Deploying the RIGHT technology has never been as important as it is today. IoT and M2M connectivity applications continue to grow and so faced with a range of connectivity solutions, LoRa technology is one game-changing option to consider when building a next generation network.
LoRa (short for Long Range) enables very long range transmissions with low power consumption.
LoRa provides inexpensive, long-range connectivity for low powered IoT devices. Your LoRa network can be designed and installed as a standalone license free solution. These include non-mission critical applications such as smart agriculture, smart buildings, street lighting, asset tracking, logistics, solar monitoring and water monitoring.
|Plug & Play||Easy to implement a network, roll out when you need.|
|Future-proof technology available now||Other protocols are years away from implementation, yet LoRa connected devices are ready now..|
|Lower Network costs||Avoid costly network implementation if you don’t need a mission-critical solution. LoRa Terminals can be rolled out quickly and easily with no need to be tied to a particular operator or telecommunications carrier.|
|Ability for the terminal to act as a mesh||LoRa Terminals can talk to eachother rather than having to talk back through a gateway.|
|License free||Data in real-time with no service charges.|
|Resilient Technology||LoRa’s protocol works well in a noisy radio environment, resilient to interference issues.|
LoRa can be used to provide license free Long Range Connectivity for any LoRa enabled devices.
LoRa can be used in non-mission critical applications such as smart buildings, solar and water monitoring as well as smart agriculture.
In this example, a smart farm is managed and controlled by a single low cost, LoRa network. This includes:
Water level monitoring / Pump Control / Flow Metering / Silo Monitoring / Soil Moisture
