Langnau am Albis, Switzerland – 12.12.2022. – LORIOT the IoT company enabling long-range IoT networks worldwide, announces the latest major release of version 8.0 of its Network Management System (NMS).

The roll out on the 6 Professional Public Servers, including the deployed in the United Arab Emirates, will take place in the coming weeks, while the private servers will be updated in accordance with each customer.
Version 8 of LORIOT NMS, named after the peculiar Hummingbird bird, was developed to meet the growing demand for massive IoT deployments worldwide. It introduces significant features and performance upgrades on both the back-end and front-end of the server infrastructure and a redesigned User Interface based on the most recent UX best practices and built according to the cutting-edge micro-frontend architecture.
Main upgrades include scalability and performance improvements, new gateways supported, Datacake IoT platform integration, and passive roaming improvements. Hummingbird also includes the LoRaWAN® Roaming Hub, a centralized roaming service hosted, maintained, and operated by LORIOT that allows users and customers to extend their coverage by utilizing gateway connectivity from other LoRaWAN® networks both backed by LORIOT or by third parties, as well as share their gateway connectivity with others.

Next to the already operating LoRaWAN® Network Server, the version 8.0 will be the first release of the LORIOT Hybrid Network Management System that is able to set up and operate hybrid (using both LoRaWAN® and mioty® protocols) radio networks on a large scale.
The mioty capabilities will be only available as a premium feature in preview for private instances of the new LORIOT Hybrid Network Management System.
