For Arduino, joining the Lora Alliance will allow it to further develop the IoT sector and contribute to widespread adoption of LoRaWAN on a global scale.

For Interlink, the LoRa Alliance will help to expand manufacturing and integration of scalable printed electronic sensor technologies for a wide spectrum of products.

Netze is working with LoRaWAN to make inroads in the introduction of IoT for smart utility use cases and provide capacities for smart city applications.
