LoRa
AADONA LoRaWan Gateway ZLR-GW
OVERVIEW
LoRaWAN is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) protocol, built on top of LoRa wireless RF and promoted by the LoRa Alliance, that supports long range, low-cost, mobile, energy-efficient, deep indoor penetration and secure end-to-end bi-directional communication for Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications. Running on unlicensed ISM frequencies worldwide, this connectivity is specifically dedicated to IoT use cases and allows cost efficient deployments and operations for both public or private networks.
BENEFITS

Long Range

LoRaWAN provides robust long-range communication (up to 40 km in rural areas and up to 3 km in urban environment, and depending on gateways performances) between sensors on the field and radio network stations.

Low Power

LoRaWAN was designed to specifically reduce the power consumption and extend the battery lifetime of connected sensors, up to 10+ years

Fully Bidirectional

LoRaWAN enables fully bidirectional communications that can support many use cases that require both uplinks and downlinks, either with limited random receive windows (Class A), with limited scheduled receive slots (Class B), or with maximal and almost continuous receive slots (Class C).

Native Geolocation

LoRaWAN offers secure network-based geolocation to locate any LoRa-enabled fixed or mobile end-device. LoRa uses Time Differential on Arrival and other hybrid techniques to determine location without using extra processing power on the end-device side. This native capability, unlike GPS, does not increase energy consumption, nor needs additional costly hardware component.

Deep Indoor Penetration

LoRa® radio modulation allows deep indoor penetration, making it possible to reach energy meters, controls modules in elevators shafts, or parking sensors located in basements and undergrounds.

Free Unlicensed Band

LoRaWAN networks operates on license-free and cost-free ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) bands – EU 868 MHz, AS 923 MHz, US 915 MHz – allowing any service provider or company to deploy and operate networks without acquiring a license from the regulator.

Open Standard

LoRaWAN standard leverages an open protocol approach, led by the LoRa Alliance which federates the specification, development and deployment of the standard, elaborates certification guides, and ensures interoperability between all radio infrastructure providers, core network vendors and end-devices designers and manufacturers.

Cost Efficiency

LoRaWAN open standard, high performance infrastructure, and value-added connectivity services enables public or private operators to deploy and operate networks quickly, with streamlined capital expenditure (Capex) and operational expenses (Opex), and achieve a fast time to market to benefit from the IoT expansion in various segments.

Security

LoRaWAN offers two future-proof layers of end-to-end security:

  • For the network that ensures mutual authentication between a LoRaWAN end-device and the LoRaWAN network as part of the network join procedure. This grants that network traffic has not been altered, only comes for a legitimate end-device authorized to join an authentic network, is not comprehensible to eavesdroppers, and has not been captured and replayed by rogue actors.
  • For the application that ensures the network operator does not have access to the end user’s application data. LoRaWAN is one of the few IoT network implementing end-to-end encryption for application payloads exchanged between the end-devices and applications servers. In traditional cellular networks, the traffic is encrypted over the air interface but transmitted as plain text in the operator’s core network, requesting the user to select and deploy an additional security layer (VPN or dedicated security layer encryption application).

Scalability

LoRaWAN offers high scalability and capacity networks to support thousands of connected end-devices and millions of messages transmitted. This high performance is achieved by utilizing Adaptive Data Rate (ADR) and by using a multi-channel multi modem transceiver in the gateway so that simultaneous messages on multiple channels can be received.
