Internet of Things adoption in Thailand is expected to receive a boost as IoT network operators continue to jump into the market.
Several players are engaging in wireless technology that supports IoT. They include Things on Net Co, an authorised provider of the Sigfox network in Thailand; CAT Telecom, which provides the LoRaWan network; and Advanced Info Service (AIS), which is pursuing NB-IoT technology.
"We see an opportunity in IoT because of increasing user awareness and lower cost of connected devices," said Prapan Asavaplungprohm, chief executive of Things on Net.
He said there are various business cases in which IoT can be used to mitigate problems, reduce costs and broaden revenue sources.
Things on Net, which has registered capital of 100 million baht, is under the umbrella of Platt Nera, a Thai outsourcing and systems integrator.
Things on Net was chosen by Sigfox, a France-based IoT network operator, to use its technology. Sigfox's low-power network system allows remote connectivity and continuous small messages sent among IoT devices.
