About LoRaWAN

Long Range Wide Area Network, abbreviated LoRaWAN®, is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol specification. LoRaWAN is designed to wirelessly connect devices, or “things”, to the Internet – making LoRaWAN an important aspect of the Internet of Things (IoT).

LoRaWAN is the technology on which Everynet’s national networks are built. Operating in 10 countries around the world, our networks are open, highly resilient and entirely server agnostic.

Key LoRaWAN Characteristics

LoRaWAN is an unlicensed, non-proprietary, open IoT standard delivering a range of benefits.

Low-cost chipsets and networks

Long range connectivity

Long battery life – up to 10 years autonomy

Bi-directional communication

Flexible – offering mobility and LoRa P2P

Secure – E2E data encryption, high resistance to jammers, mutual authentication

Open standard – available at all levels of the LPWA ecosystem

Immunity to interference in the unlicensed band

Standardized to ensure network-to-device interoperability

Rapid implementation and scaling

The ultra-low cost, low power nature of LoRaWAN technology makes it ideal for a variety of applications designed to increase efficiency, reduce costs and enhance environmental sustainability efforts. Just a few of the key LoRaWAN applications include:
