Helium’s Decentralized Approach to LoRa®-based Networks

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 05 March 2020

One of the greatest hurdles to plague any wireless industry is network coverage. That same hurdle is true for the Internet of Things (IoT). Over the last several years, Semtech has worked to create a vibrant ecosystem to drive demand for IoT applications based on its LoRa® devices and the open LoRaWAN® protocol. With a permission-less, omnipresent network in the unlicensed spectrum, some of the barriers to creating and adopting a new class of low power, wide area applications have been removed.

LoRa® Everywhere: Changing the World and Enabling a Better Life

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 17 February 2020

The increasing deployment of Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the open LoRaWAN® protocol is a global phenomenon. Leading industry analyst IHS Markit predicts up to 43 percent of all low power wide area network (LPWAN)-based Internet of Things (IoT) applications are expected to be based on LoRa devices and/or LoRaWAN networks by 2023*. Today, estimates place the number of LoRa-based gateways deployed at over half a million, providing connectivity to support up to two billion potential end devices**. Additionally, it is estimated the total number of LoRa-based end nodes deployed reached 135 million at the beginning of 2020**, enabling a nearly endless number of innovative use cases.

LoRaWAN® Gateways Need Robust ESD and Overvoltage Protection

Posted by Tim Puls on 10 February 2020

Gateways featuring Semtech’s LoRa® devices often reside in electrically harsh industrial environments. As the centerpiece for a LoRaWAN® network, these gateways need to operate in the field for many years. The longevity of the network requires that gateways be immune to a range of transient threats the equipment may encounter over its lifetime. As such, gateway data ports need to be safeguarded from overvoltage transient threats, including electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical fast transients (EFT) and lightning surge.

LoRa®-based Smart Home Innovations at CES

Posted by Byron BeMiller on 20 January 2020

Another CES is in the books, and as usual, it was a blur of visionary concepts demonstrated alongside very useful, near-term technology. While much has already been written about CES 2020, I will focus my impressions on the connectivity technology choices for the smart home and building. While the market continues to evolve clever ways to present, manipulate and use data to make our lives and businesses simpler and more efficient, feeding the appetite of the big data engine presents many challenges in the smart building connectivity market.
