LoRaWAN

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

LoRaWAN is a low-power wide-area network, designed for low-power consumption and communication over long distances using low bitrates. It provides for communication between devices and gateways, which can then forward the data to, for example, applications or servers. A typical usage is for a distributed set of sensors, or for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, for which long battery life and long-range communication is a must. LoRaWAN addresses two of the key problems with attempting to use normal Wi-Fi for such applications: range and power consumption. There are several implementations, a notable one being The Things Network, a free, open source implementation.
