1. 10 Things about LoRaWAN & NB-IoT

LoRaWAN_10ThingsInfographic_thumb_600We compare two LPWAN networks, LoRaWAN® with NB-IoT, across a number of key factors: the ecosystem, spectrum, deployment status and options, protocol, transmit and receive current, data rates, link budget, and mobility. Read it now!

2. Understanding the LoRaWAN Capacity Whitepaper

Semtech-Blog-metering-whitepaperThe "Real-World LoRaWAN Network Capacity for Electrical Metering Applications" white paper details a study which was conducted to measure the productivity and efficiency of LoRa® gateways. The study involved deploying approximately 10,000 LoRa EMeters in and around property in a small German town. These meters were programmed to send and receive packets of data at intervals throughout the day. At the end of the study, it was discovered that the “average” gateway was capable of sending and receiving more than the anticipated amount of data per day. Interested?

3. LoRa-enabled Smart Home Security Systems Serve as Deterrent to Burglars

Semtech-Blog-securityThis blog discussed how LoRa Technology’s key features, i.e. long range and low power, provide the ideal solution for a home security system. LoRa Technology can connect to the network from deep within a home or building, and can be incorporated into many different devices in a home with little effort. Doors, windows, motion sensors, and intercoms can be incorporated with LoRa Technology to connect them all to the Cloud. From here, data transmitted by the LoRa sensors can be analyzed for abnormalities, and in the event one is detected, alarms can be triggered in the home as well as pushed via third party application to homeowners’ smartphones or other connected device. Learn more in the blog.
