Kerlink & The Things Industries Announce Strategic Partnership On Zero-Touch Provisioning Solution for LoRaWAN® IoT Networks

Plug-and-Play Gateways and Network Server Simplify and Speed Up Network Deployments, Accelerate Massive IoT Adoption

By The Things Industries

Kerlink, a specialist in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and The Things Industries, a scalable LoRaWAN® Network Server provider, today announced they are synching their carrier-grade hardware and software to offer customers zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) for IoT network deployments.

This plug-and-play package, the core of a strategic partnership the two companies signed, features Kerlink’s Wirnet® i-Series LoRaWAN® gateways and The Things Industries’ LoRaWAN Network Server – The Things Stack.

This combination allows fast and simple network deployments and management because the gateways can be seamlessly onboarded to the LoRaWAN network server without manual configuration. Benefits of ZTP include:

“This collaborative ZTP solution with Kerlink aims to revolutionize the way solution builders design, launch and operate public and private IoT networks worldwide,” said Wienke Giezeman, The Things Industries CEO. “It resolves the most common concerns customers have when planning their networks: How can they save time and control operational costs, how can they reduce configuration complexity and human errors in deployment, and, of course, how can they scale their network.”

The solution is implemented by Kerlink’s “Magic Link” program, a single-use URL that automatically runs personalized configuration, and which has been validated on more than 20,000 deployed Wirnet® i-Series gateways.

“Fully secured and totally automated, ZTP is the easiest way to provision, configure and onboard all Kerlink Wirnet® i-Series LoRaWAN gateways, after power up, and it can run personalized configuration on thousands of gateways in minutes,” said Yann Bauduin, Kerlink Chief Sales Officer. ”The Things Stack LoRaWAN® network server combined with Kerlink gateways ensures security, reliability and scalability in a solution that can accelerate massive IoT adoption globally.”

Kerlink joined The Things Industries and more than 70 LoRaWAN® and IoT leaders presenting or displaying their solutions at The Things Conference 2023, Sept. 21-22, in Amsterdam. As a Gold partner, the company showcased its solutions on the exhibition floor, and provide attendees with more information about Magic Link and ZTP. Get tickets
