Semtech’s LoRa Technology Featured in Orion System’s Utility Meters, Gateways and Smart Lighting Solutions

Reliable data transmission from LoRa-connected meters and
LoRa-enabled luminaire controllers create smarter cities

CAMARILLO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semtech
Corporation
 (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of high performance
analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms,
announced that Orion
System LLC
(OrionM2M), one of the first Kazakhstani developers and
manufacturers of LoRaWAN™-based wireless data transmission systems for
the Internet of Things (IoT), has integrated Semtech’s LoRa®
devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology)

into its smart metering solutions to monitor water, gas and electricity
usage data, as well as smart lighting solutions enabling the smooth
transition from conventional lighting.


“Metering solutions featuring Semtech’s LoRa Technology offer the
customer reliability and clear benefits unique to the technology,” said
Denis Fedorov, CEO and Co-Founder at OrionM2M. “Our meters leverage LoRa
Technology to eliminate human error in data collection with direct,
real-time uploads to the Cloud for analysis. These metering solutions
are highly scalable by the number of devices, meaning utility providers
can easily grow or expand their networks.”

OrionM2M’s smart meters, OrionMeter, and luminaire controllers,
OrionLighting, utilize embedded LoRa Technology to connect to the Cloud
via public LoRaWAN-based networks and OrionGateways. LoRa Technology is
uniquely suited to handle the complex challenges of smart metering,
smart city connectivity and smart lighting solutions, offering long
range connectivity up to 15km in open terrain, and deep indoor
penetration in cities. Reliable data transmission from the
LoRa-connected meters and luminaire controllers allow utility companies
access to consumer usage data and trends without needing to check each
device manually. Reliability reduces overhead cost and creates a more
efficient system of utility and city light management. OrionM2M’s
LoRa-powered solutions bring operations management and service
reliability, with up to 30% reduction of technical losses, higher SLA
and more accurate billing.

“Semtech’s LoRa Technology enables highly scalable network capabilities
and interoperable sensors making it the solution of choice for smart
metering applications,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT for Semtech’s
Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “OrionM2M’s IoT solutions increase
efficiencies in management and limit human error in order to improve
operations management. As more cities move toward smarter, sustainable
and reliable LoRa-based solutions for meters and lamps, companies such
as Orion are well positioned to be early leaders in this space.”
