Unlocking the Future

To better address those billions of IoT devices only transmitting a megabyte of data per month, and in most cases far less, LPWA offers the opportunity to free industrial applications from the consumer-driven cycles of the public cellular networks by providing the stability of public or private networks designed and built specifically for machines.

These low-power wide area networks extend battery life and range and providing “good enough” connectivity for the large majority of connected device use cases.

What is a LoRaWAN Network?

LoRaWAN? communications work best for remotely-deployed applications that require long-range or deep in-building communication between a large number of devices that have low power requirements and collect low or sporadic amounts of data. Created by the LoRa Alliance? to standardize LPWANs, LoRa transceivers utilize worldwide unlicensed spectrum such as those in the 433/470/868/780/915 MHz ISM bands, which is more cost-efficient to develop and deploy assets into than the 40+ global LTE bands and experiences less interference compared to Wi-Fi (which operates at 2.4GHz and 5GHz) and Bluetooth.

LoRaWAN technology allows public or private single- or multi-tenant networks to connect multiple applications in the same space — coexisting to enable new IoT, M2M, smart city, sensor-network, and industrial automation applications. Leveraging a star topography, the sensors communicate with gateways in the LoRa network. The LoRa gateways can then act as a transparent bridge relaying messages between end-devices and a central network server on the backend, which is ideal for public nationwide deployments, where gateways are connected to the network server via standard IP connections as well as for highly controlled private rollouts where security and control are essential.

Leveraging the Advantages of LoRaWAN Communications

LoRaWAN technology has created new opportunities across a wide range of industries and use cases. Solutions to complex challenges, such as energy management, remote patient monitoring and improving agricultural yield, have changed dramatically in recent years. While technology is constantly improving, the increasing accessibility of LoRa devices has allowed businesses to increase efficiencies, and in turn, reduce operating costs.

Advantages of LoRaWAN technology include:

Impressive Range: 

Connect devices that are up to 10 miles apart and penetrate deep into buildings in interior environments.

Low Power Requirements: 

LoRa devices are designed to operate at low power, extending their lifespans and reducing the need for costly maintenance over time.

Secure: 

The data that’s transferred between LoRa devices is encrypted in order to protect its integrity, enhancing security for users.

Mobile: 

LoRaWAN connections can exist between devices in motion.

Standardized: 

LoRaWAN has become an accepted standard for industrial IoT communications. That means you spend less time troubleshooting compatibility issues and more time implementing solutions. 

Geolocation-enabled: 

LoRaWAN uses location data that does not rely on GPS, making it an attractive option for location-dependent applications.

Software-Enhanced:

MultiTech devices are built with practicality in mind, and our powerful software allows users to get the most out of the hardware.
