According to a new press release, “Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, today announced a new open-source packet forwarder for Linux-based gateways that allows secure, resource-efficient data communication and remote management, critical features for Internet of Things (IoT) networks… ‘The full featured miniature gateway has great potential for bringing LoRa-based solutions to scale,’ said Wienke Giezeman, CEO and Co-Founder of The Things Industries. ‘The product lowers the total cost of ownership of LoRaWAN-based solutions, providing a disruptively low price point as it can be installed in only a few minutes by non-technical personnel. Removing the hassle and lowering the investment of the network allows businesses to focus on what really matters, an end-to-end IoT business solution’.”
The release goes on, “The implementation on the miniature gateway is further designed to enable easy-to-deploy gateways, ideal for generating network coverage in challenging indoor environments for smart building applications or using mobile gateways in asset tracking solutions. In addition, these solutions enable developers to easily create applications and test interoperability, while providing flexibility for different deployment models, business models and network deployment strategies for solutions providers and network operators. Cost effective indoor gateways are leading to mass adoption of LoRa Technology for smart home, building and asset tracking applications.”
