What is LPWAN - LoRa®?

With the arrival of internet of things (IoT for its acronym in English), new communication technologies were developed under the name of "broad networks of low consumption" (LPWAN for its acronym in English) to meet different needs. The LPWAN provided a platform for the development of different modulations within which LoRa® and the Symphony Link ™ system stand out.

Developed by LinkLabs and incorporated by Tecun in its new line of electric, gas and water energy meters Tecun LoRa®, which brings all the benefits of the LPWAN to the measurement sector.

"The LPWAN represent the most dynamic development and capable of transforming the situation in the market."
David Parker
Senior analyst at Beecham Research

characteristics The development of the LoRa® modulation and the Symphony Link ™ system incorporated in all Tecun products was done under 4 pillars

Distance

Achieve the greatest DISTANCE in the simplest way, which resulted in an average coverage of 5km in densely populated areas and 40km in rural areas without the need to have a line of sight.

Coverage

The development was not only limited to achieving great distances but also a COVERAGE high density that allows to connect up to 250,000 users per gateway

Low consumption

He LOW CONSUMPTION of energy to establish communications both in reception and sending of messages gives us a useful life of more than 60 months for the batteries of our gas and water meters.

Security

An end-to-end data encryption system that meets the highest global standards (AES 128, TLS x509 and TLS orAuth) that provides total SECURITY in the transmission, storage and handling of information.

Why LPWAN - LoRa®?

In the area of ​​communications there will always be technologies that adapt to the needs of the market. With LoRa® we have the perfect union for the measurement sector, low costs and greater coverage.

The star network topology of Lora® allows to reach great distances and obtain a geographical coverage that, until now, no other technology offers, maintaining low prices and that do not require the deployment and maintenance of thousands of nodes.

Coverage 100%
Distance 95%
Transmission latency 80%
Number of stations 10%
Subscription cost to the network 5%
Cost of the RF chip 8%
Bandwidth 5%
Energy consumption 5%
