LoRa® is a Global Open Standard
LoRa Alliance™ https://www.lora-alliance.org is a nonprofit organization that coordinates and maintains the LoRaWAN™ standard so that it continues to be an open protocol that is available for anyone to use. LoRaWAN™ is optimized for the Internet of Things and its remote connectivity and remote management.
The name LoRa® is a shortening of "Long Range" which is one of the major advantages of this network. The word WAN means "Wide Area Network", that is, a larger coverage, such as a region, a country or several countries. The LoRa® system consists of two components, one server and one or more gateways depending on the area to be covered. A gateway can collect data from tens of thousands of sensors, which are then passed on to the server and it is via the server you then monitor and controls the traffic of gateways and all sensors.
A large area can be easily covered with only a few gateways, as the transmitter has a range of about 8 km. By applying the "low speed" signal transmission technology (little data, rarely), the sensors battery life is estimated to be up to ten years.
In summary, LoRa® technology stands for: low cost, simplicity, and availability for everyone.
