Launching LoRa Cloud™ Locator Service to Evaluate Ultra-Low Power Asset Tracking With LoRa Edge™

Posted by Karthik Ranjan on 21 June 2022

The Need for Continuous Asset Tracking

Of the many complexities along the global supply chain and daily logistics operations, asset tracking is arguably the most challenging. Disruptions and subsequent capital loss not only affect goods transported worldwide, but also containers and vehicles used for shipment. On a more local scale, retail stores and shop owners are challenged in keeping track of their assets and supply at all times throughout the day for reasons varying from theft prevention to inventory management.

LoRa®: Delivering Internet of Things Capabilities Worldwide

Posted by Remi Lorrain on 07 February 2022

Estimates suggest that only 10% of the world’s surface has terrestrial connectivity. To establish a truly connected planet with ubiquitous coverage for massive Internet of Things (IoT) deployments, we need to complement terrestrial networks with satellite connectivity, expanding coverage for demanding verticals. The LoRa Alliance® recently upgraded its guidelines to include Long Range Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (LR-FHSS) data rates for the LoRaWAN® standard. The LR-FHSS features significantly increase network capacity and reduce interference, facilitating new deployment opportunities across the globe.

Semtech’s LoRa Edge™ Indoor & Outdoor Geolocation Platform Goes Global

Posted by Sree Durbha on 20 January 2022

Location is a vital component of the Internet of Things (IoT), encompassing the ability of things to sense and communicate their geographic position. Location data helps organize, track and account for the billions of Internet-connected devices based on sensors and other location-centric elements within them. The ability to capture location data forms the basis of location-based services and starts with the physical radio frequency (RF) technologies that interact with the world around them.

Several technologies, such as GPS, LoRa® and others, can provide outdoor location information. However, these existing technologies are not optimized for IoT asset tracking use cases due to their increased power requirements which require access to frequent charging as well as inability to work indoors. Reducing power consumption on devices fundamentally requires a reduction of compute on device, with IoT this can be accomplished by partitioning the workload between the device and harnessing the power of the Cloud. For precise indoor location, where GPS has no tangible reach, and to enable continuous location detection or tracking, indoor positioning systems (IPS) technologies such as Wi-Fi come into play.

IoTが資産管理ソリューションを形成

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 22 July 2021



Asset tracking is one of the most widely deployed Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to Juniper Research, there will be a 27% increase in asset tracking usage over the next five years, growing from 90 million in 2020 to 114 million by 2025. With this increase, IoT solutions need to enable the efficient and reliable monitoring of assets as they move through the production cycle, and often throughout large warehouses and campuses. Having access to reliable location data is increasingly valuable to production managers, reducing the potential for assets to be misplaced or lost entirely during their journey.

LoRa® Brings Geolocation to Every IoT Device

Posted by Marc Pégulu on 14 July 2021

Wouldn’t it be nice to have geolocation as a native service on any type of connected device? Wouldn’t it be even better if there were a solution with up to 10 times the extended battery life of existing Cellular solutions? How about allowing customers to pay for their geolocation services only when needed? The future of geolocation has arrived.

ジオロケーションアプリケーションの迅速な開発を実現するLoRa Edge™トラッカーリファレンスデザイン

Posted by Sree Durbha on 26 October 2020

Asset tracking is one of the most widely deployed applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT’s economic impact on factories, retail settings, work sites, offices, and homes could total as much as $6.3 trillion by 2025, according to McKinsey Global. A variety of industries, including home and building, healthcare, agriculture, and food services in addition to the industrial and logistics markets, are investing in smarter technologies to replace siloed legacy systems with automated asset management solutions. Many existing geolocation applications are power hungry and require multiple devices, software and services from multiple vendors, resulting in increased complexity and cost.
