The LoRa Alliance, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN protocol for the Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), previewed its activities at the upcoming Mobile World Congress Barcelona event taking place February 25-28, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The LoRa Alliance’s presence will showcase the breadth of LoRaWAN™ network coverage, certified devices and a massive number of member deployments, and CEO and Chairwoman Donna Moore will present onstage during the 5G Smart Cities session on February 27 at 11:30 pm in Hall 4 Auditorium 2.
“Simply put, LoRaWAN is the defacto industry standard for low power, wide area networking,” said Moore. “Mobile World Congress is a valuable opportunity to bring our broad global ecosystem together and highlight the massive deployments that are happening now. We look forward to informing the greater mobile industry about the benefits of LoRaWAN and how it fits into the 5G landscape.”
The LoRa Alliance booth will feature gold sponsors Elsys AB, Orbiwise and Semtech alongside silver sponsors Digital Matter, Haxiot, Multitech, Omniimpex and Ubicquia as well as a LoRaWAN Live Demo Zone with end-to-end demos of real-world applications that are in deployment now across many of our key verticals.
Additionally, The LoRa Alliance is pleased to invite show attendees to our Networking Reception on Tuesday, February 26, from 17:00 – 18:30. Guests will have the opportunity to meet members of our ecosystem, discover the latest advances being made in LoRAWAN technology and explore the demonstration areas showcasing end-use applications and solutions.
Sponsor demonstrations on the booth include:
ELSYS will showcase a complete set of LoRaWAN sensors needed for professional building management. This includes sensors for room presence, desk presence, temperature, humidity and CO2 sensors for indoor climate, noise level sensors and door sensor.
Orbiwise will live demo the latest major release, 6.0, of its industry-leading OrbiWANT LoRaWAN Network Server and its OrbiLINK LoRaWAN Pico-Gateway, Noise Pollution Sensor and LoRaWAN Solutions from a number of our global partners.
Semtech will demonstrate the low-power consumption performances of a LoRaWAN device in real conditions, such as smart metering or a tracking device, shown in real-life conditions.
Digital Matter will demo and exhibit a wide range of innovative robust IP67 rated hardware that is using LoRaWAN technology. This includes GPS tracking devices that are either battery powered or hard wired into a power source.
Haxiot will showcase an industrial liquid pressure sensor and tank level sensor LoRaWAN solution with edge intelligence that leverages the Haxiot X-ON edge computing solution. The demo shows the industrial use of a portable liquid pressure pump that is connected to an industrial pressure sensor, which generates pressure change data and triggers an alert.
Multitech will demonstrate Lens, the world’s first toolset for secure, distributed, scalable LoRaWAN enterprise networks. Lens enables resource-efficient deployment and management of local LoRaWAN networks at scale and works with leading MultiTech IoT gateways and any LoRaWAN-compliant end devices.
UBICQUIA will demonstrate how its LoRaWAN-based, fully integrated streetlight IoT router enables advanced lighting control, utility-grade metering, environmental monitoring, and video/audio applications, leveraging other network protocols connectivity for gigabit speeds and public Wi-Fi small cell services.
Plus, the live demo zone will feature members including NNNco, Bosch, Invisible Systems, Thingenix and TalkPool running live demos of LoRaWAN being deployed in applications around the world and across a range of vertical markets.―CT Bureau
