What does LoRaWAN mean?
The abbreviation of LoRaWAN is the Low Range Wide Area Network.
It is type connectivity in IoT which sends data from a thing where IoT sensors are attached to the cloud system.
This is collecting data from sensors observing the internal or external state of a thing.
LoRa provides long-range communications and the data can be transmitted up to 15 Km.
It is a method of transmitting radio signals to encode the information.
This technology can be set up in any remote area that will not require any GPS and consumes very little power will withstand around a decade.
LoRaWAN uses LoRa, the physical object, for creating a wide area network that transfers the data.
LoRaWAN is free from any licensing, completely free.
What is the difference between LoRa and LoRaWAN?
LoRa is a method of transmitting the radio signals and LoRaWAN is a point to multipoint networking protocol that uses LoRa modulation.
LoRaWAN assists in communicating the signal to the codes and identifying the location.
LoRaWAN connects the cloud system for exchanging and processing the data.
How LoRaWAN works?
LoRaWAN uses a star architecture where a central node is connected with all other nodes and gateways serve between end devices and the central network server.
This gateway is connected to the network server and app server and the cloud system.
What is LoRaWAN in IoT?
LoRaWAN is a wide area network system that connects the sensor to the network server by transmitting data from the sensor.
LoRaWAN enables an IoT by connecting many sensors and transmitting data to the servers.
The feature of LoRaWAN like long-range communication, low battery consumption,and low-cost factors coupled with the Internet of things is being more cost-effective.
LoRaWAN covers most of the area of geography to collect data from sensors.
This facilitates transmitting data from IoT to the cloud system with cost-effective and operationally effective.
What is the use of LoRaWAN in IoT?
LoRaWAN is used in many IoT applications in transmitting data and helping the IoT implementing partner effectively in a cost-effective way and long-range communication.
The LoRaWAN is used in the following applications
- Smart Home
- Smart Cities
- Health care system
- Industrial application
- Supply chain
- Environmental monitoring
So, LoRaWAN can be used in many ways in IoT applications and SEMTech is the company is providing the LoRaWAN implementation support and other facilities related to the connectivity in the Internet of Things.
