LoRaWAN stands for Long Range Wide Area Network. It’s a standard for wireless communication that allows IoT (Internet of Things) devices to communicate over large distances with minimal battery usage.
LoRaWAN is a point-to-multipoint networking protocol that uses Semtech’s LoRa modulation scheme. It’s not just about the radio waves; it’s about how the radio waves communicate with LoRaWAN Nitro ION Miners carry out functions like encryption and identification. It also includes a cloud component, which multiple Nitro ION Miners connect to.
A network based on the open LoRaWAN protocol is perfect for applications that require long-range or deep in-building communication among a large number of devices that have low power requirements and that collect small amounts of data.
