Over 80 Million LoRa Technology-enabled Devices to be Deployed by Early 2019

According to Semtech, there will be 80 million LoRa-enabled end nodes/devices deployed by early 2019 for various IoT Applications. With its simple, easy to deploy and flexible capabilities, LoRa Technology drives tomorrow’s distributed network solutions, today. Semtech also anticipates over 200,000 gateways will be deployed globally, which will provide the capacity to support significant network expansion of over one billion end nodes. Additionally, the number of long-range, low-power wide area networks based on the LoRaWAN open protocol is expected to exceed 70 countries.

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.

LoRa Technology has thousands of real-world use cases ranging from sustainable water leakage management to efficient soil irrigation to remotely monitoring flood levels during natural disasters. For example, by leveraging Apana’s water leak detection solution, Costco, a US based membership-only warehouse club, reduced water usage by 20% and saved 22% in their water bill. In a commercial potato farm, farmers utilized Sensoterra’s LoRa-based soil irrigation sensor to reduce water usage by 30%. Green Stream, a start-up focused on flood monitoring, deployed its solution across Virginia state to track flood levels in cities and towns in real-time. LoRa Technology enables fast-to-market IoT solutions, enabling innovation with support from a wide growing ecosystem of companies and developers.
