We are excited to announce the launch of our AirVantage portfolio of services, specially designed to help you simplify every aspect of IoT.
The European radio regulations can be ambiguous when it comes to certifying and understanding LoRaWAN® network operation. Here we take a look at how an end device built with a LoRa® chipset should be certified for regulatory compliance, as well as the duty-cycle capacity we can expect from an end device deployed in a practical LoRaWAN network.
Surveillance cameras have become ubiquitous in today's world. Whether we're taking a morning jog in the neighborhood, escorting our children to school or commuting to work, chances are security cameras are monitoring us. Americans are captured on security cameras about 238 times weekly. The widespread adoption of security cameras on both private and public properties is on the rise, primarily due to ease of installation and the sense of safety they offer. Once set up, cameras promptly begin recording images and videos, allowing authorized users to access real-time video feeds over the internet via smartphones or other devices.

Semtech Corporation a high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems and Cloud connectivity service provider, proudly introduces its latest advancement in product security with the creation of the Semtech Product Security Scorecards. These Scorecards empower Semtech product and development teams to fortify their security and provide a simplified product security score.
Today's automobile stands at the forefront of technological advancement with a vast array of sophisticated functions such as self-driving capability, GPS navigation, hands-free phone operation via Bluetooth further enhanced by Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM along with many cutting-edge features that improve safety and comfort. The more features are added to an automobile, the more semiconductor components are used. The semiconductor components employed in automotive applications must satisfy the qualification criteria outlined in AEC-Q standards. This international standard specifies the qualifications necessary for packaged integrated circuits and discrete devices utilized in in-vehicle electronic systems. As more interfaces are used for high-speed signal transmission, more semiconductor components are added to automotive systems.

The collaboration between Semtech’s LoRa EdgeTM platform and AWS IoT services unlocks new possibilities in supply chains and logistics asset tracking.
According to a survey conducted by Cleo, 85% of companies experience financial losses due to integration issues within their supply chains. Shockingly, 24% of those companies are losing $500k or more annually, while 14% report losses exceeding $1 million annually. This represents a 40% increase in companies facing such significant losses compared to the previous year.
Earlier this year, Amazon opened their Amazon Sidewalk network to the public. With Sidewalk signal already covering over 90% of the U.S. population leveraging LoRa’s long range technology, Amazon Sidewalk offers LoRa as one of its connectivity options for device makers to connect LPWAN IoT devices into the sidewalk, enabling a new class of devices with long range community coverage. In areas of the U.S. where Sidewalk coverage is unavailable, or outside the U.S., devices using the new Oxit module can connect to any compatible LoRaWAN® network, enabling AWS customers to connect their device to any compatible AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN or integrated public network. In addition, LoRaWAN technology not only enables customers to connect to an alternative public LoRaWAN network, but also deploy a gateway utilizing LoRaWAN and create a network anywhere.
The recently announced LoRa Basics™ Modem v4 feature release includes a powerful new feature – relay. It allows customers to add battery-operated, easy-to-deploy relay nodes that act as network extenders. These relay nodes can be placed in remote locations or in areas where signal strength is weak due to extreme distances or circumstances, effectively extending the range of existing gateway(s) and networks using LoRaWAN® connectivity.
The LoRa Basics Modem v4 feature release revolutionizes LoRaWAN® end device development by providing customers with:
In today’s interconnected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) is ubiquitous. With this growth comes increasing exposure to security threats and exploitation attempts by malicious actors, threatening customers ranging from critical infrastructure operators to residential consumers who rely on IoT devices for safety and communications. The U.S. government’s recent Executive Order (EO), “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity,” responds to these risks in part by introducing cybersecurity labeling for consumer IoT products, offering vendors a clear and universal way to inform purchasers of their products of the security features and capabilities present in those products, as well as a living mechanism to quickly access information about any vulnerabilities affecting those products. By making security information more accessible to consumers, this program will lead to more informed consumer IoT purchasing decisions and improved security across a landscape we increasingly share.
