“RAK is excited to be a member of the LoRa Alliance. In the past years, we strived to develop the best LoRaWAN standard-based building blocks, which helps service providers, makers, solution integrators and even end customers shorten their time to market cycle,” said Ken Yu, CEO of RAK. “The building blocks speed up the process for LoRaWAN solutions to transform FROM PROTOTYPE TO COMMERCIAL.”
