Semtech’s Successful Collaboration With the Swiss Post Results in Universal Postal Service
LoRa® devices and LoRaWAN® standard integrated into “Order Pens” enable on-demand postal services to thousands of Swiss citizens
CAMARILLO, Calif., Jul. 22, 2021 – 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。公司宣布与瑞士国家邮政服务瑞士邮政合作，成功部署瑞士邮政的“Order Pen”。该设备利用 Semtech 的 LoRa® 器件和 LoRaWAN® 标准，为瑞士公民和企业提供环球邮政服务。通过集成 LoRa，瑞士邮政优化了其在全国的邮政服务订购流程，以更好地为社区服务。
瑞士邮政物联网负责人 Thomas Koch 说：“物联网 (IoT) 持续革新全球消费者的日常生活，Order Pen 展示了这种物联网技术、LoRa 器件和 LoRaWAN 标准的全部潜力，并能极大地优化社区服务。Order Pen 易于部署，并有效地改善了瑞士公民和企业的生活。”
随着快递公司的竞争格局不断扩大，客户对服务的期望也在不断发展，要求更快的交付时间、更低的价格和卓越的服务质量。为此，瑞士邮政在其瑞士技术合作伙伴 Miromico 的支持下，实施了一项为期四年的“简单却系统化”的业务战略，以应对这种以客户为中心的按需模式，并向瑞士没有邮局的偏远村庄投放 Order Pen。此外，为了与每位读者建立联系，瑞士邮政选择与 Swisscom 和 Actility 合作，使用瑞士唯一的全国性 LoRaWAN 网络。这也被称为低功耗网络 (LPN)，覆盖了 97% 的瑞士人口。
In a span of four years, the deployment of the Order Pens utilizing LoRa devices and LoRaWAN standard ultimately benefited Swiss citizens and businesses. Direct results of the solution included:
- On-demand ordering of postal services such as pickup of a parcel or registered letter
- Easier accessibility for postal services for those without a smartphone or computer due to the easy-to-use Order Pen
- Up to 10 years of battery power operation
- No need for a SIM card, as the readers operate on Swisscom’s low power network in Switzerland utilizing the LoRaWAN standard
- User-friendly web application providing instant listings of each order and the ability to manage devices used, departments, access rights, supplier relationships, order quantities, and delivery times
Analyst firm ABI Research estimates that total non-cellular low power wide area (LPWA) network connections in 2026 are expected to reach 1.3 billion with LoRa forecasted to comprise more than half of all non-cellular LPWA connections. LoRaWAN has emerged as the leading standard for the broadest range of outdoor and indoor connected applications. Devices integrated with LoRa and the LoRaWAN standard are differentiated by an open ecosystem, strong security specifications, bi-directional communication, optimization for mobility, and scalability for capacity.
Semtech 的无线和传感产品事业部战略联盟解决方案合作伙伴高级总监 Roelof Koopmans 表示：“我们与瑞士邮政合作为所有瑞士公民和企业提供环球邮政服务，这表明 LoRa 器件具有无与伦比的价值，能够让世界变得更智能。瑞士邮政 Order Pen 大获成功，这表明 Semtech 的 LoRa 器件已成为物联网事实上的无线平台。”
