Semtech will join Tata Communications and Hewlett Packard Enterprises to showcase IoT solutions at India Mobile Congress 2017.
Tata Communications and HPE will demonstrate their Command Center using the LoRaWAN protocol. The Command Center leverages HPE’s Universal IoT (UIoT) Platform to help connect devices, applications and other IoT solutions over Tata Communications and HPE’s LoRaWAN network.
The LoRaWAN network is expected to expand to 60 cities by the end of 2017 and the rest of India by December 2018.
“Our partnership with Semtech and HPE has resulted into a cohesive, resilient and highly-secure network to deploy IoT applications in India. We have successfully conducted 35 proof-of-concept application trials on our IoT network. Overall, we aim to have around 50 million different IoT devices in the market by 2022,” said VS Shridhar, Senior Vice-President and Head of Internet of Things (IoT), Tata Communications.
Nigel Upton, General Manager, IoT, Communications & Media Solutions, HPE said, “The HPE and Tata Communications Command Center featuring the LoRaWAN network is designed to put citizens’ needs first and address key challenges across smart buildings, campuses, utilities, fleet management, security, healthcare services and more, head on.”
“The use of Semtech’s unique LoRa devices and wireless RF technology (LoRa Technology) and the global LoRaWAN standard already enable IoT solutions throughout India and drive great benefits for businesses, urban development, agriculture, and overall quality of life,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President and General Manager of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.
