Tobias Stiepak – CEO of MIOT Technology GmbH on The WAN Network Show


In a recent episode of #TheWANNetworkShow, Tobias Stiepak, the CEO of MIOT Technology GmbH – was interviewed by Rémi Lorrain – the Global LoRaWAN Networks Director at Semtech, Vice Chair of the LoRa Alliance® EMEA and Chair of the LoRa Alliance® Network Operator Forum. is the IoT brand of Melita Limited which is a Malta-based company with over 30 years of experience in telecommunications. During the interview, Stiepak discussed the ongoing efforts of to expand its LoRaWAN network coverage across Germany.

LoRaWAN is a wireless communication protocol that is designed to address the specific needs of IoT applications. It is a low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) protocol that uses unlicensed spectrum to enable long-range communication between low-power devices, such as sensors and actuators.

The WAN Network Show podcast series is a valuable resource for massive IoT end users who are looking for the best public LoRaWAN connectivity option for their sensors. End-users may find it challenging to navigate through the various options available to them as there are over 170 public LoRaWAN network operators across all regions. The podcast series simplifies this journey by providing a platform for end-users to connect with public LoRaWAN network operators from around the world. Through interviews and discussions with network operators, the podcast provides insights into the various networks available and helps end-users to make informed decisions about which network to choose as it helps to bridge the gap between end-users and network operators, enabling more efficient and effective IoT connectivity on a global scale.

During the podcast, Stiepak emphasised that is technology agnostic and offers both cellular and LoRaWAN technologies to customers based on their use case. He also explained that the LoRaWAN protocol is ideal for IoT applications that require long-range communication, low power consumption, and low data rates. The protocol allows IoT devices to operate on extremely low power, making it suitable for applications that need to run for extended periods without being charged.

Stiepak also explained how’s commitment to innovation and dedication to providing cutting-edge IoT connectivity solutions to its customers make it an ideal choice for those seeking advanced connectivity solutions. As more devices become connected to the internet, the need for reliable and secure communication protocols will only grow.’s focus on developing cutting-edge IoT infrastructure positions it as a key player in this rapidly-evolving market.

One of the key benefits of LoRaWAN is its ability to support large-scale IoT deployments with thousands or even millions of devices. The technology is highly scalable and can support multiple applications and use cases on a single network. LoRaWAN technology also enables devices to communicate with each other and with cloud-based applications over distances of several kilometres while consuming very little power. This makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of IoT use cases, including smart cities, industrial automation, agriculture, and environmental monitoring.

To enable and facilitate such large-scale deployments, provides all of its IoT customers a free management portal which is a convenient solution for optimising the efficiency of managing IoT-connected devices. With this portal, users can enjoy full and real-time visibility of all their connected devices, enabling them to ensure that everything is operating properly. The Management Portal is accessible for both cellular M2M and LoRaWAN connectivity options.’s IoT customers can use it to create connections, access billing information, view current connection details, suspend, or resume services, and rename SIM cards and sensors. The system provides additional features like API keys and user permissions and levels. Additionally, the portal provides effective troubleshooting capabilities, allowing for the pre-emptive resolution of issues before they escalate. It is designed to be easy to use, super secure, and provides real-time visibility and control of all connected devices. This makes it an ideal solution for managing and monitoring IoT devices, regardless of location or scale.

By leveraging its mother company’s experience in telecommunications, and its expertise in IoT and LoRaWAN technology, can help organisations across industries to implement and scale IoT solutions, enabling them to gain insights and drive efficiencies that can ultimately lead to growth and innovation. is also an active member of the LoRa Alliance® – a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting and advancing the LoRaWAN protocol for IoT connectivity. As a member of the alliance, is committed to collaborating with other members to drive innovation and standardisation in the IoT industry. By working together, members of the LoRa Alliance® can accelerate the adoption and deployment of LoRaWAN technology, unlocking the full potential of the IoT.
