Quectel and The Things Industries Announce Partnership to Power Module Service Management Through LoRaWAN Integration

Quectel, a global provider of IoT solutions, and The Things Industries, a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) LoRaWAN  solutions , announce a partnership that ensures the module Quectel KG200Z LoRaWAN comes integrated with “Works with The Things Stack” and “Secured by The Things Stack” certifications, offering users a robust and secure LoRaWAN solution.

The Quectel KG200Z module harnesses the power of STMicroelectronics’ STM32WL, offering exceptional performance for long-range, low-power applications. It operates within the LoRa high-frequency band, spanning 862 MHz to 928 MHz, and incorporates advanced hardware AES encryption for enhanced security. One of the striking features of the KG200Z is its compact profile, measuring just 12.0 mm × 12.0 mm × 1.8 mm, and its LGA form factor package. This design ensures seamless integration into size-constrained applications while maintaining reliable connectivity.

“Quectel is committed to offering the most reliable and secure IoT solutions to our customers, and our partnership with The Things Industries is a testament to that promise,” commented Norbert Muhrer, President and Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) of Quectel Wireless Solutions. “By combining our LoRaWAN KG200Z module with Quectel’s world-class product security approach with ‘Works with The Things Stack’ and ‘Secured by The Things Stack’ certifications, we are not just offering a product; we are providing a comprehensive solution that meets the highest standards of connectivity and security. This collaboration reflects our commitment to innovation and excellence and working with key ecosystem partners to deliver world-class solutions.”

Through collaboration with The Things Industries, Quectel customers can now use the KG200Z module in the design and construction of their devices, while running additional services through The Things Industries. This partnership allows users to fully control end-to-end encryption and key management, leveraging Quectel’s decades of experience in module capabilities.

Wienke Giezeman, CEO of The Things Industries, commented: “With this partnership, users of Quectel’s LoRaWAN module can fully integrate end-to-end encryption and key management in-house, while benefiting from the company’s extensive experience and of the resources that Quectel modules offer.”

Quectel’s IoT modules are designed with security at the core. From product architecture to firmware/software development, Quectel incorporates industry-leading practices and standards, mitigating potential vulnerabilities with independent third-party test houses and incorporating security practices such as generating SBOMs and VEX files, as well as performing binary firmware analysis across the entire software development lifecycle.

Quectel provides a variety of antennas along with the KG200Z module, allowing developers and device manufacturers to purchase modules and antennas at the same time, simplifying the process and reducing cost and time to market.
