Own your IoT Network

LoRaWAN is the most cost-efficient network solution available. LoRaWAN enables cities to provide urban areas and regions with the required IoT-Applications. The independency from telecommunication providers give cities the possibility to extend their network individually to meet their needs and remain in charge of costs and availability.

Long range coverage

A single gateway or base station can cover a range varying from 2.5 to 20 km and can connect up to millions of different sensors. LoRaWAN networks are available in areas where no cellular networks are available (cellar, woods, country side, eg.). LoRaWAN is very easy and extremely fast to extend at a very low cost.

Most energy efficient

LoRaWAN is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated sensors. LoRaWAN data rates range from 0.3 kbps to 50 kbps. To maximize the battery life of the end-devices, the LoRaWAN network server is individually managing the data rate and RF output for each end-device.

Highest data security

LoRaWAN networks target critical infrastructure, confidential personal data or critical functions for the society and have a special need for secure communication. This has been solved by several layer of encryption. There are two static AES 128 bits keys which are stored in the device and in the gateway.
