NEW DELHI – September 4, 2019 – 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), announced the program for its upcoming LoRaWAN Live! event taking place at the Pullman New Delhi Aerocity Hotel in New Delhi, India on October 17, 2019.
The event will focus on topics related to the theme of Smart Tech for a Sustainable Planet and will highlight deployments, applications and ROI that can leverage the LoRaWAN standard to conserve critical resources and improve quality of life. Key areas of focus during the event include how LoRaWAN is already supporting water conservation and quality, air quality, and a wide range of smart city applications from trash management to parking management, metering and building usage, as well as remote and hard-to-reach applications, and many more. In addition, customers in India will present their use cases discussing how LoRaWAN solves challenges of IoT deployments and talking to the benefits they have already experienced first-hand.
“There are many factors threatening quality of life for the world’s citizens,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “India and the Asia-Pacific region as a whole are facing issues, especially in areas where infrastructure may be lacking. Implementing IoT solutions using the LoRaWAN standard provides actionable data to conserve energy and resources, minimize waste, increase the planet’s sustainability and improve living standards.”
