Semtech Participates in Cisco China 20 year Celebration as Internet of Things Ecosystem Partner
Semtech LoRa Technology Integrated into Cisco Industrial Router 910 IoT Gateway
Camarillo, California - August 25, 2014Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors announces that its Long Range (LoRa ™) technology is integrated in the new Cisco Industrial Router (IR) 910 Internet of Things (IoT) gateway. Semtech participated in the debut of the product at the Cisco China Symposium on Partnership and Innovation in celebration of 20 years in China on June 24‐25, at the China World Hotel in Beijing. A product demonstration was shown at the event featuring Smart Energy Metering solutions and Smart Parking solutions connecting to the IR910 IoT gateway using Semtech’s LoRa technology.
The Cisco IR910 is a Cisco Internet of Things (IoT) gateway with open platform design for IoT, smart city and industrial applications using wireless sensor technology. It is a ruggedized and modular gateway that easily deploys into any harsh environment to aggregate a wireless sensor data to the cloud. With its open platform and programmable environment, it not only enables different kinds of wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies to be integrated into this new platform, but also allows operators to host applications developed by third parties, in order to quickly build a total solution with partners to address IoT use cases in different industries.
Semtech has worked closely with Cisco in developing LoRa-based plug-in card for the Cisco IR910 IoT gateway to create an IoT ecosystem and platform to enable rapid growth and easy deployment for IoT sensors and end-devices.
“The value proposition of IoT relies on connecting multiple battery powered applications easily to the cloud. The majority of predicted IoT volumes and applications require a long-range, low-power wireless connectivity technology like LoRa,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of Wireless and Sensing Product Group at Semtech. “The Cisco gateway platform with LoRa will boost the deployment of IoT communication networks connecting sensors and inexpensive assets to the cloud.”
