Semtech Joins Board Of DLMS User Association

Posted by Rémi Demerlé on 06 July 2020

Following its origin 20 years ago, the Device Language Message Specification (DLMS) has become a universal standard for utilities. With a hundred million smart meters using DLMS installed worldwide, it is currently one of the most used smart metering standards today. On June 26, 2020, Semtech was approved by vote to join the board of the DLMS User Association during its recent general assembly.

DLMS Over LoRaWAN®: What It Is, and Why It’s Important

Posted by Rémi Demerlé on 23 June 2020

In a webinar hosted by the LoRa Alliance® and moderated by Semtech, the President of the DLMS (Device Language Message Specification) User Association, announced the future release of the first DLMS profile over the LoRaWAN® protocol. The DLMS User Association and the LoRa Alliance have been collaborating for more than two years to define a reliable and secure way to support the DLMS protocol over a LoRaWAN network. Having proven the feasibility via several demonstrations in 2018, continuing into subsequent years at European Utility Week 2019 and the Indian Smart Utility Week in 2020, this new profile is a key achievement of the liaison that will provide reliability and interoperability in future implementations of DLMS over LoRaWAN.

Introducing the LoRaWAN® & 5G Fact vs. Fiction Series

Posted by Remi Lorrain on 13 May 2020

We’re well into 2020, and the promise of 5G networking is continuing to lead conversations across the wireless industry. However, as 5G deployments increase, we also see a rise in alternative low power technologies to offer flexible, cost effective power and low bandwidth options for these so-called massive Internet of Things (IoT) deployments. In particular, market demand for solutions based on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol is continuing to increase, including those helping to combat the global COVID-19 outbreak. It has become clear that as 4G and 5G will target low latency and high throughput applications in the near future, LoRa and LoRaWAN-based applications will make up a larger portion of the massive IoT space, led by mobile operators, unlicensed spectrum operators and enterprises across private rollouts. The market is heading toward a Multi-Radio Access Network (Multi-RAN) strategy leveraging complementary standards, including 4G, 5G, LoRaWAN, and others such as Wi-Fi 6.

Systems Integrators are Key to Successful IoT Deployments

Posted by Roelof Koopmans on 29 April 2020

Enterprises are increasingly looking for ways to digitize processes and businesses. This trend started with the adoption of the Internet more than 20 years ago. First, eCommerce drove this trend, and later, Application Service Provisioning (ASP). Salesforce.com was one of the first companies to realize that large enterprises need customer relationship management (CRM) solutions for its mobile workforce that allow entering data remotely into one hosted instance instead of typical on-premise enterprise applications. With the emergence of larger Internet bandwidth, many new software solutions were provided from the Cloud, such as SAP and Microsoft Office applications. This digitization trend then extended to industrial environments with the strongly promoted vision of Industry 4.0. Enterprises realized that there is much to gain when combining the typical silos of IT and legacy OT (Operational Technology) with enormous potential to create more efficiency and quality in manufacturing processes.

Your LoRaWAN® Security Questions, Answered

Posted by Olivier Seller on 23 April 2020

The LoRaWAN® protocol is especially optimized for low power, wide area networks (LPWANs). It supports secure, bi-directional communication for IoT applications which scale to connect millions of potential devices. As security is a fundamental need in all IoT applications, the LoRaWAN protocol was designed with security in mind, with authentication and encryption built into the specification itself. However, a secure network protocol is only one half of the equation. Deploying a LoRaWAN-based application requires correct implementation of the protocol and a close adherence to recommended practices.
