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.
The third edition of the makezurich.ch Hackathon For A Better City, an event that brought together the local maker community and the city administration, took place between 23-31 October in Zurich, Switzerland. The event—which, due to COVID-19 restrictions was held in a hybrid modality: both virtual and in-person—attracted roughly 100 participants working on 17 projects across seven different challenges.
Semtech’s LoRa® developer ecosystem team is always listening to our developers to better understand your wants and needs. We work to create content and tools that help you in your efforts to bring Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to life with LoRa chipsets and the open LoRaWAN® protocol.
What do you get when you combine the LoRaWAN® protocol with Wi-Fi? A cost-effective approach to an Internet of Things (IoT) network deployment that offers significant opportunity for Wi-Fi providers and IoT developers. By employing a network mutualization scheme combining the LoRaWAN protocol and Wi-Fi connectivity, Wi-Fi providers can expand their business to provide coverage for both broadband applications and massive IoT deployments that leverage the (free) unlicensed radio spectrum.
