Semtech (NASDAQ: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductor technology, observes that the LoRaWAN protocol, developed and managed by the LoRa Alliance, is providing new applications of IoT connectivity for new smart industrial control operations.

Utilizing the protocol for its IoT connectivity, Semtech notes that in response Cisco has developed new IoT sensor systems to enhance visibility into physical spaces for IT and operational technology (OT) environments. 

As noted by Semtech: 

Designed to wirelessly connect battery-operated ‘things’ to the Internet, the LoRaWAN protocol is the widely adopted low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol for IoT applications across the globe. Gateways leveraging the LoRaWAN protocol enable geolocation capabilities to track and monitor assets and their locations to improve logistics, prevent theft, and enhance operational efficiency. Common uses include indoor and outdoor asset tracking, monitoring temperature and humidity, freezer and cold room, ingress/egress and occupancy, water leak detection, lighting conditions, and equipment vibration and movement. 

The company adds that Cisco's Industrial Asset Vision platform is a simple and secure solution for remote asset management, equipped with a new, cloud-based dashboard to better monitor and manage the condition of assets and facilities. The all-in-one platform deploys in minutes using a simple QR code to onboard sensors and devices; requiring little technical expertise, reducing the burden on IT or the need for expensive service contracts.  

Integral to the solution, Semtech notes that its LoRa device-to-cloud platform is a globally adopted long range, low power chipscale technology for IoT applications, enabling the rapid development and deployment of ultra-low power, cost efficient and long range IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.  

“Designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the Internet, LoRaWAN is the low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol of choice for IoT applications across the globe,” comments Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT Product Marketing for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Cisco’s enterprise customers can now benefit from IoT connectivity to quickly connect with and easily monitor high-value assets and environmental conditions in their facilities and warehouses so they can become safer and more efficient.”
