Bring data securely from LoRaWAN endpoints to the cloud or your apps

Do you want to deliver your IoT solution to your client fast and with minimal effort? Would you like to connect a number of dispersed field endpoints with a cloud or private backend application? No problem, we can help you bring your valuable data securely to the right application.

NIL’s LoRaWAN Network Server for IoT solution handles the provisioning and managing of your endpoints and gateways in an efficient, scalable, and secure way. It is a central part of the LoRaWAN environment that peers with all of the LoRaWAN endpoints and then links them to a specific application server.

Communication between the endpoints and LoRaWAN Network Server is provided through LoRaWAN gateways and securedwith encryption on the network layer. An additional level of security of transmitted data is provided on the application layer from the endpoint all the way to the application.

The LoRaWAN Network Server provides the management of gateways and endpoints, authentication and authorization of endpoints, network encryption and decryption, data routing, adapting data rates, eliminating duplicate packets, and interfacing with applications.

NIL LoRaWAN Network Server for IoT

Secure, easy to manage, and transparent

Your users can do everything on their own in minutes

On the LoRaWAN Network Server, you can take care of registering and managing your LoRaWAN devices and gateways and defining routing to the corresponding application. We already provide interconnectivity with the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. There are APIs available for integration with your on-premise applications.

We take care of secure multitenancy

Your endpoints, gateways, and applications are managed on the LoRaWAN Network Server separately from other organizations. Your users may only manage your devices.

We do not charge you for endpoints

We understand your IoT service financial complexity due to too many variables that contribute to the end-price service and often lead your service to financial unsustainability. Our service is based on gateway subscriptions only.
