Semtech Announces Open LoRaWAN Academy™ Registration for Enterprises and Developers
Free educational modules simplify and accelerate the development of LoRa®-based IoT applications
CAMARILLO, Calif., April 30, 2019 — Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced the open registration of the LoRaWAN Academy™ for everyone, from large enterprises to individual developers. The LoRaWAN Academy provides comprehensive, free educational modules for students, engineers, developers, and enterprises to develop Internet of Things (IoT) applications using LoRa®-based technologies.
“Developers are the most important part of any modern technology platform, and the LoRaWAN Academy is there to help them get up to speed on one of the fastest growing IoT-enabling technologies out there today, Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology). The LoRaWAN Academy will enable developers to get their LoRa-based solutions to market faster as well as simplify development,” said Steven Hegenderfer, Senior Director of the Developer Ecosystem in Semtech’s Wireless Sensing and Products Group. “We are working with the LoRaWAN®-based ecosystem to develop and drive material that is beneficial to the community. Providing completely free modules focused on building LoRa-based applications gives students, engineers, developers, and enterprises the jump-start they need to build robust, innovative IoT applications.”
The LoRaWAN Academy was first launched in late 2017 and targeted to universities. Since its initial inception, several universities from around the world implemented LoRaWAN Academy curriculum to prepare students for the IoT job market by training their students on developing LoRa-based solutions and the open LoRaWAN™ protocol. The program will now be available to anyone who is interested in building LoRa-based applications. The LoRaWAN Academy includes 10 modules of self-paced online classes that includes video lectures, supplemental reading materials and hands-on assignments.
“LoRa Technology is a leading technology and recognized as the de facto platform for developing IoT applications,” said Dr. S.A. Pasupathy, Head, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of Kumaraguru College of Technology (KCT). “With the LoRaWAN Academy available for anyone and free, this is a great opportunity for participants to learn and realize the return of investment of LoRa as well as having ability to accelerate their applications to the market and their career growth.”
