Semtech Corp. has teamed with Amazon Web Services Inc. to offer its long range, low power wide area network (LoRaWAN) protocol for Amazon’s managed cloud service.
Financial terms of the deal between the Camarillo semiconductor developer and the cloud computing subsidiary of Amazon.com Inc. in Seattle were not disclosed. 
AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN is a fully managed service that enables enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) developers to easily connect low power wireless devices over long range to AWS without developing or operating their own server.
Mohan Maheswaran, chief executive of Semtech, said that AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN will speed IoT application development by providing a plug-and-play experience for developers. 
“In addition, this collaboration with AWS enables enterprise customers using AWS to readily take advantage of the key benefits of LoRaWAN as the protocol continues to have massive adoption in the IoT industry in a variety of verticals ranging from smart home and communities to asset tracking,” Maheswaran said in a statement. 
Dirk Didascalou, vice president of IoT for Amazon Web Services, said that based on its collaboration with the Ventura County company, IoT developers will be able to leverage LoRaWAN to make the development process simpler and provide features in their apps such as long-range connectivity, the ability to build devices with low power consumption and increased security.
“We are delighted to be working with Semtech to accelerate our customers’ adoption of IoT and LoRaWAN allowing them to innovate faster and focus on the main job of creating business value,” Didascalou said in a statement. 
This deal marks the third such collaboration with Amazon for Semtech this year.
In late August, the company announced it would partner with AWS and TensorIoT Inc. in Irvine to simplify IoT solution development by offering Asset Tracking and Smart Building Kits that integrate Semtechs LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN protocol with AWS IoT services. 
And a month later it said it would make available its LoRa platform for the free Amazon Sidewalk network. The service allows Amazon customers to simplify new device setup, extend the low bandwidth working range of devices and help devices stay online and up-to-date even if they are outside the range of their home Wi-Fi network.
