The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area Networking (LP-WAN) protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet.
We use LoRaWAN to create robust in-building networks of sensors, providing footfall, occupancy, and environmental data from desks, meeting rooms, and open spaces. We then sort, aggregate and visualise this data within our dashboards.
LoRaWAN network architecture is deployed in a star-of-stars topology in which gateways relay messages between end-devices and a central network server. The gateways are connected to the network server via standard IP connections and act as a transparent bridge, simply converting RF packets to IP packets and vice versa.
The LoRaWAN specification is developed and maintained by the LoRa Alliance: an open association of collaborating members.
