LoRaWAN has become the de facto standard for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) worldwide, with over 50% of all non-cellular LPWA connections to feature LoRa by 2026 (ABI Research). The open LoRaWAN protocol offers an efficient, flexible and economical solution to real-world problems and can be complementary to other network technologies.
IoT Connectivity: Where LPWANs Fit
The cost and functionality gap between cellular and local-area networks has been filled by LPWAN technologies, which enable low power, long range sensor applications where only small amounts of data are required.
It is estimated that more than half of all IoT solutions will be best suited for LPWAN connectivity.
