X-TELIA: Network Entirely Dedicated To IoT

Posted in Commentary with tags on June 15, 2017 by itnerd

X-TELIA is launching the first Quebec network entirely dedicated to connected things. Using Semtech Corporation’s LoRa devices and wireless RF technology (LoRa Technology) and the LoRaWAN open communication protocol offered by the LoRa Alliance™, the X-TELIA network is the latest project by Quebec entrepreneur Eric Bourbeau. Now at his fourth ICT company in Quebec, Bourbeau boasts 28 years of experience, including 15 as an executive at TELUS.

This network is specifically designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) and will provide the infrastructure necessary for the development of industries that require highly secure, low-power, long-range, and low-cost connectivity.

Responding to requests from businesses, industries and municipalities looking to increase their productivity and reduce their impact on the environment, the X-TELIA network offers a true return on investment (ROI) in a wide range of fields, such as fixed or mobile asset tracking, lighting control (streets and buildings), water management, health, and the environment.

The X-TELIA network currently covers much of Montreal, an area with a population of more than one million. The company plans to deploy its network throughout Quebec in the near future, before expanding into other provinces.
