The "LoRa IoT Plan" uses LoRa hotspots created by Hon Hai, and with Hon Hai and Asia Pacific Telecom investment, the Hon Hai network is responsible for systems integration and construction. However, Asia Pacific Telecom is in charge of the key network operations.

Hon Hai Group and Asia Pacific Telecom CEO Fang Ming Lu stated that in July Taipei City, Hsinchu City, and Taoyuan City will set up 500 “LoRa Hotspots.” In the third quarter, the network will be extended to be the first “LoRa IoT Network” to cover all of Taiwan, and in the future it will bring about a new-generation 5G mobile network standard.

Asia Pacific Telecom will also collaborate with Advantech to establish a “LoRa Test Site” in Advantech’s Linkou area. Advantech will provide IoT-related sensors, gateways, and technologies for cloud data collection applications and analysis.

“LoRa” features low power wide area (LPWA) or network technology, which can be used for a variety of IoT equipment and connected devices, such as water meters, electricity meters, automobiles, and automatic vending machines.

In Taiwan, in addition to Asia Pacific Telecom and the Hon Hai group, Taipei City and Gemtek are also teaming up to establish 12 “LoRa Hotspots” and creating Asia’s first capital city IoT platform with “LoRa.”
