“Semtech’s new Cloud-based geolocation service, accessed by a Cloud API call, will simplify and democratize access to geolocation for all LoRaWAN-based devices,” said Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group’s Senior Director of LoRa Cloud services, Richard Lansdowne. “This is the first of a new breed of fully supported commercial LoRa Cloud services from Semtech that we will be providing as part of our overall strategy to simplify the development of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, which leverage the unique low power, long range and flexible deployment benefits of our LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology. With a free usage tier to allow anyone to trial the service rapidly and easily, LoRa Cloud Geolocation also offers a simple and cost-effective consumption-based pricing model.”
