LoRaWANTM – Long Range Wide Area Network
LoRaWANTM is a network specification for low power wireless data communication over long distances. NetModule co-develops this technologie and thus helps to provide new solutions for the Internet of Things.
As a part of the Internet of Things (IoT), LoRaWANTM is designed to connect lots of sensors and actuators regionally, nationally or even globally. LoRaTM uses the frequency band at 868 MHz (in Europe) and has a date rate of 0,3 kbps up to 50 kpbs. Despite large transmission distances of several kilometers, LoRa TM sends with minimal power. Therefore the required energy is so small, that battery powered sensors can function autonomously over several years.
A LoRaWANTM is typically laid out as a star topology. Gateways act as transparent bridges for data transmission between the end nodes and network servers. The gateways are connected to the network server via normal IP-based connections such as Ethernet, LTE or WLAN. All connections work bidirectionally. Multicast, however, is also supported.
