Oxford-based Lacuna Space, which develops direct-to-satellite IoT solutions based on the open and interoperable LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Networks) standard, is to collaborate with USA-based Omnispace, on the distribution of a ground-breaking internet of things (IoT) service.

The collaboration will enable the commercial launch of a first of its kind, global, open standards-based IoT network. The service will employ the LoRaWAN protocol to enable direct-to-satellite communications for a broad range of IoT devices.

Leveraging Omnispace’s licensed, 2GHz S-band spectrum rights, and integrating Omnispace and Lacuna infrastructure, the service will allow devices to connect seamlessly between existing terrestrial networks and previously un-connected regions around the globe.

Ram Viswanathan, president and CEO for Omnispace, said: “Omnispace is reimagining mobile communications solutions for users by employing standards-based solutions to deliver global, real-time connectivity. We’re pleased to be working with Lacuna to introduce this new enterprise-class service, which is part of our broader vision to deliver seamless terrestrial and satellite communications.”

Rob Spurrett, CEO of Lacuna, added: “We are happy to announce this agreement with Omnispace which accelerates getting our technology to market and enables us to start delivering our IoT services around the globe.

“Our customers will be able to access Lacuna’s IoT service directly from inexpensive, battery-powered LoRa® devices to extend connectivity to even the most remote areas of the world.”
