LoRa and LoRaWAN…Why The Difference Matters

Share This Post

LoRa and LoRaWAN are two related but distinct technologies that play crucial roles in the realm of low-power, wide-area networking (LPWAN).

LoRa, short for Long Range, refers to the physical layer technology developed by Semtech Corporation, enabling long-range communication with low power consumption, ideal for applications like IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) communication.

On the other hand, LoRaWAN, which stands for Long Range Wide Area Network, encompasses the network protocol built on top of LoRa technology, facilitating the establishment of large-scale IoT networks with features like bidirectional communication, secure data transmission, and efficient management of devices.

Understanding the nuances between LoRa and LoRaWAN is essential for deploying robust and efficient LPWAN solutions tailored to specific use cases and requirements.

Our handy graphic below highlights the basic differences between the two technologies, you can also get stuck into the detail in our previous article which you can read here.
