  • 5G - The Slicing and Dicing of IoT?

    The new buzzword in the wireless industry is 5G and it is often used in relation to the Internet of Things (IoT). This has contributed to some confusion as IoT has been broadly gaining traction in the “things” market leveraging a wide range of connectivity options, including Cellular, LoRaWAN® and Wi-Fi, a pattern that looks sure to continue. With 5G expected to rapidly become a reality through the deployment of initial networks by Cellular operators around the globe, we believe clear positioning is required to allow enterprises and consumers to drive the IoT market to its full potential.

  • BlueRiver on Display with Christie SDVoE-enabled Technology

    Christie’s performance-driven Terra™ display solutions are being used to operate immersive, multi-screen events around the world. The lineup of Terra controllers, transmitters and receivers integrate Semtech’s BlueRiver™ technology for Software Defined Video Over Ethernet (SDVoE™) to display video content in real-time, artifact-free and with zero-frame latency.

  • 5G and LoRaWAN Co-Exist to Serve the Internet of Things

    There is little doubt that 5G will play a major role in our society’s future. As a veteran of the telecommunications industry who has developed generations of hardware and software, I have a deep appreciation for what 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is doing with 5G, and am excited to see how it will change lives in the years to come.

  • Semtech Delivers the Tools that LoRa-based IoT Developers Need

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a truly massive phenomenon. Revenue numbers from market projections for IoT are staggering - Market Watch predicts that IoT will be worth $2.488 trillion by 2022.

  • BlueRiver for SDVoE: Disrupting The Pro AV Market

    In this Q&A with Don Shaver, Semtech’s Vice President, Video Products, we explore the pivotal role Semtech’s BlueRiver™ platform for Software Defined Video over Ethernet (SDVoE™) plays in transforming the Pro AV industry.

  • Facility Managers Find Value in LoRa Technology at NFMT

    Last week I attended the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference and Exhibition (NFMT) in Baltimore, Maryland. I was quite impressed with the amount of interest generated by the solutions for facilities management being demonstrated at the show based on Semtech’s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology). The LoRa Alliance™ had a strong presence with demonstrations by MachineQ, Microshare, Tektelic, and Semtech. In addition to the LoRa Alliance exhibitors, Haxiot was also on hand in its own booth to demonstrate its solutions. Facilities management is an industry that typically operates on tight margins and is therefore very interested in any solution that can save on supply usage, maintenance or efficient routing of resources.

  • Why Broadcast Standards Don’t Matter in Pro AV

    The Pro AV market continues to show strong growth with AV over IP and the move to replace traditional matrix switch technology with standard, off the shelf Ethernet infrastructure set to revolutionize the industry across multiple applications and verticals. By contrast, the broadcast equipment market has shown single-digit growth for a number of years as broadcasters are slow to adopt IP-based technology and the new workflows required to meet the changing demands of content consumers. Uncertainty remains around the cost and complexity of the switch from SDI-based systems to all-IP switching, along with slow adoption of over-the-air standards for 4K video.
