Could Santa Claus Benefit from LoRa®-based IoT?

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 16 December 2019

IHS Markit predicts up to 43 percent of all low power wide area networks (LPWANs) will be based on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol by 2023*. As of December 2019, more than half a million LoRa-enabled gateways have been deployed globally, supporting 135 million LoRa-based end nodes**. With the global adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and the growing market share of LoRa-enabled applications, it is becoming more and more difficult to identify a business segment that could not benefit from some level of connected devices. With new LoRa use cases being announced regularly, and growing numbers of worldwide LoRaWAN network deployments (public or private), it seems the only limit to these applications is the imagination of the developers and system integrators solving real world business challenges today.

Part 3: Creating a Smart and Efficient Energy Grid with LoRa®

Posted by Rémi Demerlé on 07 November 2019

In 2019, smart electricity meters will account for 63 percent of the nearly 200 million electricity meter shipments expected around the world, according to a 2018 IHS report. This volume of smart electricity meter shipments is forecasted to increase in size over the next five years. With the rise of low-power wide-area networking (LPWAN) technologies, such as Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® open protocol, new “smarter” metering solutions are proving to be a compelling alternative to other connectivity options for both Internet of Things (IoT) networks and smart grid applications. With several hundred known use cases (and growing), LoRa-based devices and LoRaWAN networks represent the leading choice for IoT solutions today.

Connecting Asia Pacific to the Cloud with LoRa

Posted by Vivek Mohan on 17 January 2019

LoRaWAN®-based Internet of Things (IoT) deployments are global and the number of deployments continues to increase yearly. In 2019, 40%* of all low power, wide area networks (LPWANs) are predicted to run on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology), and LoRaWAN-based networks are present in approximately 100 countries today. In the Asia Pacific region specifically, experts anticipate the number of all IoT-connected devices will jump from 3.1 billion in 2015, to 8.6 billion in 2020. Some recent innovative LoRa Technology use cases from this region are featured below.

LoRa-based Metering Solutions: Our Gauge on European Utility Week

Posted by David Armour on 13 November 2018
Semtech has just returned from European Utility Week (EUW) 2018 in Vienna, Austria and we are still reeling from the whirlwind of industry activity, innovation and the sheer buzz of companies developing and deploying Internet of Things (IoT) solutions today using Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology). While in previous years, EUW events explored the possibility of low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless solutions, this year was less about the technology itself and much more focused on the real-world deployments of networks based on the LoRaWAN® protocol and sensors/meters, not only in the smart utility segment, but with a growing level of activity in other vertical segments too, such as smart buildings, smart cities and smart agriculture.EXPLORE SMART UTILITIES BLOGS
