Semtech to Exhibit with LoRaWAN™ Ecosystem at Mobile World Congress

Next-generation IoT applications enabled by LoRa® to be displayed in the LoRa Alliance™ IoT Pavilion

Camarillo, California - February 9, 2017 -

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq:SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced plans to showcase its award-winning LoRa® devices and Wireless RF Technology at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on Feb. 27-March 2 (Hall 8, Stand D3).

Together with companies from the LoRa Alliance™, Semtech will demonstrate its LoRa Technology and the broad range of innovative, next-generation IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and services it enables.

“The LoRaWAN specification, based on Semtech’s LoRa Technology, gives LoRa Alliance members the feature set necessary to deploy interoperable long-range, cost-effective IoT infrastructure and solutions,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of Wireless Products for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “The standardized ecosystem of telecom companies, IoT application makers, and system integrators within the LoRa Alliance continues to grow, creating the framework to scale IoT and bring the associated benefits of a smart planet to fruition.”

Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, a group of more than 400 companies committed to driving and enhancing the LoRaWAN specification to ensure interoperability and scalability of LPWANs and IoT applications. Through its work with member companies and IoT industry groups, the LoRa Alliance is making LoRaWAN the standard for LPWANs focused on low-power, long-range IoT applications. To date, there are LoRaWAN public and private networks in more than 50 countries.

The show is open Feb. 27 to March 2 and is located at two Barcelona, Spain venues: Fira Gran Via and Fira Montjuic. The LoRa Alliance IoT Pavilion is at the Fira Gran Via. Contact to schedule a meeting with a Semtech representative.

About LoRa® Wireless RF Technology

Semtech LoRa Technology is a widely adopted low-power, long-range solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers, and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
