Laird Connectivity has released a new flexible multi-wireless gateway for bridging LoRaWAN devices to the cloud. Named Sentrius RG191 + LTE, it is a LoRaWAN-enabled gateway that comes with Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Cellular solution packed in a single unit.
Whether it is IoT, M2M, or Industry 4.0, LoRa is one of the most popular wireless communication medium. LoRa is getting popular day by day and there are many LoRaWAN networks all around. It consumes very low power and can communicate over a long-range.
The IoT industries introduced lots of technologies, but none of them was ideal for IoT devices, as they needed to transmit information to a long distance without using much power until the LoRa technology was introduced.
Wilhelmsen, a global maritime industry group along with The Things Industries (TTI) leverages Semtech’s LoRa devices to deliver cost-effective, robust and proven IoT solutions to the maritime shipping industry.
There are number of communication technologies available for interaction between IoT devices today, and the most popular ones are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. But the problem with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology is high power consumption.
