The agreement will help the AWS global developer community build asset tracking and monitoring solutions and connect Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices, using LoRa Edge, to the Cloud.
AWS IoT Core Device Location is globally available across seven regions and is available for immediate use with AWS IoT Core. The LoRa Edge device-to-Cloud solution from Semtech is versatile and a low power software-defined platform provides indoor and outdoor geolocation capability together with a multi-band LoRa and LR-FHSS transceiver that supports global terrestrial and satellite LoRaWAN networks.
This scalable, low power, and cost-effective technology is intended IoT applications such as industrial, building, home, agriculture, transportation, and logistics markets.
Key customer benefits of AWS IoT Core Device Location include:
- Simplified development experience to create asset tracking solutions using LoRa Edge devices and AWS, resulting in reduced time to market for these solutions
- LoRa Edge platform enables ultra-low-power devices, which can last several years on a single battery
- Single console experience with AWS IoT Core, including LoRa Cloud
- Regional availability across seven regions
“We are excited about the opportunities created with the integration of LoRa Cloud geolocation services into the AWS IoT Core platform. This greatly expands the availability of LoRa Cloud geolocation services across the globe, making it easier for developers to build asset tracking and monitoring solutions to connect and enable new IoT solutions,” said Mohan Maheswaran, president and CEO, Semtech. “Delivering seamless and reliable LoRaWAN connectivity at scale is critical in developing a smarter, more sustainable and connected planet.”
“The complexity of working with multiple vendors to create and deploy asset management geolocation services has traditionally been a challenging and time-consuming process for IoT solution developers,” added Yasser Alsaied, vice president of IoT at AWS. “Today, our customers can combine the capabilities of LoRa Edge with an array of AWS services through a single console and billing experience. This gives our AWS global ecosystem the ability to build and connect track-and-trace solutions very quickly and very easily.”
