Things Connected

An LPWAN innovation support programme for IoT entrepreneurs and developers

Things Connected

Things Connected is an innovation support programme targeting UK businesses who wish to leverage the capabilities of LPWAN technologies. It will foster the emergence of a strong UK based LPWAN ecosystem to ensure the UK is open and ready to innovate with the Internet of Things (IoT).

Things Connected will initially provide 50 LoRaWAN base stations across London to offer a low power wide area network testbed. Things Connected aims to include other LPWAN technologies as the programme evolves.

Free to use and available to IoT entrepreneurs and developers, Things Connected will enable businesses to develop exciting and novel IoT products and services. The programme will encourage the deployment of sensors, applications and services to meet some of the city’s biggest challenges.

Things Connected

To deliver Things Connected in the capital Digital Catapult will be working in collaboration with BT, Future Cities Catapult, Everynet, Beecham Research, AllThingsTalkBRE, Imperial College London, King’s College London, UCL  and Queen Mary University of London. The programme is funded in part by Digital Catapult with contribution from the partners.

Things Connected is providing a testbed that will ensure the UK is open and ready to innovate with the Internet of Things (IoT). The network is not built for commercial purposes but for testing and trailing new ideas – once developed they can be launched on one of the commercial networks covering the UK today.  Our aim is to have the network ready for use the end of 2016, register to stay up to date with the latest activities:
