- Semtech is working with LoRaWAN ecosystem partners to address the complexity of integrating end-to-end connectivity
- By developing new IoT solutions, it aims to make IoT adoption at scale easy and quick
Leading high-performance semiconductor, IoT systems and cloud connectivity service provider, Semtech Corporation recently announced its collaboration with partners including The Things Industries on new solutions that combine cellular and LoRaWAN, aimed at enabling more IoT use cases, faster adoption, easier integration and quicker time-to-market. The partners believe that combining the pros of LoRa devices with the high-speed and ubiquity connectivity of cellular will enable the integration of systems across the two technologies simplifying IoT deployments and providing expanded network coverage.
A provider of managed global LoRaWAN network infrastructure, The Things Industries announced last month that it had reached 1 million connected devices on its LoRaWAN network management infrastructure. The company takes it as a testimony to the reliability and scalability of The Things Stack. Quoting a global survey by Analysys Mason, the official note mentioned that the complexity of integrating end-to-end connectivity is slowing down IoT adoption at scale. It further said that Semtech is working with LoRaWAN ecosystem partners to address this issue by developing new IoT solutions.
VC & GM of the IoT Connected Services Group at Semtech, Ross Gray commented, “With this collaboration, we are bringing together the cellular and LoRaWAN ecosystems to provide LoRaWAN developers with the ubiquity of cellular connectivity, and all customers with best-in-class solutions for the Internet of Things.”
“Working closely with ecosystem partners such as The Things Industries, by combining cellular and LoRaWAN technologies, we are creating a more reliable and efficient network of IoT products and solutions that not only offer enhanced network capacity, scalability, and cost efficiency for our customers, but that also help to enable the transformation to a smarter, more sustainable planet”, Gray added further.
The CEO & co-founder of The Things Industries, Wienke Giezeman stated, “This partnership is a testament to our commitment to providing customers with a secure, predictable, and scalable IoT network infrastructure for their gateway backhauls utilizing LoRaWAN. Although our pure focus is providing a world-class global LoRaWAN network management infrastructure, our customers are actively using a wide range of connectivity options for their IoT solutions. Together with strong ecosystem partners like Semtech, we are pushing further integration between cellular and LoRa. We have an exciting roadmap of innovations on the edge between LoRa and cellular coming in 2023, solving concrete pain points around data availability, backhaul security and backhaul cost predictability. Exciting times ahead!”
