LoRaWAN™ is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated Things in regional, national or global network. LoRaWAN target key requirements of internet of things such as secure bi-directional communication, mobility, localization services, high capacity and long battery lifetime. This standard will provide seamless interoperability among smart Things without the need of complex local installations and gives back the freedom to the user, developer, businesses enabling the roll out of Internet of Things.
Applications for LoRa wireless technology include: smart metering, inventory tracking, vending machine data and monitoring, automotive industry, utility applications, etc..
LoRaWAN™ has significant cost savings in the deployment and required
infrastructure compared to existing systems.
