Semtech Corporation, a leading supplier of high performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors and advanced algorithms, announced that a comprehensive intelligent water service provider, Hangzhou Water Meter Co. (HWM), Ltd. has incorporated Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol into its smart water metering solutions enabling public utility companies to improve efficiency and reduce management costs.

“Semtech’s LoRa devices is an ideal IoT platform for smarter metering with its easy to deploy, long range and flexible capabilities,” said Jian Liu, General Manager of Hangzhou Water Meter Co., Ltd. “Our LoRa-based water metering solution allows our water supply customers to reduce operating costs, improve the efficiency of meter reading management and save water resources.”

By the end of 2019, HWM’s LoRa-based water metering solution will be deployed in 72 residential districts in Hangzhou. It is expected to deploy 80 gateway devices and tens of thousands of intelligent water meter terminals. Currently, hundreds of thousands of LoRa-based water metering solutions by HWM have been deployed in Zhejiang, Anhui, Hunan, Sichuan, and other regions of China to help water supply customers transform to intelligent public utilities management.

Based on the LoRaWAN protocol and architecture, HWM’s remote water metering solution combines IoT smart metering and gateways. The LoRa-enabled water meter can access a LoRaWAN-based network to communicate, data transmit and provide alerts. With the low power consumption, long range, high success rate LoRaWAN-based water meter solution, HWM helps end customers reduce costs and achieve smart, high efficiency public utilities management.

“Semtech’s LoRa devices is the DNA (devices, networks and applications) of IoT and its long range, low power capabilities are advantages in the utilities industries,” said Marc Pegulu, Vice President of IoT for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.

“LoRa is an established leader in the smart metering industry, creating scalable, secure and reliable solutions to help our customers deliver more efficient metering solutions to reduce waste and utility spending.”
