Semtech LoRaWAN Used in ICT International Water Quality Systems

ICT International’s sensors form a part of the Estuary Sensor Platform, a tool built for oyster farmers as part of the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries AUD 6.7 million Climate-Smart Pilots project.

Semtech Corporation has reported that ICT International has integrated Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN standard into its water quality monitoring systems for aquaculture.

Semtech ICT International Water Quality SystemsThe implementation of LoRaWAN provides long-range, low-power, wide-area network coverage, allowing these systems to transmit measured data which includes temperature, water level/tide, water salinity, and more to oyster farmers in near real-time.

“ICT International’s water quality systems leveraging LoRaWAN deliver near real-time water salinity and temperature data directly into the hands of the oyster farmers,” said Peter Cull, Managing Director at ICT International. “Data-based management is driving reductions in oyster mortality, increased harvest times, and reduced labor costs.”

“The IoT is simplifying and easing workloads more than ever seen before by providing valuable data that helps to efficiently scale most work applications,” said Marc Pégulu, Vice President of IoT product marketing and strategy for Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “ICT International’s oyster farming sensor solutions are a great example of the value of Semtech’s LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN standard to smartly monitor the earth’s resources and keep businesses working year-long.”

The platform features centralized gateways using LoRaWAN to capture sensor data and upload it in a Cloud-based system.

The data is then visually represented through the ICT Dataview web platform, which allows farmers to view the oyster’s environmental conditions.
