LoRa

Answering Your Questions From the “Improved Connectivity With LoRaWAN® Innovations” Webinar

Posted by Rémi Demerlé on 14 April 2021

With governments increasingly recognizing the need to control energy consumption and reduce waste, the requirement to make utilities smart is not only desirable, but also the law in many countries. Although the needs of electricity, gas and water utilities are different and highly specific, each utility type requires similar foundational technologies in terms of smart devices, connectivity and data processing.

Swarm Takes LoRa® Sky-High

Posted by IEEE Spectrum on 08 April 2021

There are plenty of reasons to deploy an Internet of Things (IoT) network in a rural area. But connecting dozens or hundreds of sensors to a network can also be a nightmare. Wind turbines or oil wells benefit from sensors measuring their respective environments and performance, but their operators should count themselves lucky if such energy harvesting facilities happen to be in range of robust cellular networks so they can stay connected to the Internet. The same is true of cargo containers crossing an ocean on a ship; they could be easily tracked with individual identifying devices, but at sea, they need satellites to transmit and receive signals at all.

How to Mitigate the Spread of COVID-19 Within a Facility

Posted by Ron Rieger on 11 January 2021

It is anticipated that during the course of 2021, in most countries, there will be either lightening or lifting of the current COVID-19 lock-downs, impacting many businesses in respect to staff returning to workplaces facilities. This will require companies to improve facility hygiene and implement safeguards to protect employees from a virus outbreak. Many enterprises – in particular factories, distribution centers and logistics warehouses where people work very closely to each other – will also have to revisit standard operating procedures.

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.
