Case Study: Building Global LoRaWAN IoT Networks
Accelerating the design and deployment of IoT networks in months, not years, with immediate return on investment
In India, more than 100 smart cities have been planned, and LoRa™ technology is well on its way to becoming mainstream. The Indian government is funding smart cities connected by LoRaWAN™ networks to improve quality of life, reduce pollution, ensure a stable electricity supply, monitor and manage clean water systems, and generally prepare for continued population growth particularly in urban areas already crowded. The government has also identified the opportunity for massive job creation in support of India's already vibrant technology industry. With competition growing, service providers need to move quickly and establish a base of customers with reliable, scalable, cost-effective solutions.
IoT Network Technical and Business Challenges
LoRaWAN service providers require expertise and the right software and equipment to stand up their networks. Every LoRaWAN system has 3 major components: the network server (which receives data packets from devices, duplicates/decodes them, and generates the packets to be returned), the network gateway (which uses an IP interface to route data packets from the devices to the server) and end-devices (sensors which use the LoRa technology for sending packets).
