Semtech Corporation is partnering with IBM Research and Microchip to demonstrate the most powerful and advanced technology for Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) at Electronica 2014 by deploying a live LoRa low power wide area network (LPWAN) over a majority of the Munich area.
Semtech is also promoting its broader partner ecosystem of end-node modules, gateways/concentrators, and network controller solutions for private networks at the show by giving away 1,000 IoT demonstration end-nodes to select clients by the ecosystem participants. The end-node modules will connect to the Munich IoT wireless network set up for Electronica so potential customers can evaluate the range, coverage, and potential of the LoRa technology.
The LoRa technology has a range greater than cellular at a fraction of power and has the capacity to connect millions of nodes into a network deployment. LoRa partner solutions simplify and accelerate development time while minimizing development cost allowing developers to focus on their end application and services rather than network design and deployment. The partner solutions can be used as turn-key solutions for IoT nationwide deployments by telecom and service providers or utilized as a hosted network solution for local private deployments.
