Semtech Corporation SMTC recently announced that the company’s Low power, high Range (LoRa) devices technology has been deployed by Green Scale Alchemy (“GSA”) into its IoT-based pool management platform.

GSA’s platform helps to increase logistical efficiency. The integration of LoRaWAN protocol will optimize remote management of pallets in real time and thereby provide accurate inventory data over the long range. This will enable managers to increase the efficiency of their logistical processes and reduce costs.

The LoRa-based GSA platform provides reliable information about the status of the individual pallet. This data enables managers to track assets with ease throughout the supply chain. In addition, the new solution that offers better logistics management allows organizations to move assets only when necessary, thus keeping the movement of employees restricted.

The LoRa Technology enables long-range connectivity of IoT devices and aids in connecting sensors to the cloud. Its long-range performance and low power consumption requirement enhance overall performance. Moreover, this technology helps in real-time communication of data and analytics to enhance efficiency, as well as productivity.

Semtech is witnessing growing strategic alliance and contracts, thanks to cost-efficient abilities of the LoRa technology in creating as well as deploying IoT solutions.

Consequently, the move is likely to boost the adoption rate of the company’s LoRa technology in the United States, which in turn will drive the top line.
