Along with companies from the LoRa Alliance™, Semtech will demonstrate its LoRa Technology specifically displaying the broad range of next-generation IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and services it enables. End-to-end IoT solutions embedded with LoRa Technology are available now and
being deployed worldwide in a variety of LPWA applications to solve real-world problems including Smart Cities and Smart Metering. With LoRa Technology's deep penetration capability and low-power performance, users can closely monitor water, gas and electricity consumption to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Smart parking solutions, asset tracking and environment sensors are helping reduce traffic congestion throughout cities while monitoring pollution levels at a safe level.
"Next-generation IoT technologies are growing and so are the use cases that are being developed," said Vivek Mohan, Director for Semtech's Wireless and Sensing Products Group. "LoRa Technology has improved the way we interact and addresses some of the biggest challenges facing our society including public safety and conserving natural resources."
The IoT Pavilion will be exhibiting in Hall W5 Booth #96. For show information, visit the MWC Shanghai website.
Key Features of LoRa 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 adoption and deployment.
