Welcome

Welcome to the home of the Northern Ireland Internet of Things Network (NI-IoT).

NI-IoT aims to offer a low power, wireless, wide-area, network for development of Internet of Things devices.  This network will enable SME’s, makers and researchers to develop IoT solutions that need to communicate with services across large geographic areas while using the least amount of energy possible.

This network will be based upon LoRaWAN technology and will use supporting software developed by Things Connected Network.
