Semtech supports network deployment in Tasmania

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Definium Technologies (Definium) has deployed a new enterprise-grade statewide network in Tasmania based on Semtech´s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol, the company said.

The network facilitates Tasmania´s transition to a laboratory for testing new technologies and allowing start-ups, businesses, communities, and students to experiment as well as receive the benefits of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity from anywhere in-state.

Definium´s approach to IoT networking addresses blackspots head-on, allowing interested parties to extend coverage by installing one of Definium´s Nexus 8 industrial LoRaWAN-based gateways, which has been deployed by Hobart International Airport to provide coverage for its LoRa-enabled sensors. Extending the network improves coverage for all Tasmanians and allows the network to reach traditionally unavailable parts of the island. Definium has committed over 100 of its Nexus 8 gateways to the continuing roll-out of the network, enhancing connectivity. The statewide network officially launched on July 25, 2019.

Definium Technologies (Definium) designs, develops, and manufactures a wide range of purpose-built devices to solve real-world problems. Definium creates IoT gateways and devices for all purposes, building automation systems hardware, electric fence monitors, fuel injection controllers, audio systems, remote controls for lifts, and more.
