Semtech and Brazil’s Anatel Deploy LoRa Technology Nationwide

LoRa 技术和 LoRaWAN 的实施将加强南美的物联网应用

CAMARILLO, Calif., Apr. 18, 2018 – Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Anatel, Brazil’s National Telecommunications Agency, has released new technical requirements for radio frequency (RF) communication devices, enabling the operation of LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) throughout Brazil.

According to Frost and Sullivan, by 2021, the Internet of Things (IoT) market for applications and hardware is set to generate $3.29 billion in Brazil. To support this rapid IoT growth, Brazil needs a strong, flexible infrastructure. Anatel reviewed comprehensive studies performed by two government agencies: The Department of Certifications and Numbering and the Department of Spectrum, Orbit and Broadcasting. In addition, Anatel collaborated with equipment manufacturers and held public hearings prior to its passage of resolution #14448 on December 4, 2017. The resolution provides international certification of devices that operate using chirp spread spectrum (CSS) modulation and low duty cycle such as LoRa Technology.

“This update is a very important milestone for Brazil and will expand the use of IoT across several vertical markets,” said Vitor Menezes, Superintendent of Anatel’s Licensing and Service Sourcing. “The resolution ensures technological neutrality and provides a modern regulatory framework for the wide dissemination of applications that will enhance productivity and make people’s lives better.”

Semtech 无线和传感产品事业部副总裁兼总经理 Marc Pegulu 表示:“拉美最大国家的电信监管机构最近采取的行动促进了 LoRaWAN™ 网络在巴西的立即推广,并有可能向整个大陆铺开。世界第八大经济体的公民将很快能享受到由 Semtech LoRa 技术提供支持的低功耗广域网 (LPWAN),各种令人兴奋的应用包括城市、建筑、供应链和物流、农业和计量。”
