Best Low-Power Wide Area Network Solutions

Low-power WAN technologies are designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) networking environments. With decreased power requirements, longer range and lower cost than a mobile network, LPWANs are thought to enable a much wider range of M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, which have been constrained by budgets and power issues. LPWAN data transfer rates are very low, as is the power consumption of connected devices. LPWAN enables connectivity for networks of devices that require less bandwidth than what the standard home equipment provides. Furthermore, LPWANs can operate at a lower cost, with greater power efficiency. The networks can also support more devices over a larger coverage area than consumer mobile technologies and have better bi-directionality. The need for technology such as LPWAN is much greater in industrial IoT, civic and commercial applications. In these environments, the huge numbers of connected devices can only be supported if communications are efficient and power costs low.

SIGFOX is an operated telecommunication network, dedicated to the Internet of Things. It is an operated network, meaning you do not have to handle any installation or maintenance operations. SIGFOX...
The world needs a public global network, like the internet. And Sigfox is just that.
LoRaWAN is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated Things in the regional, national or global network. LoRaWAN targets key requirements of Internet of Things such as secure bi-directional communication, mobility, and localization services. This standard will provide seamless interoperability among smart Things without the need of complex local installations and gives back the freedom to the user, developer, businesses enabling the rollout of ...
WAVIoT is a wide-area, low-power wireless system that allows end users to employ a radio module to communicate with a gateway. The specification uses star topology networks, in which a set of end nodes communicate with a single gateway. Each star is centrally managed by the gateway at its center, where it interacts with the modules in several modes, depending on the user’s need for the application. This flexibility allows for a number of technical requirements to be met quickly, which is us...
The Machine Network is a network of wireless connectivity designed exclusively for machine-to-machine communication built on the robust and powerful RPMA technology. The Machine Network, engineered and built by Ingenu, is the first such network across the United States and the world dedicated entirely to connecting the Internet of Things.
ThingPark Wireless uses free industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio bands allowing for a low-cost roll-out of industrial M2M and IoT applications. Objects connected via 3G and 4G networks require local power sources while ThingPark Wireless allows for battery-powered sensors with a battery life of several years.
NWAVE uses Ultra Narrow Band (UNB) radio technology combined with advanced Software Defined Radio (SDR) techniques to provide its communications network for the Internet of Things. Ultra Narrow Band, which operates in internationally available and unlicensed Sub-1Ghz radio spectrum (ISM bands), allows for excellent signal propagation, giving exceptional in-building penetration and range while consuming very little power. Nwave’s advanced demodulation techniques allow our network to co-exist...
Weightless-P is an ultra high-performance LPWAN connectivity technology for the Internet of Things. It will use a narrow band modulation scheme offering a bi-directional communications capability to enable unrivaled quality of service (QoS) and add on functionality. The Standard will provide fully acknowledged 2-way communications offering both uplink and downlink capabilities and best in class QoS required for the stringent industrial IoT sector. Weightless-P will offer the promised performa...
