Libelium adds LoRaWAN for Smart City IoT Connectivity

Libelium has released a new radio module bringing LoRa Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) wireless connectivity to Waspmote Internet of Things (IoT) sensors for applications that require low-energy and long-range data transmission on a large scale. The release has implications for development of smart city applications. Protocols known as Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are accelerating smart city and IoT deployments in Europe, Asia, and North America. Semtech’s open LoRaWAN, launched in March, standard is the backbone for many IoT uses that require bidirectional data communication and geo-location information. Libelium LoRaWAN sensors send information to base stations in the field, and have successfully completed tests on Kerlink LoRa base stations for 868 MHz bands operating in Europe, on the 900 MHz band for the U.S., and for the 433 MHz band connectivity used in China, Japan and Korea. "Waspmote sensor nodes are extremely energy efficient, intended for massive deployments in cities and the industrial IoT”, […]

Libelium has released a new radio module bringing LoRa Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) wireless connectivity to Waspmote Internet of Things (IoT) sensors for applications that require low-energy and long-range data transmission on a large scale.

Protocols known as Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are accelerating smart city and IoT deployments in Europe, Asia, and North America. Semtech’s open LoRaWAN, launched in March, standard is the backbone for many IoT uses that require bidirectional data communication and geo-location information. Libelium LoRaWAN sensors send information to base stations in the field, and have successfully completed tests on Kerlink LoRa base stations for 868 MHz bands operating in Europe, on the 900 MHz band for the U.S., and for the 433 MHz band connectivity used in China, Japan and Korea.

"Waspmote sensor nodes are extremely energy efficient, intended for massive deployments in cities and the industrial IoT”, said David Gascón, Libelium CTO and co-founder. “Our sensor platform is a perfect fit for purpose-built LoRaWAN, designed to carry complex data that characterizes Smart Cities applications, and thereby enable connectivity for the billions of devices and sensors predicted for the IoT”.

Libelium’s LoRaWAN radio module is fully integrated with the Waspmote sensor platform and devices offer network configuration for smart city applications to monitor environmental factors, noise pollution, water quality, as well as parking, and smart lighting applications. Paired with Libelium’s LoRaWAN module, Waspmote Plug & Sense received CE marking earlier this month, making it the first horizontal sensor platform certified for use in Europe.

Libelium also is a member of the LoRa Alliance, and is building an ecosystem with partners providing LoRaWAN solutions that are compatible with Waspmote. In addition to Kerlink gateway compatibility as a turnkey solution, Waspmote LoRaWAN sensors offer out-of-the-box connectivity with Actility, and network deployment and management capability with Loriot and Orbiwise backends.

In mid-September at Dreamforce, Libelium announced new Cloud integration options from software partners specialised in automotive systems, business process management, civil engineering, industrial applications, supervisory control and data systems (SCADA), and Smart City solutions, in the latest build-out of its wireless sensor network ecosystem.
At the time CTO David Gascón, said, “IoT project integration should be as flexible and easy as possible to nurture new development and incorporate legacy systems, and that is why we are giving customers access to such a wide selection of Cloud software solutions. Because it is modular and scalable, Waspmote is a complete hardware platform for the Internet of Things, capable of integrating any sensor, any communication protocol, and sending retrieved data to any Cloud system for analysis or storage”.
