LoRaWAN™ is designed to provide Long Range, Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN).
The range provided is up to 15 km so each mast can potentially cover a 30 km diameter zone, making it an ideal and cost-effective network for Smart Cities, Internet of Things, M2M and other applications requiring secure two-way communication. The low transmission power feature makes it ideal for battery-powered devices, conserving battery life.
