-efficient by eliminating the need for businesses and IoT solution providers to build their networks. Data collected from LoRaWAN sensors can be analyzed to automate manual processes, enable predictive maintenance, increase productivity, and improve overall operational efficiency.
The LoRaWAN gateways run on solar energy and are highly sustainable for the long-term deployment of sensors. LoRaWAN is a long-range, bidirectional communication protocol with very low power consumption. It is an ideal solution for deploying sensors to enable targeted and effective pest control, asset tracking, street lighting, waste management, water level and flood management, and air quality control.
Currently, SPTel’s Sensor Network coverage extends to more than 70% of heartlands, 42% of hawker centres, and 52% of town councils and will continue to expand to meet the growing needs of partners and customers.
The SPTel Sensor Network is a great leap towards a comprehensive and reliable offering for IoT solution providers. This new solution places us in a strong position to capture growth opportunities from growing IoT demands and enables businesses and government agencies to focus on ramping up their digitalization efforts towards IoT adoption nationwide.Titus Yong, CEO, SPTel
