LPWAN brings IoT
CONNECTIVITY to the masses
LPWAN such as LoRaWAN and NB-IoT, is a category of RF technologies that focus on wireless communication in IoT ecosystem. Acronym for low power wide area network, LPWAN is used for data communication in Internet of Things (IOT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications that require long range communication at a low data rate. They are optimised for low power consumption and can support battery life of several years. In spite of these advantages, LPWAN based IoT systems, boast of a relatively low cost of ownership for an end customer as well as the integrator. Any use case that requires a low bandwidth but still consistent data uplink to the cloud from a wide area, is suited for this technology. There is no doubt that the cities and industries of tomorrow are going to rely heavily upon LPWAN solutions such as LoRaWAN and NB-IoT.
We at Internext, are at the forefront of this technological revolution that is democratizing the world of IoT.

LoRaWAN vs NB-IoT
LoRa Stands for Long Range is a wireless platform which is designed specifically for long range and low power communication. It is used for connecting Machine to Machine and Internet of Things networks worldwide by providing low data rate connectivity over significant distances. LoRa Technology has been designed such that it can even receive and transmit low signal levels at low power to a wide range. LoRaWAN refers to the MAC layer protocol that defines the software specification governing the LoRa physical layer through mac commands.
Narrow Band Internet of Things is a type of LPWAN Technology which helps in improving power consumption of user devices. It provides ultra low device complexity, adds new physical layers signals and channels for meeting the demand of extended coverage. It focuses on high connection density and co-exist with all mobile networks such as 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G and all supported by the mobile equipment and is therefore benefited from the security and privacy features of mobile networks such as data integrity and Identity confidentiality.
