The advantage of long-range-radio technology is that no internet connection or SIM card iss needed to connect. Furthermore, the network allows the provision of value-added services, some of which are already running through pilot tests.

AH listed a number of schemes using the technology, including heating provider Gyor-Szol. This can remotely read the meters of 40 consumers using the Long range radio network. The local council of Tamasi (SW Hungary), meanwhile, has set up a system able to remotely monitor the living conditions of elderly citizens and send notifications if an intervention iss needed.
