Why LoRa®?

The steep rise in forecasted connected devices means that for the companies, businesses, campuses, and municipalities considering wide area IoT deployments, the question is no longer if these implementations will be initiated, but how.

Among a number of wide area IoT network solutions, LoRa offers distinct advantages to consider when choosing a connectivity provider.

The cornerstone technology powering the Internet of Things, LoRa enables smart solutions to transmit data efficiently and economically. More than 50MM devices use LoRa to fill the gaps left by cellular and WiFi: its technology is low power and long range, and supports indoor and outdoor applications, public, private, or hybrid.

Currently active in 49 countries and supported by the LoRa Alliance, LoRa is the simplest and most accessible solution for anyone looking to activate technology quickly and securely, whether in dense urban environments or rural settings. The LoRa ecosystem is enabling tomorrow’s technology, today.

The Connectivity Gap



Features and Benefits

LoRa Technology has revolutionized IoT by enabling data communication over a long range while using very little power. When connected to a non-cellular LoRa network, LoRa devices accommodate a vast range of IoT applications by transmitting packets with important information. LoRa fills the technology gap of cellular and Wi-Fi/BLE based networks that require either high bandwidth or high power, or have a limited range or inability to penetrate deep indoor environments.







Best-in-Class IoT Management Platform

LoRa is an open, global standard for secure enterprise-grade IoT connectivity. Deployed by 80+ major carriers worldwide, LoRa has emerged as the de-facto global network protocol for wireless IoT connectivity.
