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.

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).
