Deutsche Telekom’s IoT Creators and the Helium Foundation launch new collaboration to accelerate IoT development and simplify smart-device management

New York, NY – WEBWIRE

The Helium Foundation and Deutsche Telekom (DT) today announced a shared initiative to bring Helium Network connectivity to the IoT Creators platform.

IoT Creators will offer an integrated Helium LNS (LoRaWAN Network Server) in its platform, enabling users to easily onboard and manage devices on the Helium Network. The integration increases optionality and efficiencies for IoT device users and solutions providers in both the Helium and IoT Creators communities.

The IoT Creators platform brings flexibility to sensor deployers by allowing smart devices to be wireless agnostic; devices can leverage both LoRaWAN and cellular networks depending on unique user needs. With the managed LNS, users will benefit from one interface to manage devices that can run across LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, and LTE-M.

The Helium Foundation is on a mission to help developers and users build new products and businesses on Helium. This new service will simplify device management for users leveraging multiple networks and introduce a new onramp to the Helium Network. Additionally, users can have their Helium LNS and connectivity services in a single contract.

“The Helium Network has become a key connectivity option for IoT developers and solution providers,” said Afzal Mangal Founder of IoT Creators at Deutsche Telekom. “Together with Helium, we can help foster and participate in the growing IoT ecosystem. Our collaboration with Helium is another step to proactively integrate various technologies so that customers can obtain an end-to-end service from a single source.”

The collaboration will benefit the entire IoT community across multiple protocols and is another meaningful step to reduce fragmentation hindering growth. LoRaWAN developers will have easier access to spillover cellular networks, while cellular IoT developers can benefit from the low cost and ubiquity of the Helium Network.

“Scaled IoT solutions have suffered from industry fragmentation,” said Scott Sigel, COO of the Helium Foundation. “The Helium Foundation is thrilled to work with Deutsche Telekom and bring the IoT Creators Platform to the expanding and diverse list of LNS providers on the Helium Network. We’re excited to bring Helium Network users more optionality in device deployment and bring Helium’s favorable economics and coverage to the IoT Creators Platform.”

The IoT market is primed for a breakout, given the scope of opportunity across multiple industries. By bringing together Helium and IoT Creators developer communities, the companies aim to encourage more innovation, shared resources, and new IoT applications.
