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.
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.
As you probably know, LoRa Edge™ is an ultra-low power platform that integrates a long range LoRa® transceiver, multi-constellation scanner, and passive Wi-Fi AP MAC address scanner targeting GNSS asset management applications. Additionally, the LoRa Edge LR1110 solution uses Semtech’s LoRa Cloud™ geolocation capabilities to significantly reduce power consumption by determining asset location in a Cloud-based solver.
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:
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).
This week Semtech and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a collaborative effort, resulting in a new offering from AWS that integrates LoRaWAN® network connectivity with AWS IoT Core: AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN. A new way for customers to connect and manage wireless devices via the Amazon Cloud, AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN builds on the open LoRaWAN networking specification, which, in turn, is based on Semtech’s LoRa® chipsets.
