LoRa Technology: Enabling Millions of IoT Devices in Latin America

Posted by David Armour on 20 March 2019

Latin America’s Internet of Things (IoT) market is expected to be worth $44.4 billion in 2019, which is a jump of almost triple from $14.2 billion in 2013. Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) is leading the charge to enable solution providers and customers in Latin America to realize this value by leveraging LoRa Technology’s open LoRaWAN® protocol, vibrant ecosystem, flexible deployment models, and low power, long range capabilities. In this blog I’m excited to share some examples of the innovation the LoRaWAN ecosystem in Latin America is producing, and the value that these solutions are delivering to customers.

Our Gauge on European Utility Week 2018

Posted by David Armour on 13 November 2018
Semtech has just returned from European Utility Week (EUW) 2018 in Vienna, Austria and we are still reeling from the whirlwind of industry activity, innovation and the sheer buzz of companies developing and deploying Internet of Things (IoT) solutions today using Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology). While in previous years EUW events explored the possibility of low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless solutions, this year was less about the technology itself and much more focused on the real-world deployments of networks based on the LoRaWAN® protocol and sensors/meters, not only in the smart utility segment, but with a growing level of activity in other vertical segments too, such as smart buildings, smart cities and smart agriculture.
