LoRaWAN: There's Fun to be Had at the Low End of the Bandwidth Range

Time 12/12/19 12:00PM-12:10PM

Room Grand Ballroom D/E (5th)

Session Abstract

One hundred gig, 400 gig, HDR and NDR Infiniband.the high bandwidth technology gets all the attention. But there’s fun to be had at the other end of the spectrum. Instead of gigbits and terabits per second, think kilobits. We’re not talking about bring back Hayes modems, but an emerging wireless technology to support sensing and distributed node applications.

Long Range Wide Area Networking (LoRaWAN) is widely deployed in Europe and is growing in the United States.

This talk will introduce the concepts behind LoRa and LoRaWAN by placing it in the space of Low Power Wide Area Networking Technologies (LPWAN). What problems are being solved by this technology? What are the alternatives? We’ll dive into the fundamentals of LoRa and discuss a real-world implementation for environmental sensing in the nation’s capital.

The goal is to introduce the technology and possibly build a community of campuses where LoRaWAN is available and a base of knowledge to support each other.
