Semtech 和 Lacuna 从太空接收消息

Lacuna Space 通过卫星连接扩展 LoRaWAN 网络的全球覆盖范围

加利福尼亚州卡马里奥,2018 年 2 月 15 日 - Semtech Corporation(纳斯达克股票代码:SMTC)是行业领先的供应商,提供高性能模拟和混合信号半导体产品以及先进算法。公司和 Lacuna Space 共同宣布与主要行业领导者合作(包括欧洲航天局 (ESA) 和 Parametric GmbH),通过提供卫星连接来扩展 LoRaWAN™ 网络,以填补蜂窝覆盖范围之外的地面网关之间的空白,实现持续的全球覆盖。 

Lacuna Space 使用一组极近地轨道卫星接收由传感器发送的信息,这些传感器与地面上的 Semtech LoRa® 器件和无线射频技术(LoRa 技术)集成。在距地面约 500 公里处,卫星每 100 分钟一圈绕地球两极旋转,地球在它们下方旋转,卫星可覆盖全球。这些信号使用专为节省电池电量而设计的长距离广域网协议 LoRaWAN。卫星将消息存储一小段时间,直到它们通过地面站网络。数据被中继到地面网络上的应用或在基于 Web 的应用上查看。这非常适合需要更广泛、持续覆盖范围的任何物联网 (IoT) 器件,包括资产追踪和牲畜监测。

Lacuna Space 首席执行官 Rob Spurrett 说:“传感器什么都能测量,极限完全取决于人的想象力。Semtech 的 LoRa 技术和 LoRaWAN 开放协议支持其他网络无法企及的更大范围和覆盖,以开发未知的独特用例。我们的卫星演示填补了缺乏传统网络覆盖的农村地区和海洋的空白。”

Semtech 无线和传感产品事业部总监 Vivek Mohan 说:“Semtech 与技术合作伙伴密切合作,以实现无限量的物联网用例。随着 Lacuna 将 LoRaWAN 网络扩展到太空,更多的用户将能够为需要长距离和低功耗能力的资产开发全球解决方案,以构建更智慧的星球。”

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: Enables unprecedented battery lifetime of up to 10 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 open protocol, provided by the LoRa Alliance™, ensures interoperability among applications, IoT solution providers and telecom operators to speed adoption and deployment.
