What Is LoRa®?

LoRa is the de facto wireless platform of Internet of Things (IoT). Semtech's LoRa chipsets connect sensors to the Cloud and enable real-time communication of data and analytics that can be utilized to enhance efficiency and productivity. LoRa devices enable smart IoT applications that solve some of the biggest challenges facing our planet: energy management, natural resource reduction, pollution control, and infrastructure efficiency.

What Is LoRaWAN®?

The LoRaWAN open specification is a low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) standard based on Semtech’s LoRa devices, leveraging the unlicensed radio spectrum in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The LoRa Alliance®, a nonprofit association and fast growing technology alliance, drives the standardization and global harmonization of the LoRaWAN standard. LoRaWAN is recognized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as an LPWAN standard.

LoRaWAN fills the technology gap of cellular and Wi-Fi/BLE based networks that require either high bandwidth or high power, or have a limited range or inability to penetrate deep indoor environments.

Why LoRa?

Semtech's LoRa devices, LoRa Basics™ software building blocks, LoRa Cloud™ software solutions, and the LoRaWAN standard offer an efficient, flexible and economical solution to real-world problems in rural and indoor use cases, where Cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) networks are ineffective. 

LoRa use cases for vertical markets
