The LoRa Alliance and the DLMS User Association (DLMS UA) announced they have signed a liaison agreement to define a DLMS communication profile for LPWAN technologies such as LoRaWAN. Additionally, the two organizations will share knowledge, develop documentation and jointly educate the market ecosystem about the benefits of using the DLMS application protocol and data model over LoRaWAN networks.

Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance, said, “DLMS is a well-recognized application standard for utilities worldwide. LoRaWAN’s low power consumption and deep penetration are key aspects that will allow utilities to deploy long-lifetime IoT devices in buildings and underground, and use these to connect assets, create new services and accelerate their digitization.”

By using DLMS over LoRaWAN networks, utilities will achieve network connectivity that supports smart metering use cases – gas, electricity, thermal energy and water – across many different Internet of Things (IoT) applications. This will allow utilities to increase services and integration into smart homes, buildings, industries and even cities.
