LoRa Alliance® Announces IEC and CEN Standards Validate LoRaWAN for Smart Metering; Builds on Earlier OMS Group and DLMS-UA Adoption
FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The LoRa Alliance®, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN® standard for internet of things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), today provided multiple updates on the rapid deployment of LoRaWAN as a standard for the utilities market. Notably, the European Committee of Normalization (CEN) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recently validated LoRaWAN for smart metering. The latest LoRaWAN advancements for utilities will be featured at the upcoming Enlit conference, where the LoRa Alliance will be joined by 9 member companies in Hall 7.2, Stand F.150 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from Nov. 28-30, 2023. An additional 29 LoRa Alliance member companies will also have their own booths on the show floor.
“The LoRaWAN Standard has gained significant traction in the utilities market over the past few years, and 2023 is no exception,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “As an Alliance, we have strengthened LoRaWAN’s capabilities for this market with the addition of relay, which was designed to extend LoRaWAN coverage in situations where adding a LoRaWAN gateway is impossible or not justifiable. This is a benefit for utilities that need to connect all endpoints while minimizing the cost of network infrastructure. Additionally, CEN standardized the M-Bus adaptation layer for LPWAN especially M-Bus over LoRaWAN and IEC standardized the DLMS profile for LPWAN, in particular LoRaWAN. These developments validate the standard as a leading technology choice for smart metering for electricity, water, heat and gas.”
