Top 3 Benefits of LoRa and Other LPWAN IoT Protocols
Updated: Aug 8, 2021
Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) protocols can be thought of as the cell phone for machines. In development for a few years, many professionally managed and amateur networks have been deployed over large geographies. Characterized by narrow band transmissions typically within sub-1GHz bands, these communications standards include LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless, and NB-IoT among others. Unique requirements of IoT applications, demand the capabilities that these protocols bring. Below the are the top three reasons LPWAN protocols are ideal for the IoT.
