The Things Enterprise Stack Enterprise LoRaWAN Network Server

Securely manage LoRaWAN device fleets and act on sensor data

Background

The biggest challenges for majority of manufacturing enterprises within their plant floor is visibility into operation technology data from machines, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for performing root cause analysis (RCA) when a line or a machine goes down, improving throughput without compromising quality, and understanding micro-stoppages of machinery in real time.

Overview

The Things Industries offers software to operate private LoRaWAN networks at scale. Its global customer base comprises over 300 enterprises with 20,000 long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) gateways and over 700,000 devices, enabling use cases from industrial IoT to cold chain monitoring and asset tracking. The Things Enterprise Stack (TTES) is used to manage and monitor large, remote fleets of devices and gateways with an elaborate toolset. Route telemetry data securely to your cloud application, and quickly configure actions in AWS IoT Core. TTES will save developers time and headache through an API-first platform with many pre-integrated services such as AWS Thing Registry Sync.

The Things Enterprise Stack (TTES) acts as the core of your LoRaWAN network. AWS provides the engine of this core, as you may run TTES on AWS infrastructure, leveraging its ECS, AMI, or SaaS deployment options for scalability and reliability. But you may also use AWS IoT Core as a trusted layer on top of TTES to proxy the management of your devices to your known AWS interfaces, to serverlessly process your telemetry data, and to manage your LoRaWAN secret keys with AWS Secret Manager.
