DLMS over LoRaWAN Demonstration in Semtech booth B.b70
A number of LoRa Alliance member companies will demonstrate Device Language Message Specification (DLMS) over a LoRaWAN™-based network in member company Semtech’s booth B.b70. DLMS is a key metering standard for utilities and using it over LoRaWAN will enable deployment of smart metering solutions by utilities worldwide.

Galeria Rooms 9 & 10
Representatives from the LoRa Alliance will be onsite to welcome visitors and answer questions about LoRaWAN for energy and utilities markets. Schedule a meeting through the EUW Visitor Portal. Stop by to secure a copy of ABI Research’s latest whitepaper on the utilities market.

Additionally, the LoRa Alliance will have a large member presence on the show floor, demonstrating LoRaWAN technology, products and solutions for the energy and utilities markets. Participating members include:
