LoRaWAN, what is it, and who’s using it in Wales

For our first event after the summer, we are pleased to welcome Peter Williams from Welsh Government. He will be talking about “LoRaWAN, what is it, and who’s using it in Wales”. This is on Monday 28th September at 6.15pm.

The session will look at LoRaWAN and the role it can play in the Internet of Things (IoT). As a technology for connecting lots of devices to the IoT, LoRaWAN offers the ability to get useful and more timely data. It has applications in areas from farming to industrial manufacture and transport. 

To sign up to receive the webinar link, go to the event page on Eventbrite.

The event is free and open to everyone.

Biography: Peter Williams

Peter has spent over 20 years working on key Digital delivery and awareness raising projects in Wales, often playing a hands on role in explaining the benefits to organisations, businesses and stakeholders.

In 2013, Peter moved to the Digital Infrastructure Department within the Welsh Government, supporting and leading Digital Infrastructure Developments in the Local Growth and Enterprise Zones, these include the Superfast Cymru Programme, Mobile Infrastructure Project, village and town WiFi Projects, and more recently has led or initiated LoRaWAN pilots and trials.

A fluent Welsh speaker originally from North Wales, and a former farm worker during his teenage years, Peter is convinced some of the best ideas for LoRaWAN will come from farmers, referencing Frank Rennie’s book – 101 uses for Baler Twine.
