IOT Networks in the Philippines

The establishment of networks dedicated to IOT is accelerating in the Philippines. TheThingsNetwork (TTN) has entered into a partnership (July-2018) with PacketWorx for the deployment of 4100 Base Stations LORAWAN to cover the Philippine country. While Globe Telecom is in the NB-IOT test phase. And SigFox would consider a deployment too, after Thailand and Malaysia …

  • Shipbuilding and repair
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Electronics
  • Mining and Extraction

  • Tourism

In terms of challenges, the poor quality of its infrastructure is often mentioned, Philippines ranked 91 among 144 countries regarding infrastructure quality.

Mapping IOT Opportunities with Philippines Challenges

When one compares, on the one hand, the opportunities currently developed in the Internet of Things at the global level, with the specificities and challenges of the Philippine economy, it appears that the following sectors are likely to develop with the Internet of Things in the Philippines:
  • The development of LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks) wireless telecommunications networks. Indeed, networks such as LORAWAN or NB-IOT make it possible to cover large geographical areas, at a limited cost, without requiring a heavy and complex infrastructure.
  • Smart Industries: Industry 4.0. Automotive, shipbuilding, Mining and extraction in the broad sense, and the network of their subcontractors (metalworking…)
  • Smart Agriculture (a main business sector)
  • Smart Cities (Tourism and citizens…)
  • Smart Building
