After more than a year of lockdown, schools are now reopening and faced with the difficult challenge of ensuring a safe learning environment, or risk returning to remote learning.
预计在 2021 年，大多数国家/地区都会放松或解除因当前新冠疫情实施的封锁，许多企业的员工将返回工作岗位。这就要求公司改善设施的卫生状况并实施保护措施，以免员工感染病毒。许多企业，尤其是员工近距离协作的工厂、配送中心和物流仓库，也将不得不重新审视标准作业程序。
In August, 2020, Semtech announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and TensorIoT on a new series of Internet of Things (IoT) kits leveraging LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol. The kits accelerate the deployment of smarter, more efficient solutions for Enterprises and Systems Integrators by making use of LoRaWAN connectivity with the smart integration of AWS’s leading IoT services. The end goal of the kits is to shorten the production lifecycle of simple, effective IoT applications for Smart Building and Asset Tracking use cases through the use of LoRa devices’ proven advantages, AWS IoT Core and a flexible serverless architecture.
Semtech recently announced the availability of two new Internet of Things (IoT) kits designed to accelerate the development of smarter, more efficient solutions for Enterprises and Systems Integrators. The Smart Building and Asset Tracking Kits are the result of collaboration between Semtech and IoT ecosystem leaders, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and TensorIoT, and offer the smart integration of Semtech’s LoRa® devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol with AWS’s leading IoT services. Systems Integrators and Enterprises can now leverage AWS IoT and key native services to accelerate the production lifecycle of their applications. The kits are the first vertical market product offerings based on the LoRaWAN protocol that utilize AWS IoT Core and a serverless architecture.
In 2018, the U.S. made up 35 percent of the global smart home market, which is expected to grow five-fold to a $192 billion global market by 2023. The same data from IHS Markit shows that over a third (38 percent) of U.S. households already have at least one smart device. Consumers in the market for smart home devices are faced with an overwhelmingly wide variety of device options and technology platforms. Among those offering the longest range and lowest power consumption are YoLink LoRa®-based devices offered by YoSmart. Smart home sensors leveraging Semtech’s LoRa devices are only a few clicks away, available now on Amazon in the U.S.
Another CES is in the books, and as usual, it was a blur of visionary concepts demonstrated alongside very useful, near-term technology. While much has already been written about CES 2020, I will focus my impressions on the connectivity technology choices for the smart home and building. While the market continues to evolve clever ways to present, manipulate and use data to make our lives and businesses simpler and more efficient, feeding the appetite of the big data engine presents many challenges in the smart building connectivity market.
IHS Markit 预测，到 2023 年，所有低功耗广域网 (LPWAN) 将有多达 43% 基于 Semtech 的 LoRa® 器件和 LoRaWAN® 协议*。截至 2019 年 12 月，全球已部署超过五十万个支持 LoRa 的网关，支持 1.35 亿个基于 LoRa 的终端节点**。随着物联网 (IoT) 解决方案的全球采用以及支持 LoRa 的应用的市场份额不断增长，将越来越难以找到无法从任何互联器件中受益的业务部门。新的 LoRa 用例定期发布，全球 LoRaWAN 网络部署（公共或私有）的数量不断增加，似乎对这些应用的唯一限制就是开发人员和系统集成商解决当今现实世界业务挑战的想象力。
Real estate is the second highest operating expense for employers behind salaries. At the same time, the workforce is rapidly transitioning into an “anytime, anywhere” work ethos. Despite these realities, little has changed in the way office space is utilized. As a result, very expensive office space is going unused. Worse still, without adequate data to prove otherwise, facility managers often request additional budget to lease even more space due to the belief that they are out of room in their existing facilities.
