- LoRaWAN to redefine the future of IoT
- CyberEye to organize Asia’s largest conference in LoRaWAN
Remember the Chennai water crisis earlier this year? It was a glimpse of a calamity we are running into unless we find solutions to optimize our water usage and storage. Not just water; the case is similar with many aspects of modern life such as energy management, pollution, infrastructure, transportation and traffic — especially in cities.
Countries across the globe are looking at smart solutions to tackle these problems. France implemented LoRaWAN® based smart water network to reduce water leaks in the piping infrastructure. This smart system, which saved almost 1 billion liters of water in a year, precisely detects water leaks through sensors and helps operate the valves remotely.
In the Czech Republic, the LoRaWAN® based network now covers 75% of the country. The smart meters in the country have completely eliminated the need for going home to home and noting meter readings for public utilities like water and electricity. They also help users save up to 30% by analyzing usage trends.
From agriculture to healthcare, LoRaWAN enables IoT to solve many of the serious challenges we are facing today.
What is LoRaWAN?
LoRaWAN® is a cutting-edge Low-Power Wide Area Network(LPWAN) technology protocol that has been designed to wirelessly connect “Things” in regional, national or global networks.
Many of the large-scale IoT applications require long-range connectivity, less data transmission, and optimized battery life. Moreover, the majority of the sensors or IoT devices are required to be placed in remote locations which usually do not have a constant power supply, sufficient connectivity or easy accessibility for manual maintenance.
These requirements limit the traditional networking technologies like cellular, WiFi and others for IoT applications. LoRaWAN solves these challenges by offering multi-kilometer connectivity and years of battery life.
LoRaWAN’s communication range is much greater than traditional cellular networks. Typical LoRaWAN setups can connect devices up to 30 miles apart in rural areas and achieve deep penetration in dense urban areas. These devices optimize power consumption and provide battery life for up to 10 years. Unlike cellular networks, LoRaWAN is unlicensed and open standard — which means it doesn’t depend on any single player.
LoRaWAN offers unprecedented business opportunities
Bn USD in 2018 to a whopping 65 Bn USD by 2023 while LoRaWAN is set to have the lion’s share of 43% out of all LPWAN connections.
With 105 million devices deployed across the globe on every inhabited continent and over 600 known use cases (rapidly growing), LoRaWAN is making all the talk about smart cities a reality.
LoRaWAN in India – The Things Conference India 2019
India is taking initial steps towards smart cities with the governments coming up with policies. With a thriving LoRaWAN ecosystem, we can talk of a smart nation rather than isolated smart cities.
Just as the world is catching up with the disruptive technology LoRaWAN, the second edition of The Things Conference India is being organized to build a bigger, better and stronger LoRaWAN ecosystem in India. The conference is being organized at HICC, Hyderabad on 18th – 19th October 2019.
This Asia’s largest conference on LoRaWAN brings together CEOs, CTOs, governments, industry leaders, startups and tech-enthusiasts to share the knowledge and explore future possibilities in IoT with LoRaWAN.
This conference is presented by CyberEye and powered by iB Hubs in collaboration with The Things Network, a global community building a decentralized network based on LoRaWAN® Visit thethingsconference.in for more information and to book your tickets.
