Melbourne, Australia – April 13, 2015: Libelium has added long-range wireless coverage to Waspmote and Plug and Sense! sensor nodes, by integrating Semtech’s LoRa™ RF technology in a new module-on-a-chip embedded radio design for Smart Cities and Internet of Things (IoT) deployments. The new LoRa radio technology offers extreme range even through buildings and urban environments.
Waspmote sensor nodes are designed to deploy by the thousands, connecting any sensor using any communication protocol to any Cloud system. The LoRa communication protocol extends wireless connectivity so that Waspmote sensors can transmit data at distances of several miles, through buildings, and over 20 miles in open spaces. With LoRa’s high sensitivity of 138dBm, the Waspmote long-range module can receive data packets transmitted through difficult conditions and long links, reducing infrastructure costs for city uses.
The flexibility and availability of more than 80 sensors for Libelium Waspmote combined with the benefits of LoRa long range and extended battery lifetime creates an attractive solution for Smart Cities and IoT applications.
M2M Connectivity is the exclusive Libelium distributor in Australia and New Zealand. Distribution executive, Javier Gabas from the Libelium head office in Spain, will be on M2M Connectivity’s CeBIT stand C26 – the M2M/IoT Zone – to provide information on the new LoRa technology and Libelium’s network sensor platforms for IoT.
