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.
Earlier this year, Amazon opened their Amazon Sidewalk network to the public. With Sidewalk signal already covering over 90% of the U.S. population leveraging LoRa’s long range technology, Amazon Sidewalk offers LoRa as one of its connectivity options for device makers to connect LPWAN IoT devices into the sidewalk, enabling a new class of devices with long range community coverage. In areas of the U.S. where Sidewalk coverage is unavailable, or outside the U.S., devices using the new Oxit module can connect to any compatible LoRaWAN® network, enabling AWS customers to connect their device to any compatible AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN or integrated public network. In addition, LoRaWAN technology not only enables customers to connect to an alternative public LoRaWAN network, but also deploy a gateway utilizing LoRaWAN and create a network anywhere.
The recently announced LoRa Basics™ Modem v4 feature release includes a powerful new feature – relay. It allows customers to add battery-operated, easy-to-deploy relay nodes that act as network extenders. These relay nodes can be placed in remote locations or in areas where signal strength is weak due to extreme distances or circumstances, effectively extending the range of existing gateway(s) and networks using LoRaWAN® connectivity.
The LoRa Basics Modem v4 feature release revolutionizes LoRaWAN® end device development by providing customers with:
Pioneering the Future of Energy with DLMS and LoRaWAN
During a panel session at a recent LoRaWAN Live! event in Orlando, moderated by Semtech, four prominent companies shed light on the application of Device Language Message Specification for smart electric metering in Brazil.
Understanding Smart Metering and LoRaWAN® Interoperability Standards in the EU
LoRaWAN, with the support of key metering standards DLMS and M-bus, is now a key component to compliance and interoperability among smart metering vendors for European utilities.
The LoRaWAN 1.0.4 Specification in Depth For End Device Developers course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the LoRaWAN 1.0.4 specification, crucial for efficient LoRaWAN implementation and end device development. The course is divided into six chapters, or books, each focusing on a specific aspect of LoRaWAN implementation.
Semtech is pleased to announce the availability of the LoRa Calculator.
Why Choose the Helium Network for IoT Solutions
The Helium Network is a platform for systems integrators and other who want to get LoRaWAN® -based IoT solutions to market quickly without investing in a lot of infrastructure.
Understanding On-Premise LoRaWAN® Deployments
Many LoRaWAN deployments are private or on-premise. These deployments rely on the ability to deploy sensors, gateways and a network server within a company’s own infrastructure, and might require that the entire infrastructure remain sealed off from the internet.
