Together with companies from the LoRa Alliance™, Semtech will demonstrate its LoRa Technology and the broad range of innovative, next-generation IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and services it enables at Mobile World Congress 2017.
“The LoRaWAN specification, based on Semtech’s LoRa Technology, gives LoRa Alliance members the feature set necessary to deploy interoperable long-range, cost-effective IoT infrastructure and solutions,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of Wireless Products for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “The standardized ecosystem of telecom companies, IoT application makers, and system integrators within the LoRa Alliance continues to grow, creating the framework to scale IoT and bring the associated benefits of a smart planet to fruition.”
Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, a group of more than 400 companies committed to driving and enhancing the LoRaWAN specification to ensure interoperability and scalability of LPWANs and IoT applications. Through its work with member companies and IoT industry groups, the LoRa Alliance is making LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low-power, long-range IoT applications. To date, there are LoRaWAN public and private networks in more than 50 countries.
The show is open Feb. 27 to March 2 and is located at two Barcelona, Spain venues: Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuic. The LoRa Alliance IoT Pavilion is at the Fira Gran Via. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting with a Semtech representative.
Semtech LoRa Technology is a widely adopted low-power, long-range solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers, and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
Key Features of LoRa Wireless RF Technology:
- Long Range: A single base station using LoRa Technology enables deep penetration capability for dense urban environments and indoor coverage, while also providing the ability to connect to sensors more than 15-30 miles away in rural areas.
- Low Power: The LoRaWAN protocol was developed specifically for low power and enables unprecedented battery lifetime of up to 20 years depending on the application.
Geolocation: Enables tracking applications without GPS or additional power consumption.
- Low Cost: LoRa Technology reduces up front infrastructure investments and operating costs, as well as end-node sensor costs.
- Open Standard: The LoRaWAN protocol ensures interoperability among applications, IoT solution providers and telecom operators to speed up adoption and deployment.
