Semtech 宣布推出 LoRa Cloud™ 地理定位
The new service simplifies the integration of a geolocation service for all LoRaWAN™-based devices
CAMARILLO, Calif., Mar. 13, 2019 — 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。公司宣布推出 LoRa Cloud™ 地理定位，这是一种基于云的全新地理定位服务，它与 LoRaWAN™ 协议和大多数网络服务器兼容。该地理定位服务可以轻松集成，从而提供成本较低，且经过性能优化的解决方案，并且，它也是 Semtech 率先推出用于支持物联网应用开发的云服务产品。
Semtech 无线和传感产品事业部 LoRa Cloud™ 服务高级总监 Richard Lansdowne 表示：“Semtech 基于云的新地理定位服务可通过云 API 调用访问，将方便所有基于 LoRaWAN 的器件轻松使用地理定位服务。Semtech 的总体战略是简化物联网 (IoT) 解决方案的开发，并支持这些解决方案利用我们的 LoRa 器件和无线射频技术独特的低功耗、长距离和灵活部署优势。为此，我们将提供多种完全支持的新型商用 LoRa Cloud 服务，最先推出的就是地理定位服务。LoRa Cloud 地理定位提供免费使用层，可供任何人快速轻松地试用该服务。它还提供一种简单且经济高效的基于消费的定价模型。”
在过去的一年中，Semtech 试推行了一项免费的云地理定位服务，数百名用户积极评价该服务易用且性能优秀。我们今年与限定的合作伙伴对 LoRa Cloud 地理定位进行了 beta 测试，预计在下个季度，将有更多用户将新服务集成到其平台中。基于云的新地理定位服务的设计初衷就是支持部署选项的灵活性，让任何物联网器件都可使用地理定位服务。
“We were impressed with the ease of integration, the response times and the accuracy of the trial service,” said Domenico Arpaia, CEO at Orbiwise. “It took us less than a day to migrate to the new service and it was great to see that Semtech had made it faster and more accurate, delivering a true enterprise-grade experience, in line with our customers’ expectation. The flexibility to deploy the service to match the security and privacy requirements of our customers in different regions will allow us to include this service as part of our standard offering.”
“Our LoRaWAN-based network servers were the first to integrate Semtech’s trial geolocation service and our community of over 64,000 users have really appreciated it,” said Wienke Giezeman, founder & CEO of The Things Industries and The Things Network Foundation. “We were delighted to see Semtech commercialize the service, enabling us to include it in our offering as a simple bolt-on option. Semtech’s vision in providing critical services to support the silicon is really going to meet the needs of the market and since the service can be trialed for free, indefinitely, it is 100% aligned with our vision of open, free community services complemented by a seamless transition route to a full commercial solution.”
Semtech 正在招募早期客户，预计将于 2019 年夏季通过新的 LoRa Cloud 服务门户网站面向注册用户全面发售。将提供不同层次的定价。
