TAMPA, Fla. – June 07, 2018 – Occam Technology Group, a full-service global contract engineering design and development firm located in Tampa Bay, today announced its collaboration with Google Cloud and is now offering the OccamSmart Network Server Stack for LoRaWANTM on Google Cloud Platform.
Earlier this year, Occam Technology Group officially entered the Internet of Things product market with its own offering of LPWAN-focused products under the OccamSmart brand. The availability of the brand’s Network Server Stack on Google Cloud Platform enables Occam Technology Group’s clients to innovate, reduce costs, and implement a complete LoRaWANTM ecosystem within Google Cloud’s global infrastructure and security model.
“Our relationship with Google Cloud is a big step for Occam Technology Group as it gives us the opportunity to help clients accelerate their adoption of IoT infrastructures at scale,” said Raymond Carr, Occam Technology Group’s Chief Technology Officer and founder. “With the rapid growth of the LoRaWANTM ecosystem and Google Cloud’s participation in the LoRa Alliance, creates a clear signal that the use of the LoRaWANTM protocol in the IoT landscape is gaining traction.”
OccamSmart’s Network Server Stack is an easy-to-deploy component on Google Cloud Platform which implements a LoRaWANTM v1.0 Class A network server seamlessly on the internet. The Network Server Stack receives LoRaWANTM device data from gateways which it de-duplicates, validates, and decrypts. The data is then published to an MQTT broker.
Additionally, the Network Server Stack manages device registrations to allow devices to join the network, send and receive data. The server stack supports both Over-The-Air Activation (OTAA) or Activation by Personalization (ABP), as well as Adaptive Data Rate, confirmed uplink data messages, and message deduplication.
The Network Server Stack can be easily deployed in just a few clicks using Google Cloud Platform’s Cloud Launcher, and quickly configured to start receiving your LoRaWANTM traffic.
