Kerlink and Microshare Announce LoRaWAN™ Integration in Google Cloud IoT



System Allows Creating ‘Carrier-Grade Solutions at Cloud Scale in Hours Rather than Months’

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 7, 2018, 06:00 PM PDT – Kerlink (ALKLK – FR0013156007), a specialist and global leader in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and IoT data-management firm Microshare Inc. today unveiled the first-ever seamless integration of carrier-grade LoRaWAN™ solutions into Google Cloud’s IoT architecture.

The innovative Microshare/Kerlink approach ensures complete security of data flowing from LoRaWAN devices to extended IoT networks. As device-generated data is securely transported, annotated and unpacked in LoRaWAN networks to create context and actionable business insights, ownership rights and origins will be stamped and respected. That means network owners will be compliant with regulatory requirements, such as GDPR, the EU regulation that took effect on May 25. Most important, leveraging Microshare’s unique governance, audit and micro-contracting features, users can share data among ecosystem partners securely to produce efficiencies, insights and new revenue streams.

The announcement came at the start of the 10th Open House of the LoRa Alliance™, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN standard for IoT low-power wide-area (LPWA) networks. Google Cloud announced on May 31 that it joined the LoRa Alliance as a Sponsor Member. Earlier this year, Kerlink and Microshare, both active alliance members, formed a partnership built around LoRaWAN IoT development, which is now being extended to Google Cloud.

Combining Kerlink and Microshare technology with Google’s Cloud IoT Core and the suite of data-management tools available in the Google Cloud IoT platform brings a degree of sophistication necessary to support the next generation of value-added IoT solutions without the need for expensive internal IT resources.

“By integrating Microshare and Kerlink’s technologies in Google Cloud, we can create carrier-grade solutions at cloud-scale in hours rather than months,” said Yannick Delibie, Kerlink CTIO and CEO of the company’s U.S. subsidiary, Kerlink Inc. “Reducing the burden of security, scale and reliability allows both solution providers and customers to focus on rapidly delivering valuable business insights with their LoRaWAN networks.”

“We’ve seen rapid adoption of LoRaWAN as a leading enabler for easily deploying cost-effective IoT sensors globally, and we view Google’s decision to join the alliance as a validation of everything Microshare has been pursuing for the past three years,” said Ron Rock, CEO Microshare. “A lot has been achieved in making reliable, long-battery-life devices and carrier-grade networks, but this means nothing if the data generated and transported is not easily accessible to business users and securely shared between multiple organizations.”
