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.
On September 20, I was honored to represent Semtech at The Alibaba Cloud Computing Conference 2018 in Hangzhou, China. At the conference, Alibaba Cloud presented its impressive strategy for the Internet of Things (IoT) market and the “Darwin Plan” was officially launched, announcing the comprehensive promotion of LoRa®-based network coverage and popularization. Alibaba Cloud’s IoT vision is for every enterprise in the future to integrate Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technolocy (LoRa Technology).
In the first half of this two part blog series, Alistair Fulton, VP of IoT and Wireless Product Marketing for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group, shared his perspective on what to expect from Semtech and its its LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) in the future, and the evolution and future of the LoRaWAN™ open source protocol. In this final installment, Fulton discusses the ideal LoRa Technology use case, and how Semtech is working to enable IoT solution availability for businesses. Read part one here.
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.
Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 (#MWCA18) recently concluded, showcasing the latest and greatest in wireless technology innovations and market-ready solutions for connectivity and the rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT).

The North American installment of GSMA’s Mobile World Congress conference will be held in Los Angeles, September 12-14, 2018. This year’s event theme, “Imagine a Better Future,” is an inspiring rally cry for the 25,000 expected attendees representing more than 110 countries, coming together to explore what’s new in Internet of Things (IoT) and smart city innovation.
One of the hottest new terms in the technology world is ‘Edge Computing.’ If you’re not familiar with the term, the ‘Edge’ is simply a device or hub that processes data and makes decisions closer to the end device rather than sending data to the Cloud for a response. This allows for lower latency and in some cases additional security. The Edge device may still send data to the Cloud to improve machine learning (ML) models and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, but this may be a subset of data received at the Edge and sent less frequently.
