- With the rapid growth of IoT spanning into diverse application areas, It will be hard for a single communication technology to address all the requirements. This white paper covers new non-cellular technologies that are being deployed globally today, in addition to emerging cellular standards. IoT is impacting all aspects of daily life. Smart homes, connected cars, smart grids, healthcare, street lights, trees, live objects are being connected to Internet.
All these applications use real time data from connected things, to improve processes and bringing in cost savings. Critical factors determining success of such systems are reliability, quality of experience, performance and high availability.

I think the LORAWAN techology will be very helpful in enabling the IOT applications which can be connected to various gateways with the help of hardware and application level softwares.LORAWAN consumes ultra low power energy at the cost of decreasing the speed of communication.It can be helpful in areas where we dont want to transmit or recieve data at very high speed like 1 oer 2 Mbps but we expect the speed in the range of kilobytes/sec.ARM microcontrollers are preferred to be used with LORA.

LoraWan enables on spot gateways and a standalone Lora server on high power efficient modules providing a battery life for 10 years and yet giving you a Wi-Fi like network on low level frequency range, It basically compensates frequency for increasing the area of coverage which ranges to about 1km if you consider very low packet loss which is very required for automation in industry. LoRa has its own globally accepted protocols and hence for M2M connections all over the production house i feel LoRa will be the best. LoRa has a speed of about 500kbps which reduces to 200kbps or a bit less using the LoRa Protocols which is enough for industrial standards.
Such networks can also be built on RF frequencies but 2.4GHz band frequencies are very vulnerable to industrial noise. UHF tags would be better but then increasing the frequency will reduce the area a coverage exponentially which is a bigger drawback in industry.
