Semtech's LoRa Technology, Suntront manage utilities in China

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that Suntront Technology, a smart meter solution company for heat, gas, water, and energy located in Zhengzhou City, China, has incorporated Semtech´s LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its smart gas and water meters for more advanced coverage and analytics, the company said.

Suntront´s smart gas and water metering solutions utilize LoRa Technology to remotely measure and adjust the levels of flow through piping by accessing a LoRaWANâ„¢ network and transmitting data via third-party applications.

A simple user management software service connects to Suntront solutions and provides the utility manager all necessary functions, including the ability to view usage trends and to monitor each meter remotely.

Utility managers then use the data to program the LoRa-enabled devices to automatically shut off or change valves when certain thresholds are met.

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.

In August 2011, Suntront had a successful IPO public listing on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and has since rapidly grown to become one of the largest manufacturers of smart meters in China. Read more at http://english.suntront.com/index.html.
