LOS ANGELES & MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--myDevices, the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company that “simplifies the connected world” and creators of the Cayenne IoT solution builder, and X-TELIA, the first LoRaWAN™ public network in Quebec, today announced its partnership dedicated to the development and deployment of IoT solutions.
myDevices develops technology that allows businesses to quickly design, prototype and commercialize IoT solutions. myDevices’ Cayenne IoT Project Builder has become the industry standard for creating and delivering finished IoT solutions. The X-TELIA network is specifically designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) and will provide the infrastructure necessary for the development of solutions that require highly secure, low-power, long-range, and low-cost connectivity.
“Our collaboration will dramatically speed time-to-market for companies by allowing the development of IoT applications in industries such as asset management, smart parking, air quality, waste management, and water quality without creating a line of code,” said Martin Jodoin, co-founder and CTO of X-TELIA. “Once a solution is created with Cayenne, it can easily and immediately be deployed on our network which is based on LoRa® wireless technology and the LoRaWAN™ open communication protocol.”
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 soon, before expanding into other provinces. Both companies are also collaborating on a Living Lab program designed for university students to design real-world IoT solutions.
myDevices and X-TELIA are members of The LoRa Alliance.

The technology utilized in a LoRaWAN™ network is designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost prohibitive to connect. With its unique penetration capability, a LoRaWAN™ gateway deployed on a building or tower can connect to sensors more than 10 miles away or to water meters deployed underground or in basements. The LoRaWAN™ protocol offers unique and unequalled benefits in terms of bi-directionality, security, mobility and accurate localization that are not addressed by other LPWAN technologies. These benefits will enable the diverse use cases and business models that will enable deployments of large-scale LPWAN IoT networks globally.
About the LoRa Alliance™
The LoRa Alliance™ is an open, non-profit association that has grown to more than 400 members since its inception in March 2015, becoming one of the largest and fastest growing alliances in the technology sector. Its members are closely collaborating and sharing their experience to promote the LoRaWAN™ protocol as the leading open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWA connectivity. With the technical flexibility to address multiple IoT applications, both static and mobile, and a certification program to guarantee interoperability, the LoRaWAN™ is already being deployed globally by major mobile network operators and is anticipated to widely expand throughout 2017.
