This year’s LoRaWAN® World Expo, held in Paris in early July, featured a wealth of information exchanged by leading industry figures from around the world. The live event was a true success with more than 1,200 attendees from 68 countries – the largest LoRa Alliance® event ever held.
The LoRaWAN® standard has been officially approved as a standard for low power wide area networking (LPWAN) by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies.
With leading long range and low power, LoRaWAN networks are being utilized today in hundreds of innovative applications for smart cities, homes and buildings, agriculture, metering, supply chain and logistics, and more. The LoRa Alliance® is committed to enabling the large-scale deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) applications operating on the LoRaWAN® protocol. Members benefit from a vibrant ecosystem of active contributors offering solutions, products and services to create new and sustainable business opportunities worldwide.
The LoRa Alliance® exists to develop and promote the open LoRaWAN® protocol and its ecosystem to deliver massive Internet of Things (IoT) worldwide. To reach this goal, it is crucial that member companies are successful in LoRaWAN-related pursuits and obtain real value from membership. This is especially true for adopter members who benefit from the large presence the LoRa Alliance has in the world of IoT. Derek Wallace, VP of Marketing for the LoRa Alliance, goes even further on the importance of providing value to Alliance members:
The LoRaWAN®-based ecosystem was back again at the LoRa Alliance®’s Annual Members Meeting and LoRaWAN Live, which took place in Berlin, Germany, June 11-13. With a record registration of approximately 527 individuals from all over the world, this year’s edition of the event was a three-day whirlwind of new products, important announcements and cutting-edge demonstrations of Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN networking protocol.
It’s back! The LoRa Alliance® will be hosting its Annual Members Meeting and LoRaWAN® Live in Berlin, Germany, June 11-13. The world’s leading telecom companies, system integrators, sensor manufacturers, start-ups, developers, and Internet of Things (IoT) enthusiasts will convene at the event to present their newest products, discuss marketing strategies and discuss the future of Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and the LoRaWAN networking protocol.
I have just returned from Mobile World Congress (MWC), the most anticipated mobile industry event of the year with 109,000 visitors from 198 countries, and I’m in awe of the pace of innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT) market, as well as the speed at which technologies are rapidly evolving to market-ready solutions. This observation could not be more true for Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology).
Last week’s Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles was a whirlwind of tech innovation, statistics, and speeches by leaders in the field. The themes of this year’s installment in the series of conferences by GSMA revolved around 5G, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, and last but not least, Internet of Things.
