Last January, the world’s fastest-growing non-profit technology organization, the LoRa Alliance, announces its prioritization of the IoT market to market to low-power wide-area (LPWA) network solutions.
The proclamation comes after the organization’s identification of increasing demand for low-power, lightweight connections in rural areas and over water!
ABI Research predicted that most LPWA network connections will be on LoRa® through 2024!
The deployments for LoRaWAN® have significantly increased in 2019, with smart metering claiming the greatest boost by 2023!
Semtech, author and owner of the LoRa technology, recently completed its first-phase testing of satellite-connected LoRa communications with Lacuna Space. Lacuna aims to further the reach of LoRaWAN-based networks even to the highly remote regions that need long-range, long-power, and flexible connectivity.
The LoRa Alliance refreshed its board of directors recently and expanded its LoRaWAN certification program!
One of the recent members of the said alliance because of this diversification is the leading IoT solutions provider, RAKwireless!
With the collaborative efforts of the members of the LoRa Alliance and beyond, we can expect great things soon to benefit the whole world. Learn more about this recent development here: LoRa Takes Over 75% of IoT Market, Shoots For The Stars With New Space Project
