Semtech’s LoRa Technology Drives the IoT Evolution at Mobile World Congress Shanghai
LoRa Technology leveraged for long range, low power Internet of Things (IoT) applications to create a better future
CAMARILLO, Calif., June 13, 2018 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced its demonstrations of LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) at Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWC Shanghai), from June 27-29, 2018, in Shanghai at the LoRa Alliance™ booth (SNIEC Hall N1, Stand N1.B65).
This year’s MWC Shanghai, which expects to attract more than 60,000 attendees from 100+ countries, is focused on “Creating a Better Future.” With its long range, low battery power and low cost, Semtech’s LoRa Technology demonstrations will illustrate why the platform is becoming the de facto IoT solution for multiple vertical markets, including metering, homes, buildings, and cities. LoRa-based platforms have saved up to 25% in water leak prevention in commercial buildings, approximately 30% in energy cost in smart homes and about 20% in cost savings for gas metering.
“Semtech’s LoRa Technology has had great momentum in China with strong, strategic partnerships, including Alibaba Cloud. The adoption of LoRa Technology has grown exponentially in Asia, with LoRaWAN networks in 40 Chinese cities and increased deployments including smart meters, parking sensors and air-quality monitoring sensors,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President and General Manager of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “LoRa Technology is the IoT platform of choice for public and private networks and is already widely used across more than 100 countries, creating a smarter planet.”
