Spain’s Island City, Mallorca to Use LoRa Technology to Enable Smart City Applications

IOTLABS, a company providing Internet of Things-as-a-service has incorporated Semtech’s LoRa Technology into its island-wide LoRaWAN-based network in Mallorca, Spain. The citizens of Mallorca, according to IOTLABS, will utilize the network based on the LoRaWAN protocol for a number of smarter applications such as real time water level and air quality monitoring. In the near future, the company expects to add smart parking, traffic, and pollution monitoring solutions using LoRa-based sensors.

IOTLABS’ LoRa-based solution enables real time connectivity, monitoring, and data analytics. This allows the municipality to better provide more complex smart solutions like smart metering for utilities, and precision agriculture solutions for the island’s olive industry. LoRa-based solutions can easily be implemented into preexisting networks with minimal deployment cost, and solutions are scalable by number of nodes and gateways; this allows networks to grow from town, to countryside, and eventually entire islands.

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.
