Semtech's Smart Grid LoRa-based IoT Solution Helps Light Up the Streets

Ubicquia, a company devoted to offering mobile carriers, utility companies and light manufacturers cost-effective and modular solutions for deploying smart city services, has incorporated Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its Ubicell streetlight gateway module.

Streetlamps represent a large portion of a city’s allocated energy budget, in some cases reaching upwards of 40%. Studies of energy grids estimate that a smart grid Internet of Things (IoT) solution utilizing sensors, gateways and LED bulbs would provide large financial returns as well as valuable data. Ubicquia’s new LoRa-based gateway module allows the Ubicell streetlight to act as both a gateway and a client maintaining its core functionality that includes advanced light control, utility grade power metering, tilt and vibration sensing, connection to third party sensors and network integration.

Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power 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. IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.
