LoRaWAN is the default standard for long-range, low power Internet of Things

IoT - Internet of Things

IoT is about Things being connected to the internet (in the way that today most people are connected to the internet). With “Things” there is a greater focus on measuring and monitoring. There is also a focus on activating things (switching on, off, up, down, etc.).

Things are a little different from people:

  • they are vastly less valuable, and often smaller

  • they are far more numerous, and don't have as much to say

  • they often need to operate away from power sources for extended periods of time

LoRaWAN Network

LoRaWAN uses a radio spectrum that allows anyone to establish a network (unlike mobile networks that are managed by Telcos). This makes LoRaWAN far cheaper than mobile networks.

LoRaWAN is well suited to measurement/ monitoring/ activating devices that are:

    • significantly less expensive than smartphones or laptops

    • maybe smaller than phones/ laptops

    • don't have as much to say, and can operate on batteries for extended periods of time
