ABOUT

The Things Network

The Things Network is building a network for the Internet of Things by creating abundant data connectivity, so applications and businesses can flourish. The technology they use is called LoRaWAN and it allows for things to talk to the internet without 3G or WiFi. The Things Network is built by the community with more than 42 000 members. Everyone can contribute by placing a gateway and expand the network. The more gateways are placed, the larger the coverage. At this moment, there are already around 3950 gateways up and running

Zerynth
