Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that EasyLinkin, a high-tech enterprise specializing in the research and development of low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies, has incorporated Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its IoT smart metering solutions to improve facility management.
LoRa-enabled smart meters from EasyLinkin monitor utility usage rates in real-time to provide facilities more visibility to reduce operating costs. EasyLinkin’s LoRa-based products are easy to install on existing meters and are currently being deployed across China in both public and private LoRaWAN™ networks. Utility companies are able to monitor utility usage in real-time to reduce operational costs and conserve natural resources.
“Our customers are able to analyze their usage through real-time data collected by our smart metering solutions to reduce operational costs,” said Kun Xu, Co-Founder & Executive President at EasyLinkin. “This was enabled and would not be possible without Semtech’s LoRa Technology, which provides the ideal IoT solution for utility monitoring and management. The easy deployment and flexibility of LoRa Technology enables consistent data transmission in either a private or public network.”
“With an increased emphasis on sustainability, there’s an absolute need for IoT solutions, like Semtech’s LoRa Technology, to solve real-world environmental challenges,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT, Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Integrating LoRa Technology into EasyLinkin’s metering devices provides an IoT solution that reduces operational costs like maintenance and allows an inside look into utility consumption, letting consumers change their usage accordingly.”
