Semtech, LoRa Alliance members demonstrate DLMS over LoRaWAN-based network

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, has announced its demonstration of Device Language Message Specification (DLMS) over a LoRaWANâ„¢-based network in Vienna, Austria, the company said.

The demonstration is in collaboration with the Euridis Association and contributions from multiple partners including Actility, Cahors, Semtech, Sicame, and Vientech.

With constant urbanization and demand for greater efficiency, utility companies need to augment capacity while developing new solutions to optimize management of their existing assets. Recently, utility companies are leveraging the use of standards to receive greater benefit from digitization. DLMS is a well-established standard for utilities and used for devices with session-oriented communications. Devices using Semtech´s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) were modified to send DLMS messages via the LoRaWAN open standard demonstrating the value for utilities in mutualizing network connectivity.

Semtech´s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide. IoT networks based on the LoRaWANâ„¢ specification have been deployed in 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Allianceâ„¢, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.

EURIDIS members are manufacturers, utilities and software companies. Several technical committees have been created since 2003 in order to manage the evolution of the standard characteristics and write a list of conformance tests to verify that each product is fully in respect with the protocol. This testing procedure will be offered to any member of the association. Since June 2018, Euridis has created a specific committee to work on LoRaWANâ„¢.
