LoRaWAN is a standard developed by the non-profit organization LoRa AllianceTM. LoRa AllianceTM members include many IoT companies from around the world. LoRaWAN uses the unlicensed band signals of the sub-gigahertz band that does not require a license (around 900 MHz. 920 MHz in Japan), and its maximum packet size is 256 bytes and its speed is 200 to 10 kbps. An additional feature is that its high noise immunity makes it highly sensitive to radio waves from devices connected to a wireless network.
This enables LoRaWAN to act as a specialized long-range technology to send and receive data not only in urban areas, but also in mountainous areas and on remote islands.
Murata's Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) wireless modules are the industry's smallest modules, enabling the design of a wide range of compact end devices. LoRaWAN is also certified by the LoRa AllianceTM.
