LoRaWAN® Networks Now Available for AWS IoT Core

Posted by Alistair Fulton on 15 December 2020

Building upon Semtech’s previous collaboration with Amazon on its network, Amazon Sidewalk, Semtech has today announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable LoRaWAN® network connectivity on AWS IoT Core, its managed Cloud service that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with Cloud applications and other devices.

The LoRaWAN open specification is a widely adopted low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol based on Semtech’s LoRa® chipsets, leveraging the unlicensed radio spectrum in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The LoRa Alliance®, a non-profit association, drives the standardization and global harmonization of the LoRaWAN protocol.

At Semtech we are focused on enabling developers to rapidly innovate by delivering products and tools that make it easy for Cloud-first, mobile and embedded developers to develop Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN delivers a deep integration of devices featuring the LoRaWAN protocol with AWS IoT Core to provide developers with a “plug & play” way to combine the strengths of the LoRaWAN protocol with the deep capabilities of AWS IoT services.

Once gateways are provisioned and connected, this built-in integration automatically and securely routes device data to AWS IoT Core Rules Engine and AWS IoT Analytics, accelerating developers’ ability to build rich, data-driven IoT applications.

LoRa® Everyone: Enabling a Safe, Sustainable & Comfortable Planet for Us All

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 08 October 2020

Internet of Things (IoT) applications for LoRaWAN® networks have been deployed on every populated continent and even currently orbit the Earth via satellite. More than 158 million end-devices featuring LoRa® have been deployed, with use cases ranging from tracking cattle on connected ranches to monitoring energy use in the home. In January 2020, Semtech shared examples of how LoRa devices and LoRaWAN networks provide a unique combination of flexibility and scalability, connecting applications to better care for, conserve and connect our world in our LoRa Everywhere campaign. Read the LoRa Everywhere blog to learn more about those choice applications creating a smarter planet today.
