Certifying an End Device for LoRaWAN®: European Sub-Bands

Posted by Tim Cooper on Jul 19, 2021 12:00:00 AM

The European radio regulations can be ambiguous when it comes to certifying and understanding LoRaWAN® network operation. Here we take a look at how an end device built with a LoRa® chipset should be certified for regulatory compliance, as well as the duty-cycle capacity we can expect from an end device deployed in a practical LoRaWAN network.

Long Range with LoRa®

Posted by Tim Cooper on Mar 28, 2019 10:12:55 AM

How do we increase the range of a radio link? Here we look at the constraints at work when building a real-world long range radio link. We’ll show how and why LoRa Technology is the right choice for designing a radio link where range matters.

Long Range and Low Consumption in the Real World

How do we maximize the range of a low power radio link in a practical application? Assuming that we do not want to incur the hardware and recurring operating costs together with the high energy consumption of a Cellular solution, this means finding a solution in the license-free ISM band.
