machineQ: LoRaWAN Service from Comcast
Oct 10 2016
Comcast today announced machineQ, a new business trial venture that will use Semtech Corporation’s (NASDAQ: SMTC) LoRa Wireless Radio Frequency Technology to deploy network trials in Philadelphia and San Francisco later this year.
"The decision by Comcast to complement its existing infrastructure with LoRa Technology will enable connected devices, servers and software components to communicate seamlessly and securely on its new LoRaWAN™-based IoT platform," said Mohan Maheswaran, Semtech’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "Semtech is committed to working with Comcast to make LPWAN networks broadly available in the United States. We believe this will foster innovation by enterprises for new IoT solutions that allows us all to benefit from the advantages of our emerging connected world."
+ If the initial trials are successful, Comcast intends to commercially deploy LoRaWAN networks and LoRa-related services across its markets, with the goal of completing commercial deployments within the next 18 to 30 months.
