LoraWAN

Providing Coverage

Lets find out advantages of LoraWAN network which powers up Internet of Things (IoT). If there is no coverage in your area, we are happy to help you with that.

Long Range wide area network

What Is LoraWAN?

LoRaWAN® stands for "Long Range Wide Area Network". It is networking protocol designed specifically for low-power wide area (LPWA) wireless networks that use LoRa® (short for Long Range, a trademark of Semtech) as their physical layer. LoRaWAN® network architecture is deployed in a star topology where the main elements are battery-operated sensor devices (the end-nodes, the "things") transmitting to  one or multiple IP connected LoRaWAN® gateways that will forward the data to the Network Server that makes the data available to run the defined IoT application.

How It Works?

LoRaWAN defines and controls how a device behaves in a large network. It optimizes various radio parameters in order to reach optimal network capacity and reliability.
The main advantages are the long-range coverage (up to 50km in open areas and up to 10Km in urban environments) and the extremely low power consumption ( up to 10 years battery life). These two elements, together with the simple network topology (a star-of-stars topology in which gateways transmit messages between end-devices and a LoRaWAN® network server, the central element and the heart of the network) makes LoRaWAN® networks deployment really easy and basically 'plug and play'.

Benefits

Why LoraWAN?

Battery

Sensors can last up to 10 years with everyday data transmit compared to cellular connection sensors which last weeks. No wires, just small batteries.

Coverage

One gateway can cover up to 5km in urban areas and up to 20km in open land. Easy for deployment of field sensors.

Stability

LoraWAN is radio frequency network with stable coverage and data transmition. It operates on open frequency, for EU it is 868Mhz.

Data Cost

Compared with 4G or 5G networks we are talking pennies.

Security

Compared to other transmission types like mobile radio, WLAN or wired, it does not offer any disadvantages in terms of security

Penetration

Concrete, steel blocks, glass, indoor, outdoor, even basements - everything is achievable for Lorawan.

The People's Network

Why Helium?

Helium is decentralized LoraWAN network created by people. Random people. It is called "The People's Network" and it is constantly growing.

Everybody can deploy hotspot and start to create coverage. Its secure, much cheaper for operations as 4G or 5G and can be deployed anywhere is internet connection.

Helium network is already used by big network providers or companies who are using it for day-to-day operations.
