With the growing Internet of Things, we have a LoRa® technology wireless solution to address increasing demands on end-devices for long range connectivity, low-power for battery operation, and low infrastructure cost for volume deployment.
Our LoRa technology solution is ready to run out-of-the box and with the complete LoRaWAN® protocol and certifications in place, it reduces time to market and saves development costs.
LoRa technology is ideal for battery-operated sensor and low power applications, including:
LoRa technology is a proprietary wireless technology developed by Semtech Corporation. It utilizes a spread spectrum modulation in the Sub-GHz band to enable long range (greater than 10 miles) coverage, low power consumption (up to 10 years battery power), high network capacity (up to 1 million nodes), robust communication, and localization capability.
The LoRaWAN protocol is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery-operated devices in regional, national or global networks.
LoRaWAN protocol targets key requirements of the Internet of Things such as:
The LoRaWAN protocol standard will provide seamless interoperability among Smart ‘things’ without the need for complex local installations, further enabling the Internet of Things.
The LoRaWAN protocol implements several layers of encryption to ensure the highest security for the whole infrastructure.
The LoRaWAN protocol addresses a variety of applications by providing different protocol classes:

LoRa technology network’s architecture is a star topology. End devices transfer data to gateways which pass data to the network server. There are currently two LoRa technology network options available:
We make it easy to establish the LoRa technology IoT infrastructure by providing complete, fully-certified, LoRat technology end-device modules. The modules have embedded LoRaWAN on-board to easily connect to any LoRa Alliance certified gateway and network services listed below:
Telecom companies integrate gateways on towers and provide network service. Our end devices are embedded with the LoRaWAN protocol to easily connect to the telecom service provider.
