Recent Developments in Long Range IoT

Posted by Roelof Koopmans on Sep 1, 2021 12:08:37 PM

LoRaWAN® has become a leading wireless protocol for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications that require long range wireless connectivity in combination with ultra-low power consumption. Many massive IoT applications are only economically viable when the batteries in the sensors, trackers or other devices can last years , in some cases even more than 10 years.

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.

A Full Duplex LoRaWAN® Gateway for the U.S. 915MHz ISM Band

Posted by Steve Lee on Jun 21, 2021 12:00:00 AM

 

The LoRa® Corecell Full-Duplex gateway reference design is a highly integrated indoor and outdoor gateway solution designed specifically for the U.S.s 915MHz ISM band. This full-duplex gateway design makes it possible to expand network capacity for outdoor and indoor applications, such as smart metering, smart offices, smart buildings, and smart factories. Moreover, it increases the capacity of networks with fewer gateways, thus providing cost savings for end customers when compared to cellular charges.
