LoRa & LoRaWAN

The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.

Key Features of LoRa Technology and the LoRaWAN Protocol

  • Geolocation
  • Enables GPS-free, low power tracking applications
  • Low Cost
  • Reduces costs three ways: infrastructure investment, operating expenses and end-node sensors
  • Standardized
  • Improved global interoperability speeds adoption and roll out of LoRaWAN-based networks and IoT applications
  • Low Power
  • Protocol designed specifically for low power consumption extending battery lifetime up to 20 years
  • Long Range
  • Single base station provides deep penetration in dense urban/indoor regions, plus connects rural areas up to 30 miles away
  • Secure
  • Embedded end-to-end AES128 encryption
  • High Capacity
  • Supports millions of messages per base station, ideal for public network operators serving many customers
