Advantech has announced that it has joined the LoRa Alliance, which is committed to developing a new industrial standard to empower the Internet of Things. Advantech will provide the LoRa gateway and sensor node devices based on the M2.COM open standard for Industry 4.0 and Smart City applications.
“The wide area coverage and low power consumption makes LoRaWAN the ideal technology for opportunities in large area industrial IoT applications. With the LoRa Alliance, we will complete our wireless product offerings and enable more IoT applications in Industry 4.0 and smart city scenarios,” said Allan Yang, CTO of Advantech.
”By adopting LoRa Technology, Advantech can address the increasing demands for long-range connectivity and low-power IoT applications.” said Miller Chang, VP of Advantech Embedded-IoT Group. “Advantech commits to deliver a series of high-performance IoT gateways, Edge Intelligence Servers (EIS) and M2.COM sensor devices with LoRa solutions to market.”
IoT applications require technology integration and cross-industry collaboration. Advantech will keep collaborating with strategic IP/silicon, sensor, software and system integrator partners to provide all the essential components for developing, verifying, integrating and building trusted IoT solutions that achieve faster time-to market solutions.
The LoRa Alliance is an open, non-profit association that has grown to more than 400 members since its inception in March 2015, becoming one of the largest and fastest growing alliances in the technology sector. Its members are closely collaborating and sharing their experience to promote the LoRaWAN protocol as the leading open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT LPWA connectivity. With the technical flexibility to address multiple IoT applications, both static and mobile, and a certification program to guarantee interoperability, the LoRaWAN is already being deployed globally by major mobile network operators and is anticipated to widely expand in 2016.
