By Ken Briodagh

According to a recent announcement from Mobile World Congress, Kerlink, solutions provider dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Internet of Things America (IoT America), a U.S. company dedicated to deploying IoT solutions across rural America, have teamed up to transform the way rural businesses work by maximizing the power, ease-of-use and security the Kerlink platform brings to these businesses through Kerlink stations and core-network software.

As part of the joint effort, IoT America reportedly is creating a practice with strategic advisors who are solely focused on helping its customers change the way they work across their entire organization, from implementing location functions such as assets, facilities, field services and safety, to improving R&D, inventory management and back-office systems.

Kerlink and IoT America will also collaborate on the development of a new service offering from IoT America designed to help clients fully take advantage of the ecosystem of hardware, software and services in the marketplace. The new offering will help clients discover the highest-impact possibilities within their industries and quickly develop LoRaWAN solutions through proven methods, benefiting from industrial-grade and future-proof IoT dedicated connectivity.

“IoT America was founded to deliver the benefits of advanced technologies, connectivity and solutions to rural America,” said Jeff Klaumann, CTO, Internet of Things America. “We are focused on addressing the needs of growers, producers, agricultural businesses and small towns. Our clients recognize the power of technology in optimizing their operations, which has enabled new distribution opportunities for our solution partners.”

The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit to register now.
