First LoRaWAN-based Smart Island Enables IoT on Mallorca

Posted by Semtech Corporate Marketing on 28 November 2018
Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s five Balearic Islands, is known for its white sand and crystal-clear turquoise waters. It’s no surprise the island’s popularity as a tourist destination has steadily grown to more than 10 million visitors in 2017, up from six million in 2010, and just three million in the 1970s. The residential population of this Mediterranean island has doubled from 460,030 in 1970 to 895,000 in 2017. A study by the University of the Balearic Islands anticipates an additional 32.7% population growth by 2030. The report equates this to 25 people for every meter of beach in Mallorca. With increasing environmental limitations, Mallorca’s citizens are developing smart solutions to conserve natural resources by saving water, recycling waste and reducing consumption.

The metropolitan region in Southeastern Virginia called “Hampton Roads” is prone to flooding. The area is home to two million citizens and 14 military installations, including Langley Air Force Base and Naval Station in Norfolk, the largest naval complex in the world. Like many of the 665 coastal communities in the U.S., this region regularly floods during moderate to heavy rains and high tides. Hampton Roads has the additional burden of experiencing land subsidence – the ground is sinking as sea level water is rising.
