How to Name and Brand Your LoRa-based Application

25 February 2019 / by Semtech Corporate Marketing

Semtech-LoRa-Blog-GuidelinesWith the support of a vast and rapidly growing ecosystem, more and more companies are developing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions based on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology). There are hundreds of LoRa-based products and services currently available in Semtech’s Catalog in the LoRa Community™. Additionally, several members of the LoRaWAN-based ecosystem offer online catalogs full of LoRa-based solutions. Find a list of catalogs within the #ShopLoRaWAN blog.

Semtech has recently updated the LoRa Trademark and Brand Use Guide to help the ecosystem with LoRa-based product and service naming. Read below to get started, and be sure to download and follow the complete branding guide while naming your product or service.

Key Highlights from the Trademark and Brand Use Guide

Since the LoRa trademark name is protected, here are a few common mistakes to avoid when naming your solution:

  • Using or incorporating the LoRa trademark name as part of, or combined with, any other product or company name, trademark, model number, or other product identifier
  • Using the LoRa trademark as a generic term or making any modification or alteration to the LoRa trademark
