Frequently asked questions about LoRa

What is LoRa?

LoRa WAN stands for Low Range Wide Area Network. The network consists of transmitters, which together form the network, and sensors that send their measurement data through the network. Characteristic of a LoRa network is a lot of range (ten to fifteen kilometers per transmitter), but little bandwidth (a few kilobytes per second). KPN's LoRa network is a new network for IoT solutions and an addition to the existing 2G, 3G and 4G networks. The network removes important barriers in terms of consumption of energy to connect countless devices to the internet.

How does it exactly works?

LoRa sensors themselves do not require an internet connection (so no simcard is required), but communicate independently with KPN's LoRa network. Moreover, they are very energy efficient (a battery or solar cell is sufficient for years of use), can be quickly registered on the network and inexpensive to purchase. Another advantage is that LoRa devices use a free frequency.

Why LoRa?

Lora is cost efficiënt, due to the low complexity of a LoRa module the costs are reduced to a minimum. One module is also very energy efficiënt and can even send data for 5 years on only 2 batteries. The KPN LoRa network can determine the position of the device with an accuracy of 50 to 150 meters.

LoRa examples

Practical examples of customers who implement LoRa from Thingsdata for: tracking and tracing glass racks, tracking and tracing containers, monitoring parking spaces whether they are free or occupied, unlocking indoor climate sensors and monitoring the availability of workplaces.
