LoRa Workshop at Avnet Silica, Norway

Avnet Silica in co-operation with Indesmatech and Semtech invites you to a ½ day LoRa workshop in close co-operation with chip- and module manufacturers as well as infrastructure providers and system integrators.


Get hands-on experience on this new sub 1-GHz Long Range technology running on the ISM bands, perfectly suited for IoT and M2M applications with typically 15 km transmission range. The network can be established with your own gateways, or you can connect to a public network that will be available from infrastructure providers.


During the workshop you will see and operate LoRa devices on node and gateway level and get knowledge on the complete infrastructure and solution.


Partners for the workshop are:

•  Indesmatech

•  Semtech
