LEXI develops the first LoRaWan universal IoT Gateway. The announcement is coming as the company is already shipping the gateway to customers.
The LoRaWan standard was developed for large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) communication, by the LoRa Alliance. It addresses the need to transmit signals across great distances, such as from one continent to another. The LoRaWan system also can send signals through barriers, such as concrete while running in a low-power mode.
The LoRaWan system meets the requirements of long battery life and to great scale at low deployment and overall low operating cost.
“Despite difficult global headwinds, the IoT universe continues to progress, and interoperability is more important than ever as organizations look to solve challenges with intelligence and efficiency,” said Scott Cahill CEO, of LEXI. “Hitting this milestone around shipping our universal gateway featuring the reach and resilience of LoRaWan demonstrates our commitment to helping businesses support smart technologies literally near and far, today and tomorrow, under the cover of an ecosystem that can handle it all.”
“The LoRa standard opens avenues of opportunity around smart living, working, and connecting across short, long and challenging ranges,” said John E. Osborne II, COO, LEXI who also serves as the Chairman Emeritus of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA) as well as the Vice Chairman of the Z-Wave Alliance. “Our customers are assured they are hitching their brand to a flexible, future-proof IoT platform that can cast ‘nets’ of varying size and power depending on their use case. Having this protocol on tap provides the flexibility to communicate broadly across homes, buildings, cities, logistics, agriculture and beyond.”
In January LEXI announced a suite of software and hardware that was meant to boost functionality for the enterprise customer base. These protocols and devices were meant to be deployed in Smart Home offerings or commercial IoT projects.
In addition to LoRaWan, the LEXCI gateway supports all major wireless protocols including Bluetooth, Zigbee, Z-Wave and Wi-Fi. The gateways are upgradable to Thread and the Matter standard.
