LoRaWAN® has become a leading wireless protocol for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications that require long range wireless connectivity in combination with ultra-low power consumption. Many massive IoT applications are only economically viable when the batteries in the sensors, trackers or other devices can last years , in some cases even more than 10 years.
In this video, Olivier Gimenez introduces the LoRa Edge™ LR1110 chip and provides a demonstration of how easy it is to locate and track assets with this latest chip from Semtech, in conjunction with both The Things Network’s LoRaWAN® network and Semtech’s LoRa Cloud™ Services.
In this video from The Things Conference, I explain how to use LoRa® and LoRaWAN® to achieve Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals and requirements. Environmental requirements include tasks such as monitoring and managing greenhouse gasses and biodiversity. Social goals often include issues related to human rights and animal welfare. Governance goals include management structures, employee safety, and related topics.
The European radio regulations can be ambiguous when it comes to certifying and understanding LoRaWAN® network operation. Here we take a look at how an end device built with a LoRa® chipset should be certified for regulatory compliance, as well as the duty-cycle capacity we can expect from an end device deployed in a practical LoRaWAN network.
With the proliferation of LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® standard, finding the sensor you want amongst the various IoT marketplaces can be a dizzying minefield. To make it easier, we have introduced Pinpoint - a new service for connecting suppliers to opportunities.
The LoRa® Corecell Full-Duplex gateway reference design is a highly integrated indoor and outdoor gateway solution designed specifically for the U.S.s 915MHz ISM band. This full-duplex gateway design makes it possible to expand network capacity for outdoor and indoor applications, such as smart metering, smart offices, smart buildings, and smart factories. Moreover, it increases the capacity of networks with fewer gateways, thus providing cost savings for end customers when compared to cellular charges.
Sylvain Montagny, Associate Professor at Savoie Mont Blanc University, is passionate about the Internet of Things. So passionate, in fact, that he teaches a course at the university where students learn to create their own Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol.
In an effort to provide more great content and guidance to developers, the Semtech’s LoRa developer ecosystem team is proud to launch our new Learning Center!The Learning Center consists of three main pillars for developers:
An increasingly important aspect of operating a LoRaWAN network in a shared ISM band is avoiding interference from existing devices operating in the same band, and minimizing the interference caused to other users of the spectrum. To help network operators achieve this, Semtech is introducing two new features to the SX1302 LoRa Corecell gateway reference design: Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) and Spectral Scan.
LoRa is now one of the most popular and fastest-growing IoT technologies. It is widely adopted around the world as it is affordable, secure and efficient for large-scale deployments. As a result, Semtech reported more than 1.2 million gateways deployed worldwide and over 180 million cumulative end-nodes at the end of 2020 (source: Semtech).
