The cloud solver is an integral part of the LoRa Edge platform for computing a position fix using GNSS and for acquiring a Wi-Fi based location fix using triangulation of static MAC addresses. There are inherent advantages to using Semtech’s end-to-end LoRa Cloud solution such as Join Server, DAS, FUOTA, On-premise support all working in unison. However, if a customer wants to source, test and assemble these pieces independently by themselves, we will support that as well.
