Semtech to Highlight LoRa Technology�s Geolocation Feature in Mobile World Live Webinar

Panel discussion focuses on use cases for smart city, logistics and supply chain management, and asset tracking

Semtech Corporation(Nasdaq:SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced its LoRa® Devices and Wireless RF Technology will headline a webinar hosted by Mobile World Live, a leading B2B mobile industry news site, on Feb. 20 at 4 p.m. GMT. Semtech and two other Internet of Things (IoT) influencers will participate in a panel discussion focused on LoRa Technology’s native geolocation feature and its use cases.

The webinar will include an overview of Semtech’s LoRa Wireless RF Technology for the IoT, an analysis of its geolocation feature, and a discussion about its various applications, such as smart city, logistics and supply chain management, and asset tracking.

LoRa Technology features native, GPS-free geolocation capability using a hybrid mix of time stamping techniques to determine the location of sensors relative to their base stations. This allows LoRa RF Technology to offer added functionality for a variety of applications without requiring extra processing capability, increased footprint, more battery power, or expensive add-ons to the sensors.

David Pringle, a writer and editor for Mobile World Live focused on the telecoms, media and technology sectors, will moderate the panel. Representing Semtech is Richard Lansdowne, Senior Director of Network System Solutions from the Company’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.

Registration to attend the webinar is now open. The webinar will be archived after the initial broadcast and be available for review on

Key Features of LoRa Technology:
– Long Range: A single base station using LoRa Technology enables deep penetration capability for dense urban environments and indoor coverage, while also providing the ability to connect to sensors more than 15-30 miles away in rural areas.
– Low Power: The LoRaWAN protocol was developed specifically for low power and enables unprecedented battery lifetime of up to 20 years depending on the application.
– Geolocation: Enables tracking applications without GPS or additional power consumption.
– Low Cost: LoRa Technology reduces up front infrastructure investments and operating costs, as well as end-node sensor costs.
– Open Standard: The LoRaWAN protocol ensures interoperability among applications, IoT solution providers and telecom operators to speed adoption and deployment.
