The   Internet   of   Things    is   poised   to   be   the   next   big   technology   disruptor’   of   the   century.   It   is   estimated   that   close   to   20+   billions    of   devices   and sensors   will   be   connected   to   the   Internet   by   the   year   2020.   With   these numbers   in   mind   service   providers,   manufacturers   and   engineering groups   are   on   a   race   for   the   ultimate   IoT   technology :   from   cellular LTE     based    in    the    form    of    Narrowband     ( NB )    IoT    and    Cat-M ,     to proprietary   models   such   as   Sigfox    and   I ngenu   RPMA .   However,   when it   comes   to   long   range ,   low   battery ,   low   cost ,   open-source    applications there’s    another    very    strong    competitor    currently    being    developed specifically without the need of cellular or WiFi technologies: LoRa®. Semtech’s    LoRa®    modulation   is   a   patented   technology    that   allows for   very   long   ranges   (around   1   to   10   miles)   of   wireless   reception   due to   its   robust   radio   sensitivity    of   -137   dBm   to   -148   dBm.   Specifically designed    from    the    ‘ground    up’    for    small    data ,    very    low    energy consumption   of   battery   operated   devices   that   can   last   5,   10   or   more years   on   a   single   charge,   LoRa®   uses   a   very   small   factor   for   increased efficiency   that   can   be   used   indoors   as   well,   along   with   highly   end-to- end secure transmission mechanisms such as AES-128 . Although   the   physical   (PHY)   modulation   used   to   connect   sensors   to LoRa®    receivers    (commonly   referred   to   as   gateways ,      ‘concentrators’, ‘base    stations’    or    ‘access    points’),    is     a    patented    and    proprietary technology     owned    by    the    Semtech    Corporation,    the    use    of    such wireless    technology    and    its    application    to    the    wider    area    realm, referred   to   as   LoRaWAN®    is    royalty-free ,   license-free    and   open- sourced    and   globally   standardized    by   the   LoRa   Alliance® ,   making   it one    of    the    world’s    most    popular    long    range    wide    area    networks’ technologies used by public, private and commercial entities alike. rēd     wireless    has    chosen    LoRaWAN®     as    its    LPWAN     technology    of choice   for   current   and   future   Smart   Wireless   and   IoT   projects.      rēd    has also   invested   heavily   on   R&D    ( Research   &   Development )   over   the   last years,   testing,   proving   ( and    disproving)   what   works   and   what   doesn’t   : from     sensors,     devices,     gateways,     network     providers,     application platforms   and   solution   providers.   Our   thinking   outside   the   [IoT]   box’   mentality   has   allowed   us   to   be   in   a   privileged   position   to   know   (and offer)    what    truly    works    -    which    yields    in    sound    and    cost    effective solutions to our clients and partners !
