Internet of Things and LPWAN


IoT and LPWANs are broad terms to describe networks of wireless devices that use little power and transmit small amounts of data; typically for monitoring and Machine to Machine (M2M) applications.  


Smart metering, asset tracking and sensor monitoring are all examples where LPWANs can be found due to their low power (battery) requirements and low data rate suitability.   Many technology forecasters predict that LPWAN technologies will soon spawn the creation of a new era of  ultraconnectivity between everyday devices, resulting in new markets and the sales of billions of low cost wireless devices. 


There are many LPWAN systems to choose from that are either currently available or soon-to-be available, such as SIGFOX, LoRa and NB-IOT.  Rapid Electronic Solutions can help guide you through the technology choices and develop your next big idea.
