Fremont, Calif., Aug. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN® standard for the internet of things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), today announced the program for the upcoming LoRaWAN Live! Tokyo. The event will focus on sharing LoRaWAN solutions for critical global challenges, including food supply, manufacturing automation, safe work environments, sustainability, resource conservation, and business optimization. Additionally, leading LoRaWAN experts will address technical topics including the value of certification and becoming a LoRaWAN Accredited Professional, regulatory compliance and RF regulations, and how to develop end-to-end solutions.

“The Asia Pacific region is a strong manufacturing hub as well as having a large aging population, both of which are driving it to demand flexible and affordable digital solutions and LoRaWAN continues to be the answer,” said Donna Moore, CEO and chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “We’re bringing a strong, solutions-based program to Tokyo this October to help drive LoRaWAN business and support the global LoRaWAN community as it works to solve some of the planet’s most pressing challenges. We’re excited to come to Tokyo, update the market on our considerable growth over the past few years and share our collective learnings as an ecosystem to support continued scaling of massive LoRaWAN deployments. I also want to personally thank the LoRa Alliance member companies who are sponsoring the event, Browan Communications, Kiwi Technology, MultiTech, RAKwireless, Semtech, STMicroelectronics, and Yokogawa.”

LoRaWAN Live! is open to the public and offers the strongest opportunity of the year to learn about LoRaWAN from groundbreaking keynotes, panel discussions, live demonstrations, a poster session and innovations marketplace. The event will share the latest LoRaWAN developments, help end users find solutions, learn about device certification, how to become a LoRaWAN Accredited Professional, and generate opportunities to grow your business. LoRaWAN Live! offers attendees the opportunity to network with global IoT leaders, CTOs, CIOs, CEOs, heads of innovation and technologists, developers, system integrators, OEMs, end-users, enterprises and start-ups. The event features a dynamic program that will address how LoRaWAN is transforming the buildings, retail, cities, industry, manufacturing, agriculture, and utilities markets in Asia and around the world.

Smart Buildings

  • Browan will present their efforts to make IoT and LoRaWAN accessible to all, regardless of tech skills. With MerryIoT sensors and solutions, they're bringing easy-to-use smart solutions to people's lives, making the benefits of IoT hassle-free for everyone.
  • Kerlink will present a series of key use cases deployed in Japan, including smart building, smart factory, air quality, work safety, predictive maintenance for railways, temperature/humidity monitoring for warehouses, and cold-chain monitoring.
  • Kiwi Technology will present key LoRaWAN solutions from Japan, Taiwan and ASEAN deployments. The first is unbroken cold chain temperature monitoring in food retail and the medical industry, and the second is indoor air quality/temperature/humidity/CO2 for smart building and WBGT applications.

Smart Cities

  • CropWatch will share how it is using LoRaWAN for disaster detection and prevention from cities to farms with its approach to lightning rod maintenance, response systems and service delivery, and the benefits to repair companies, utility providers and the public at large.
  • ICFOSS will showcase how LoRaWAN is enabling a panchayat’s sustainability efforts with local community participation in Kerala, India, leading to monitoring of environment, agriculture, animal husbandry, water and power management.
