The Things Network Coimbra

A smart partnership with The Things Network

We are on a mission to provide to Coimbra and other cities in Portugal with Internet of Things data connectivity through a crowdsourced, open network.

About TTN

The Things Network is an international initiative aiming to create a secure and collaborative Internet of Things (IoT) network in countries around the world. Fikalab and Critical Software pioneered the initiative in Coimbra, providing the city with connectivity through a LoRaWAN (Long-range Wide Area Network).

Connecting cities

A network for everyone

The goal is to create a gigantic and living IoT testbed covering the entire city with gateways, sensors, devices and apps that bring value to the local community and economy.

You can have a real impact

What makes TTN valuable is what we do with it

From monitoring transports, air quality, noise and much else besides, the limit of the projects that can be developed using TTN is our imagination.
