LoRaWAN Features and Benefits

LoRaWAN is Rapidly Becoming the De-Facto Industry Standard for LPWA IoT Networks

Senet’s network is fully compliant with the latest LoRaWAN standards, delivering low power and long-range capabilities for indoor and outdoor applications. The simplicity of LoRaWAN’s global provisioning, long-range coverage and low TCO contrasts the complexity of local area networks (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee) or cellular services that can be prohibitive due to limited range, high power consumption and cost.

Simplicity

Centralized service provisioning and device management for global deployments

Bidirectional Communication

Sensor data uplinks and downlink application level control of the end device

Low Cost

Lower than cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite

Built-in Security

Using AES-128 CCM, privacy, authenticity and message integrity are assured end-to-end

Long Range

Greater than 15 miles rural and 5 miles urban

Dynamic Optimized Performance

Fastest data rates, shortest time-on-air and densest device deployments

Long Battery Life

10+ years from AA battery

Visibility and Control

Intuitive tools for customer mapping, analytics and system health

Best-in-Class Interference and Noise Immunity

LoRa® modulation and flexible channel plans

LoRa Alliance® Ecosystem

Fastest growing technology alliance and open standards for worldwide interoperability

With a diverse set of IoT applications characterized by different demands, there is no “one technology fits all” approach to delivering connectivity for all IoT applications. The emergence of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs), however, is fundamentally changing the IoT landscape. The cost and functionality gap between cellular and local-area networks has created an opportunity for LPWAN technologies, which excel at enabling low power, long range sensor applications where only small amounts of data are required.

The open LoRaWAN specification is a low power, wide area networking (LPWAN) protocol based on LoRa Technology. Designed to wirelessly connect battery operated things to the Internet in regional, national or global networks, the LoRaWAN protocol leverages the unlicensed radio spectrum in the Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The specification defines the device-to-infrastructure of LoRa physical layer parameters and the LoRaWAN protocol, and provides seamless interoperability between devices.

The ability to provide Firmware Upgrades Over The Air (FUOTA) is critical to several IoT application performance and device lifecycle requirements, including implementing bug fixes, patching security vulnerabilities and supporting new features. FUOTA support provides future-proofing of LoRaWAN deployments and ensures that devices will continue to operate over long lifetimes.

Senet’s FUOTA implementation provides efficient, secure and reliable multicast delivery of binary firmware images to end-devices and is compliant with the specifications and recommendations from the FUOTA Working Group of the LoRa Alliance Technical Committee, specifically the ability to transition the end-device between Class A and Class C modes of operation.

Of the billions of IoT sensor-enabled devices expected to be connected over the next few years, more than half are estimated to operate using Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs). Designed for sensors and applications that need to send and receive small amounts of data just a few times per hour or maybe only once a day, LPWANs are transforming the way things are monitored and measured and are contributing to a new wave of IoT innovation resulting in solutions and business models that otherwise would not be possible.

IoT is driving advancements across enterprise and industrial markets, and in vertical industries where it has the potential to streamline operations, deliver time and cost savings and create new services. It is also driving global economic and environmental change with new opportunities for innovation enabling businesses and citizens to make the world a better place.
