New LoRa Edge LR1120 Enables Satellite-based Networks and Simplifies Terrestrial Network Interoperability

LoRa Edge LR1120

Semtech Corporation has extended its LoRa Edge device-to-Cloud geolocation platform with the new LoRa Edge LR1120 that is designed for direct satellite-connected Internet of Things (IoT) applications in supply chain management and logistics with seamless low power geolocation on a global scale. With LoRa Edge LR1120, intercontinental logistics companies can leverage highly integrated, ultra-low power trackers with enhanced interoperability, more versatile connectivity for a simpler operation and global mobility across multiple regulatory regions.

LoRa Edge LR1120 provides multi band LoRa and Long Range - Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (LR-FHSS) communication over sub-GHz and 2.4GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) bands along with licensed S-Band for satellites. It integrates a Cloud-native multi-constellation global navigation satellite system (GNSS) scanner and a passive Wi-Fi MAC address scanner, both leveraging Semtech’s LoRa Cloud services.

 

Key Features of LoRa Edge LR1120

  • Multi-band LoRa capability (sub-GHz, 2.4GHz and licensed S-band for satellite) and multi-technology geolocation using GNSS for outdoor and Wi-Fi for indoor, as well as areas where satellite coverage is poor
  • LoRa Cloud geolocation solver, which transfers the location processing workload from the device to the Cloud, making ‘deploy once’ battery life possible
  • Supported by GPS and BeiDou constellations
  • Hardware crypto engine for increased security

Additionally, the possibility to offer a low power and low-cost sensor with satellite connectivity unlocks a multitude of use cases in infrastructure monitoring, agriculture and environmental monitoring that require deployment in remote areas, which tend to be very capital intensive.
