European Utility Week (EUW) 2018 will be held on November 6 to 8 in Vienna, Austria and all of the biggest names in metering and utility management are eagerly preparing.
The 44th installment of the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) Exhibition recently concluded in Rome, Italy. At the conference, Semtech featured several products for the critical hyper-scale data center and 5G wireless markets. The technologies demonstrated by Semtech from its diverse portfolio of Optical solutions include the ClearEdge® CDR platform for low-cost 25G SFP28 modules that will be an essential component of the 5G infrastructure build out. Additionally, Semtech demonstrated its new line of Tri-Edge™ CDRs and FiberEdge™ linear Physical Media Dependent (PMD) devices that will help drive current Cloud data center build outs.
The metropolitan region in Southeastern Virginia called “Hampton Roads” is prone to flooding. The area is home to two million citizens and 14 military installations, including Langley Air Force Base and Naval Station in Norfolk, the largest naval complex in the world. Like many of the 665 coastal communities in the U.S., this region regularly floods during moderate to heavy rains and high tides. Hampton Roads has the additional burden of experiencing land subsidence – the ground is sinking as sea level water is rising.
As I’ve discussed in a previous blog post, the ability to locate assets, understand the context they are in and what is happening to them in a given moment, is in many ways the “killer app” in the internet of things (IoT). This is particularly true of many of the assets that leverage low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies to enable end-to-end IoT solutions today for which the long range and low power of Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) is a key enabler of customer value.
In the past several years, there has been a significant expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) in India. Leading network providers Tata Communications and SenRa have rolled out public LPWANs (Low Power Wide Area Networks) making India more interconnected. With the rise in IoT adoption and market evolution, device manufacturers are creating value-added devices such as sensors for chlorine detection in drinking water, smart manhole covers, transformer monitoring, cattle tracking, and smart cities applications.
