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.

LoRaWAN® and Wi-Fi: A Win-Win Combination

Posted by Remi Lorrain on Nov 18, 2020 11:14:09 AM

What do you get when you combine the LoRaWAN®  protocol with Wi-Fi? A cost-effective approach to an Internet of Things (IoT) network deployment that offers significant opportunity for Wi-Fi providers and IoT developers. By employing a network mutualization scheme combining the LoRaWAN protocol and Wi-Fi connectivity, Wi-Fi providers can expand their business to provide coverage for both broadband applications and massive IoT deployments that leverage the (free) unlicensed radio spectrum.
