LoRa and LoRaWAN

The LoRaWAN open specification is a low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol based on LoRa Technology. Designed to wirelessly connect battery operated things to the Internet in regional, national or global networks, the LoRaWAN protocol leverages the unlicensed radio spectrum in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The specification defines the device-to-infrastructure of LoRa physical layer parameters and the LoRaWAN protocol, and provides seamless interoperability between devices.

Key Features of LoRa Technology:

  • Long Range
    Connects devices up to 30 miles apart in rural areas and penetrates dense urban or deep indoor environments
  • Low Power
    Requires minimal energy, with prolonged battery lifetime of up to 10 years, minimizing battery replacement costs
  • Secure
    Features end-to-end AES128 encryption, mutual authentication, integrity protection, and confidentiality
  • Standardized
    Offers device interoperability and global availability of LoRaWAN networks for speedy deployment of IoT applications anywhere
  • Geolocation
    Enables GPS-free tracking applications, offering unique low power benefits untouched by other technologies
  • Mobile
    Maintains communication with devices in motion without strain on power consumption
  • High Capacity
    Supports millions of messages per base station, meeting the needs of public network operators serving large markets
  • Low Cost
    Reduces infrastructure investment, battery replacement expense, and ultimately operating expenses.
