LoRaWAN overview

LoRaWAN overview LoRa (short for Long Range) is a modulation technique that is used in LoRaWAN networks for low-power, long-range wireless communications on the sub-1GHz band.  LoRaWAN is a media access control (MAC) protocol for wide area networks (WANs) that uses low-power, long-range wireless communications to connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It is based…
