Intelligently networked with LoRa and LoRaWAN – how do you build your own wireless network?
It is quite easy to build your own wireless network under the standard of the future, as LoRa is an open, non-profit system of the LoRa Alliance. Only the chip technology required to transmit data packets is provided by Semtech.
At the end of the network are the end devices that work on the basis of LoRa. These include, for example:
Gateways are installed in the immediate vicinity of the end devices, which receive the data packets from the sensors and measuring devices. Now it is the task of the individual gateways to forward the received information to the associated network server. The data between a gateway and a network server is transmitted via HTTPS or VPN.
The server's task is to select the best gateway for the downlink message and to make the data available to the associated applications. In addition, redundant information of the individual gateways of the network is filtered out and removed, which can occur during the transmission of multiple information packets.
