LoRa-enabled devices regulate electricity use in Thai cities to maximize energy resources and reduce operational costs.
Semtech Corporation announce that Kiwi Technology Inc., a provider of comprehensive solutions and services for the Internet of Things (IoT), is dedicated to implementing Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) to maximize energy resources and reduce operational costs in smart cities.
Kiwi Technology collaborated with Precise Digital Economy (PDE), Thailand’s largest electricity facilities group, to increase production for IoT-enabled devices. The project is one the first of its kind for Southeast Asia, and is aimed at developing a smart city network of LoRa-based sensors to better regulate public utilities including electricity. Kiwi Technology has also distributed LoRa-based solutions in China, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, and many other countries.
Xinxin Li, chairman of Kiwi Technology, said:
“The collaboration between Kiwi and Precise Digital Economy (PDE) will enable the LoRa-based network to be more widely used in the Asian market, while further upgrading the industrial level of smart utilities.”
“Kiwi will also provide its hardware devices and complete IoT network solutions, including end-to-end applications, network routers, platforms, and a variety of applications, to create sustainable solutions.”
“Semtech’s LoRa Technology is becoming the technology of choice for building IoT applications as more cities look for IoT solutions to help reduce operational costs as well as provide better services for their communities,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “With its long-range, low-power, low cost, and easy to deploy capabilities, LoRa Technology plays an important role in creating a smarter planet.”
