LPWA technologies enable low power communications over a large area, typically at low bit rates. With billions of sensors capturing data from the physical world, there’s growing need to transmit data from remote locations that are not connected to power sources. The family of LPWA technologies including LoRa, NB-IOT, and others are perfectly suited to support new use cases in agriculture, transportation, smart spaces, supply chain, manufacturing and many other areas.
The reality is that there is not one solution but rather a variety of low-power, wide area network technologies that take many shapes and forms. It follows that there are various criteria that need to be considered before a business should invest into a LPWA structure.
We take a critical look at the current market landscape, providing deep industry insights by experienced technologists who will share first-hand use cases and offer thought-provoking insights into how this technology is transforming connected industry.
We will be taking a look at:
- The current market landscape
- The different types of LPWA technologies
- How LPWA technologies can solve unique problems
- How to incorporate LPWA technologies into your business

Ed Maguire, Principal Partner, Momenta Partners & Rick Bullotta, Technologist and Founder of ThingWorx and LighthammerRecorded: Jul 23 201960 mins
Rick Bullotta founded two companies that have been pivotal in the development of Connected Industry: Lighthammer (acquired by SAP in 2005) and Thingworx (acquired by PTC in 2014) and he is now an adviser to Microsoft Azure IoT. Rick is a passionate advocate of new technologies and innovation, and enjoys the disclaimer that “80% is fact and 20% is BS - and I don’t know which is which”.
Our conversation explores his personal background in industrial technology, and how the insights gained from his experiences at Wonderware helped shape the vision for the companies he started. Exploring the genesis of Lighthammer and Thingworx, the discussion touches on why blue-collar tasks benefit from an IT-driven “multiplier effect”, how innovation comes from empowered customers, and how simple visibility can kick-start profound changes in industrial businesses. Other topics covered include the market landscape around IoT platforms, potential of AI and machine learning, the possibilities and pitfalls around blockchain and the future of Connected Industry.
Areas of particular interest in technology include meta-sensing technologies around drones and robotics, simplifying the last foot of connectivity, 5G technologies and a company called Waveio.ai that seeks create events and alerting without relying on audio.

On site energy centres can provide long-term cost and carbon savings, sheltering large energy users from rising energy costs and boosting sustainability through low carbon generation. Industrial sites and commercial property infrastructure are playing an increasing role in the decentralised energy system but technology is rapidly evolving, and no one solution suits all users. Businesses face a myriad of choices, from on-site heat and power generation and waste heat recovery to peaking plant to provide export services.
In this webinar, Stuart Reid and Mark Tarry from AMP Clean Energy will explain how businesses can still benefit from the transition to decentralised energy, despite a changing subsidy environment.
The webinar will consider what options are available to businesses looking to explore a switch to on-site generation, from choosing the best low carbon technology for your site’s needs to overcoming financial obstacles to secure investment.
You’ll also hear real-life examples of how the installation of an on-site peaking plant is helping a commercial property developer attract new tenants and how award-winning British grower Villa Nursery’s CHP plant has reduced their gas spend by £200,000 per annum, and the rewards they have reaped since its installation in 2017.

Many states across the US have taken a proactive approach to address climate change despite federal pushback against clean power. California recently joined the growing list of states and regions that are committing to carbon neutrality and becoming 100% green with the recent passing of SB100. Reaching these goals is an ambitious task on many fronts. Regardless, there is a growing positive sentiment and a sense of urgency to embrace electrification of transportation (EoT) coming from the consumer and electric grid sides.
