“Because Semtech’s LoRa technology is well suited for long-haul, low-power, wide-coverage applications, it has opened up new Internet of Things (IoT) use cases for Swarm in areas such as logistics, agriculture, connected cars and energy. Said Ben Longmier, CTO and co-founder of Swarm. “We are excited to be partnering with Semtech using LoRa to help us provide affordable global connectivity for IoT devices on an unprecedented scale. “
Swarm integrates LoRa on very high frequency (VHF) frequencies for uplink and downlink to its satellites from the ground. The network is commercially operational, with 72 commercial satellites providing 100% global coverage. Swarm plans to deploy a total of 150 commercial satellites by the end of 2021, which should reduce latency times to less than a minute. The user modems, which are built into IoT devices, communicate with satellites, enabling reliable data transfer anywhere on Earth, anytime.
“Semtech and Swarm are working together to pursue IoT business applications that require less data-intensive communications and fill gaps in the existing satellite market,” said Marc Pegulu, vice president of IoT product marketing for the wireless products group. wire and sensing from Semtech. “The combination of our technologies helps provide reliable and affordable connectivity that keeps sensors, equipment and assets connected on land and at sea.”
