LoRaWAN™ is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated things in a regional, national or global network. It promises to combine the long battery life of 802.15.4 networks with the wide area advantages of cellular. But what is this technology and how does it work? More important, how can we design and develop products to use this new technology – particularly if we do not have a local LoRaWAN provider? Join us this week as we look at the elements of LoRa and LoRaWAN, the advantages (and disadvantages) of this protocol, and the tools we need to develop IoT solutions that use LoRa. We will also look at how we can build our own LoRaWAN gateway using an inexpensive kit for both development and for deployment where a local LoRa provider doesn’t exist.
