LoRaWAN | March 30, 2022

The_LoRaWAN_World
The LoRa Alliance, a global trade group that supports the open LoRaWAN standard for the internet of things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), announced an expanded program for the LoRaWAN World Expo, which will take place July 6-7, 2022, at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. The program’s new additions focus on why LoRaWAN is the premier low-power vast area network (LPWAN) for supporting enterprises’ environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards while also offering a high return on investment (ROI).

Global demand for LoRaWAN solutions has exploded–in part to address ESG requirements. Automated alerts triggered by analysis of the data LoRaWAN collects are creating significant opportunities for resource conservation, predictive maintenance, safety, and waste reduction to improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of our resources. In addition, LoRaWAN is the most widely deployed LPWAN solution because the market trusts the technology, which has global network availability, the ability to roam globally, and delivers considerable cost savings”

Donna Moore, CEO and chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance.


The acceleration of digital transformation, which went from a nice-to-have to a must among corporations and communities worldwide, pushed on by the lesson learned from COVID-19, has fueled LoRaWAN’s expansion. In short, digitalization has become crucial to ensuring safe settings for our residents’ and planet’s health and safety.

While LoRaWAN currently benefits people, the environment, and profits, the LoRa Alliance acknowledges its potential for development. It is pleased to have used this subject in several Expo presentations. According to the World Economic Forum’s Internet of Things Guidelines for Sustainability report, 84 percent of Internet of Things deployments presently target or have the capacity to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Several workshops will address societal issues such as healthcare, elder care, workplace safety, historical preservation, and more. Finally, speakers from think tanks and government agencies such as Arcep, ITU-T, and the European Union Commission for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education, and Youth will discuss crucial considerations for LoRaWAN and its governance.

The new LPAD-7 Touch Panel is the ideal solution to control/visualize office environmental operations as it boasts multisensor technology, user-friendly design and compatibility with a broad range of communication protocols. VTScada, an intuitive SCADA platform for industrial monitoring/control that supports processes for more than 80 million people worldwide, is also a major attraction of the online exhibition. Kelvin Huang, President of Delta Electronics (Americas) Ltd., said, "We are thrilled to share our expanded portfolio of smart green solutions, which help cut operating costs, increase human wellbeing and promote long-term sustainability in buildings and cities across North America and South America. We also look forward to cooperating further with our customers and partners in the Americas region to deploy solutions that create a low-carbon future for generations to come." Key highlights are: Building Automation Solutions: The award-winning O3, developed by Canadian-based Delta Controls, a Delta Group company, integrates with the standalone O3 Room Controller, offering connectivity with BACnet, DALI, EnOcean, Universal I/O, and Modbus communication protocols to facilitate smart control of room HVAC, access and lighting sub-systems. The O3 Sensor Hub boasts U.S.-patented technology integrating temperature, humidity, motion, light intensity and sound sensors in one platform. The O3 helped save up to 15% annual electricity savings at a large venue in south Florida and corrected substantial energy waste by correcting data measurement limitations in traditional wall thermostats for the venue's 17 air conditioning units. The newly-launched LPAD-7 Touch Panel, developed by Austrian-based LOYTEC--a Delta Group company--is an innovative and user-friendly device featuring an ultra-thin (21mm) casing, 7-inch IPS display, embedded sensing technology. The LPAD-7 is compatible with a broad range of building control protocols like BACnet, EnOcean, LonMark, Modbus, Bluetooth, OPC XML/DA and OPC UA. The LPAD-7 facilitates comprehensive smart room control and visualization in office, commercial, hospitality and even residential buildings. Industrial Automation Solutions for HVAC Applications: VTScada, a robust supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) platform developed by Canadian-based Trihedral, a Delta Group company, allows for the creation of customized industrial monitoring and control in a wide range of mission-critical applications, including manufacturing, water treatment, HVAC, medical, power generation, food and beverage, airports, and more. VTScada supports customers' operations in over 150 countries worldwide. The Delta Vector Control Drive CP2000 series for fans and pumps is equipped with superior HVAC industrial parameters of fan, pump and air handling unit (AHU), PID control and multi-segment V/F control curve capabilities, as well as built-in 10K-step PLC programming.
