The Things Network joins Digital Twin Consortium’s open collaborative community to accelerate the implementation of digital twin-enabling technology and solutions by companies. As part of this collaboration, The Things Network brings in the data from its Device Repository to the open-source Digital Twins. The Device Repository holds more than 1500 device profiles from 43 vendors. It serves as a primary data source for device catalogs and onboarding devices on LoRaWAN networks.

“We are thrilled to invite The Things Network to Digital Twin Consortium,” said Dr. Richard Soley, Executive Director, Digital Twin Consortium. “Their experience and knowledge of device data sources will be invaluable as we work to further the use of digital twin enabling technologies in the industry.”

The Device Repository helps device makers normalize and contextualize the data their devices send to the cloud. The Things Industries will engage in efforts to make sure the data standards used will align with the standards set by the Digital Twin Consortium.

Device Repository is The Things Stack feature that makes onboarding new devices easy as ever. It simplifies the utilization of devices and is an excellent method to publicly record data and code connected to the device. All parameters, including payload format, decoder, and firmware version are supported by The Things Stack network server.

The Things Network is already using Device Repository to support developers across the globe in building LoRaWAN solutions by providing open tools and a universal network. A safe and collaborative Internet of Things network is developed using robust end-to-end encryption that covers different regions across the world. With thousands of gateways in operation, it gives coverage to millions of people.
