The collaboration is built on Long Range Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (LR-FHSS), the latest addition to the LoRaWAN standard.
“The addition of LR-FHSS to the LoRaWAN standard further increases capacity and resilience of ubiquitous connectivity,” says Semtech’s Marc Pégulu, “Lacuna’s application of this affordable and simplified technology will further expand access to connection through their satellite technology.”

“We have trials and demonstrations underway in many countries and regions that were previously thought to be inaccessible to IoT,” says Lacuna Space CEI Rob Spurrett, “with this collaboration, we expect to begin commercial services within the first half of 2022.”
LR-FHSS takes up less room on the network, which future-proofs capacity while maintaining low power consumption capabilities – which, in turn, enables affordable and simple satellite IoT platforms.
