LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) provides optimized wireless connectivity tailored for IoT devices and sensors. With LoRaWAN sensors and gateways, businesses can build scalable, reliable and low-cost IoT networks to connect assets, infrastructure and shipments across miles.
How lorawan sensors Work
LoRaWAN sensors incorporate LoRa chips that use chirp spread spectrum modulation to achieve long-range connectivity while minimizing power consumption. This enables battery lifetimes up to 10 years for some use cases. Sensors send small packets of data occasionally over the LoRaWAN network to cloud applications.
LoRaWAN Gateways Relay Data
LoRaWAN gateways feature LoRa concentrators to receive data from LoRaWAN end-devices and forward it to the cloud. Gateways act as a transparent bridge between sensors and the central network server. A single gateway can connect thousands of sensors across miles.
Building IoT Networks with LoRaWAN
The long range wireless connectivity of LoRaWAN enables many smart city, industry 4.0 and supply chain tracking use cases not feasible with WiFi or Bluetooth. With robust security and easy deployment, LoRaWAN deliver efficient and scalable IoT connectivity for:
Infrastructure monitoring - pipelines, railway tracks, power grids
Environmental sensing - air/soil quality, water level
Asset tracking - inventory, equipment, tools
Metering - water, gas, energy meters
Agriculture monitoring - soil moisture, crop health
LoRaWAN provides the optimized wireless backbone to build low-cost, reliable and scalable IoT networks across infrastructure, supply chains and production environments. Combining LoRaWAN sensors and gateways unlocks intelligent IoT network solutions.
