Semtech supports deployment of Birdz's new LoRaWAN based water metering network
Semtech announced that Birdz, a subsidiary of Nova Veolia and a global leader in optimized resource management, is continuing its use of LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology for future deployments of its smart meters. "Semtech's LoRa Technology is perfectly suited for smart water metering solutions due to its deep indoor and long range performance and low power consumption," said Xavier Mathieu, CEO at Birdz. "LoRa-based metering sensors can be deployed into existing infrastructure either outdoors or indoors and offer strong connectivity in dense city settings. Birdz offers the ability to integrate Internet of Things services and devices in the network, such as water leak detectors, fire hydrant monitors and water quality probes. By utilizing LoRaWAN(R)-based networks, we will provide better coverage and grow existing networks to connect even more devices to meet our customers' needs."
