LoRa is an innovative wireless radio technology for building IoT networks. The technology offers a mix of long range for greater coverage, low power consumption and secure data transmission over both public and private networks. It is easy to plug into the existing infrastructure and offers a solution to serve battery-operated IoT applications.
- Key features of LoRa Technology
- Long Range
Single base station provides deep penetration in dense urban/indoor regions, plus connects rural areas up to 10 kilometers away
- Low Power
Protocol designed specifically for low power consumption extending battery lifetime
- Low Cost
Reduces costs three ways: infrastructure investment, operating expenses and end-node sensors
Embedded end-to-end AES128 encryption
- High Capacity
Supports up to thousands of sensor nodes, ideal for public network operators serving many customers
LoRa in Private Networks and Vertical Solutions
Not only for public network, LoRa also enables to deploy a private network which is often needed in IoT applications. The technology is ideal for developers, integrators and businesses to build thier own network and enable their vertical solution.
- Customer owns, installs and administrates his private network across his buildings and campuses
- Connects end node devices, sensors, machines inside the Intranet
- Compatible with public networks when available
- Strengthen/complement a public network in harsh industrial environments
Super Wi-Fi is using TV broadcast or so-called ‘White Space’ spectrum which are unused and available in nearly every location in the world to offer cost-effective wireless broadband connectivity in rural areas and for machine-to-machine communications.
Advantages of Super Wi-Fi
- Greater Distances
In typical applications, a Super Wi-Fi signal at the same power level can easily travel 400 meters and with higher power can cover many kilometers, while only 100 meters coverage with a strong Wi-Fi signal.
- Deep Penetration
Super Wi-Fi can overcome the limits of common obstructions from physical settings or topographical challenges such as concrete walls, many rooms in a building, and heavy foliage in rural areas. These could weaken the wireless signal for Internet connection.
- Greater Efficiencies
Covering a longer and wider range with approximately the same power and computing requirements results in systems that will deliver more bandwidth and more consumer benefits at lower network costs and lower power consumption. The spectrum utilization continues to grow new enhancements will emerge including “Internet of things” and ubiquitous machine to machine communication.
Wi-Fi vs Super Wi-Fi
||400 meters, can extend upto 8 Kms and above
||Higher (i.e. deeper), TV white space frequencies penetrate more deeper
compared to wifi signal through more walls and obstacles
||IEEE WLAN 802.11af , 802.22 WRAN
||100 Mbps (11n) to Gbps (11ad)
||25 Mbps (11af) to 40 Mbps(11ah)
|Frequency of Operation
||2.4 GHz and 5 GHz
||Operates in TV bands 470MHz to 698 MHz in the U.S., or 470 to 786 MHz internationally.
||better than wifi as it uses lower TV white space frequencies
||Internet or data communication
||same as wifi but at higher speed and deeper in the rooms where
wifi signal is not available
