Semtech’s LoRa technology adopted by Kiwi Technology to bring progress to smart cities in Thailand

Semtech Corp., supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced on Thursday that Kiwi Technology Inc., vendor of comprehensive solutions and services for the Internet of Things (IoT), is dedicated to implementing Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) to maximize energy resources and reduce operational costs in smart cities.

Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.

IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 45 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.

Kiwi Technology collaborated with Precise Digital Economy (PDE), Thailand’s largest electricity facilities group, to increase production for IoT-enabled devices. The project is one the first of its kind for Southeast Asia, and is aimed at developing a smart city network of LoRa-based sensors to better regulate public utilities including electricity. Kiwi Technology has also distributed LoRa-based solutions in China, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, and many other countries.

“The collaboration between Kiwi and Precise Digital Economy (PDE) will enable the LoRa-based network to be more widely used in the Asian market, while further upgrading the industrial level of smart utilities,” said Xinxin Li, chairman of Kiwi Technology. “Kiwi will also provide its hardware devices and complete IoT network solutions, including end-to-end applications, network routers, platforms, and a variety of applications, to create sustainable solutions.”

“Semtech’s LoRa Technology is becoming the technology of choice for building IoT applications as more cities look for IoT solutions to help reduce operational costs as well as provide better services for their communities,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “With its long-range, low-power, low cost, and easy to deploy capabilities, LoRa Technology plays an important role in creating a smarter planet.”
