Podcast: Season 2 - Episode #4 - LoRa and LPWAN in IoT

In this latest podcast from Electronic Specifier Insights we will be discussing all things LoRa, the de facto technology for Internet of Things (IoT) networks. LoRa enables the smart IoT applications that help solve some of the biggest challenges facing our society today, from infrastructure efficiency to smart agriculture. We talk to Alistair Fulton, Vice President and General Manager of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group about the evolution of LoRa technology and the LoRaWAN protocol, and some of its potential applications.

We built this city (on LPWAN)

The interoperability offered with LPWAN networks enables the benefits of a truly smart city environment to be shared by all, writes Alistair Fulton, of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. Read more

Swarm Takes LoRa Sky-High

Swarm, a satellite start-up that uses CubeSats about the size of a grilled cheese sandwich to provide IoT coverage, has instead developed a satellite network specifically for IoT networks that would otherwise struggle to connect to the Internet. To do so, the company has adapted the popular IoT wireless standard LoRa, turning the terrestrial technology into a high-flying—and even longer-ranging—solution. Read more

LoRa Transmits to Satellites for Global Coverage

Swarm has built Semtech LoRaWAN technology into its Low Earth Orbit satellites that communicate with Internet of Things devices in remote areas where terrestrial networks are not available, such as at sea or in the desert. Read more

The Key to Smarter, More Connected Neighborhoods

Covid-19 has forced many people to embrace working from home, and that trend is likely here to stay. According to a recent survey from The National Association for Business Economics, only about 1 in 10 companies expect all employees to return to their pre-pandemic work arrangements (NBC News). With more employees working from home, there’s also been an increased demand for smart and user-friendly home technology. Emerging as an optimal technology of choice are low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), thanks to the flexibility and control they deliver as well as their ability to play nicely with other solutions, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Three Misconceptions about 5G

In late 2019, IDC projected the number of 5G connections to grow to 1.01 billion by 2023, representing a compound annual growth rate of 217.2 percent compared to the 2019-2023 forecast period. While it’s still unknown how the pandemic will impact those numbers, one thing is exact: 5G will play a major role in shaping how we interact with and use connected technologies. Read more

Visualize This: The IoT Landscape and a Map for the Future from Semtech

With a plethora of networking options becoming more readily available for the Internet of Things (IoT), selecting the most effective IoT network for a business use case can be strenuous and lead to wasted time and resources. The fragmented IoT landscape consists of a variety of networking technologies. Leading technologies such as LoRa®/LoRaWAN®, NB-IoT, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (BLE), and 5G dominate the industry; however, no single IoT technology has ubiquitous coverage and pertains to all vertical IoT use cases.
