Wednesday 20 January 2016 | 09:29 CET | News
Semtech will work with Korean gas supplier SK E&S and telecom operator SK Telecom to develop and deploy automated gas meters and detectors in Busan, Seoul and Gangwon Province to test a new advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system that the two Korean companies intend to deploy in eight cities across Korea in 2017. The new meter, based on a proof of concept, uses LoRa-based RF sensors to relay information regarding gas usage to the central office automatically using SKT's LoRaWAN wireless network without any human intervention.
