New Zealand distributors are fleshing out their portfolios of internet of things technologies as telcos prepare to roll out 5G networks.

Access Networks, which has added Tektelic Communications' LoRaWAN gateways, sensors and applications to its offerings in Australia, New Zealand and Pacific islands, is the latest to announce a new distribution deal.

The move comes shortly after Ingram Micro teamed with Taiwanese IoT developer Netvox and a duo of earlier announcements of Access Networks' own, with Ursalink and Proxim Wireless.

Earlier still, HX Systems launched in New Zealand with a trio of IoT oriented devices.

It isn't just the promise of 5G igniting interest in the space, but also that of another specialist LoRaWAN network provider entering the local market.

Mark Dasent, sales and marketing director at Access Networks, said the new Tektelic partnership had been established in response to the rising excitement and demand for IoT solutions utilizing LoRaWAN in the region.

Tektelic's outdoor gateways were designed to meet a -40C cold start to the +60C temperature range, IP-67 environmental specifications (tested to one metre submerged), offering  in-service software updates and robust system integration.

Tektelic’s director of sales and marketing, Jack Stuart, said the company was pleased to partner with Access Networks to support the growth of IoT, and specifically LoRaWAN, deployments and projects in the region.

Tektelic offers more than 10 unique gateways, starting from entry level plug-and-play variants, up to carrier grade products designed for macro level deployments in diverse environmental conditions with low cost of ownership.

One of the company's most popular and widely deployed devices is the smart room sensor, which accommodates many different sensing functions and was easy to provision and operate, with five to 10-year battery life.
