M2M /IoT Exhibition – Paris, France

He used this opportunity to meet with QL3D, our existing distributor for the French IoT/M2M markets. Below are some photos of the comprehensive display of Poynting antennas on the QL3D stand. This, combined with their effort to translate our product guide into French, attracted a lot of interest from attendees.

Gamma Conference – Poland
Gamma as one of the leading distributors of subassemblies and electronic components in Poland and proud partner of Poynting Antennas. Dariusz Bednarczyk and his colleagues organized a wonderful and well attended IoT Solution Day on 19 March 2019, during which leading suppliers of IoT products, services and solutions presented their product proposals for the development of the IoT industry.
Tjeerd Huitema, MD Poynting Europe, provided, what attendees expressed, a very interesting speech on the critical role the (broadband) antenna plays in wireless IoT communication solutions. It is the Poynting antenna which ensures a stable and reliable connection between the monitored object and the telecoms network (or other network technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox). Only with high performance and future proof antennas one can be assured that data are transferred accurately and one has access to a remote site when required on wished. The antenna is critical to your bottom line and makes a real difference!
