Semtech Demonstrates DLMS over a LoRaWAN-based Network at European Utility Week

At the European Utility Week (EUW) 2018, Semtech demonstrated a Device Language Message Specification (DLMS) over a LoRaWAN-based network. The demonstration was done in collaboration with the Euridis Association and contributions from multiple partners including Actility, Cahors, Semtech, Sicame, and Vientech.

With constant urbanization and demand for greater efficiency, utility companies need to augment capacity while developing new solutions to optimize management of their existing assets. Recently, utility companies are leveraging the use of standards to receive greater benefit from digitization. DLMS is a well-established standard for utilities and used for devices with session-oriented communications. Devices using Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) were modified to send DLMS messages via the LoRaWAN open standard demonstrating the value for utilities in mutualizing network connectivity.

Over the years, DLMS has rapidly been adopted by metering manufacturers and is a key standard for utilities. By using DLMS over LoRaWAN, utility companies will be ready to deploy proven simple smart metering solutions that can be used in combination with other IoT applications whilst reducing their operational costs. The new innovation being driven by the LoRaWAN-based ecosystem will enable more utility metering companies to take advantage of the LoRaWAN open standard’s unique combination of low power, flexible deployment options and savings compared to other wireless connectivity solutions.
