What is LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks)?
Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) is a category of wireless technology that allows battery-powered devices to be interconnected at low bandwidth and low data rates over long distances.
Different LPWANs are ideal for machine-to-machine (M2M)/IoT applications, including those in the smart city, smart environment, and industrial sectors, as IoT devices require more longevity than speed and bandwidth. Many LPWAN technologies have gained prominence in recent years, offering cost, coverage, and power consumption advantages. When it comes to wireless technology, there is no single solution.
It is therefore important to understand what an LPWAN technology should be.
There are several factors to consider when choosing the right LPWAN technology for your next IoT project:
