Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is LoRaWAN?

A: The LoRaWAN® specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.


Q: What are the advantages of using LoRaWAN for IoT applications?

A:  In contrast to traditional communication protocols, LoRaWAN offers notable advantages. These include its capacity to cover extensive geographical areas, its low power consumption, and its provision of secure communication. This technology is particularly well-suited for applications requiring long-distance device communication while preserving battery life.


Q: What is Wi-SUN?

A: Wi-SUN (Wireless Smart Utility Network) is a wireless communication standard that enables seamless connectivity between smart-grid devices. The standard powers large-scale outdoor IoT networks like wireless mesh networks for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), home energy management, distribution automation, and other large scale outdoor network applications including FAN (Field Area Networks) and HAN (Home Area Networks).


Q: What is wM-Bus?

A: wM-Bus, known as Wireless Meter-Bus, serves as a wireless communication standard for remote utility meter reading. It enables two-way communication between utility meters (such as water, gas, heat, and electricity meters) and data collection devices, allowing for remote reading, data retrieval, and configuration of the meters.


Q: What industries or applications benefit most from LoRaWAN and Wi-SUN technologies?

A: LoRaWAN and Wi-SUN are utilized in various sectors such as smart cities, industrial automation, agriculture, environmental monitoring, and utility metering. They offer cost-effective and dependable connectivity solutions for a wide range of IoT deployments.
