Hanbit, a provider of end-to-end automation solutions in gas, water and electricity metering, has incorporated Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) into its smart metering solutions.
“Hanbit’s LoRa-based utility metering solutions enable maximum accuracy in utility management with real-time tracking,” said Phani Varanasi, CEO at Hanbit. “Semtech’s LoRa Technology allows flexible installation in both commercial and residential industries, providing extensive range of up to 30 miles, to increase energy efficiencies throughout an entire city.”
Hanbit’s LoRa-based solutions allow real-time consumption, status and diagnostic data from water systems, which transfers to a central database for billing and analysis. With LoRa Technology’s long range and low power capabilities, Hanbit’s smart metering solutions decrease maintenance frequency and offer quick deployment. The LoRa-based products are available throughout India.
“Hanbit equips utility providers and consumers with accurate and reliable smart sensor solutions for improved efficiency,” said Vivek Mohan, Director of IoT, Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “With metering deployments globally, Semtech’s LoRa Technology is positioned to be the ideal platform of choice in the utility industry to develop comprehensive, unique applications to better serve their populations.”
Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology is a widely adopted long-range, low-power solution for IoT that gives telecom companies, IoT application makers and system integrators the feature set necessary to deploy low-cost, interoperable IoT networks, gateways, sensors, module products, and IoT services worldwide.
IoT networks based on the LoRaWAN specification have been deployed in over 100 countries and Semtech is a founding member of the LoRa Alliance, the fastest growing IoT Alliance for Low Power Wide Area Network applications.
