CAMARILLO, Calif., May 31, 2017 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, announced it will be participating as a sponsor at the 8th LoRa Alliance™ All Members Meeting (AMM) from June 12-14 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Semtech, a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, is sponsoring a networking reception for LoRa Alliance members, and Mohan Maheswaran, President and Chief Executive Officer at Semtech, will be addressing members, global carriers, suppliers, and partners throughout the event.
Comcast, the newest LoRa Alliance corporate member, is headquartered in Philadelphia and will serve as host-sponsor of the 8th AMM. Comcast’s machineQ service is currently using Semtech’s globally-proven LoRa® wireless radio frequency technology in trial deployments in the machineQ IoT network in Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco.
Semtech, Comcast and other LoRa Alliance members are collaborating to drive the global success of making LoRaWAN™ the de facto IoT standard, for global, carrier-grade low-power wide area networks (LPWANs) that provides long-range, low-power connectivity between sensors and wireless network base stations. LoRaWAN is an open standard protocol which enables IoT innovation through multiple factors including a sensor certification program, certified secure interoperability, a variety of open business models, and a strong global ecosystem. The 8th AMM will feature a full 3-day program for members, as well as an Open House that will be open to the public on Wednesday, June 14. These activities include LoRaWAN 101 hands-on training, informational use-case sessions, a Marketplace exhibition, and the machineQ Smart City Summit, where Philadelphia City leaders and technologists will come together with LoRa Alliance members to explore how LoRaWAN technology can contribute to Smart City initiatives. Additional activities include a Comcast-organized Smart City Hackathon and a gathering of more than 25 global carriers.
“With more than 50 countries deploying LoRaWAN networks, the use of LoRa devices and wireless RF technology is quickly growing as IoT becomes more prevalent in society,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President and General Manager, Wireless and Sensing Products Group at Semtech. “Our work with Comcast and the LoRa Alliance will help further advance LoRaWAN as it begins to solve real-world problems.”
