Standard GPS signals require radio transmission and sophisticated equipment, have a large consumption and can reach reception problems in buildings. It also has high accuracy geolocation that means that your radio channel can be jammed. The challenge was to increase bandwidth, as well as to decrease consumption and prices.
LPWAN (Eng. Low-power Wide-area Network - "energy-efficient network of long-range") - Wireless technology transfer of small amounts of data over long distances developed for distributed networks of the Internet of Things.
SPECIFICATION LoRaWAN 1.1 – ROAMING
Networks receive the signal simultaneously in terms the device does not detect that it is in roaming.
- operates only in the LoRaWAN networks
- 10 yearsAA battery lifespan
- low-cost equipment
- an excellent range coverage
- cannot be affected by GSM-jammers
- low geolocation accuracy
LoRaWAN standard gives a solution for target markets of IoT basically including the spheres of agriculture, energy, housing, and utility infrastructure, as well as retail, finance, lightning, and security.
LoRaWAN provides minimum operating costs, secured and stable connection, wide range coverage, control of base stations, automatic collection, and visualization of data in a personal account, as well as a storage and processing of collected data (locally or remotely).
