Semtech, AWS & TensorIoT Collaborate on Simpler IoT Solutions
According to a recent announcement, Semtech is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and TensorIoT to simplify Internet of Things (IoT) solution development by offering Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits that integrate Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol with AWS IoT services.
Systems Integrators and Enterprises reportedly are now able to use AWS IoT services to accelerate the pilot-to-production lifecycle for their digital transformation applications, while leveraging services like AWS IoT Core, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, Amazon CloudFront, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon DynamoDB. The new Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits are the first vertical product offerings based on the LoRaWAN protocol built using AWS IoT Core and a serverless architecture, according to the release.
“LPWAN technologies represent a rapidly growing frontier of connectivity choices for IoT. Hundreds of millions of constrained devices are being connected to solve real world challenges in every vertical. These devices need to be able to communicate through multiple levels of concrete for smart structures or over miles of distance in remote telemetry cases while running on tiny batteries that last 10+ years,” said Michael MacKenzie, GM, IoT Connect and Control, Amazon Web Services. “With companies like Semtech, AWS IoT Core customers are delivering LPWAN solutions using LoRa without sacrificing scalability, availability or security.”
The partners said that the kits take advantage of scalable AWS infrastructure, and the Cloud dashboards are designed to be largely serverless. TensorIoT created the Cloud applications to connect the sensors to the AWS Services.
