Your LPWAN Network Your Way
In the wireless communication technology space, LoRaWAN is the only LPWAN that offers multiple network deployment models to solve myriad IoT business applications globally. Deployment options include Public, Private, Hybrid and Community networks.
Private LoRaWAN Networks
Private LoRaWAN networks give customers the freedom to deploy their own gateways, provide their own backhaul, and deploy sensors in range of those gateways.
LoRaWAN Private networks are often used by large enterprises because:
• You place the network where you want it
• You build the network when you want it
• You do not have to share with other users, and therefore have complete control of traffic
• You are not constrained by network operator limitations e.g. application that uses a large number of downlinks
Public LoRaWAN Networks
In contrast, public networks allow a customer to pay a network operator to connect its sensors without deploying gateways with backhaul in-house.
LoRaWAN Public Networks are a great solution for many LPWAN IoT use cases because customers can simply use a network that already exists, but public networks are not always available in the exact location needed.
Hybrid LoRaWAN Networks
Hybrid networks allow a customer to move between public and private networks, which is useful especially in use cases involving asset tracking where a sensor literally moves out of range of one private network while traveling towards another.
Community LoRaWAN Networks
Community networks are decentralized networks comprised of components hosted by individuals that offer connectivity to the public.
With LoRaWAN networks, you can have “Your LPWAN Network Your Way” – whenever and wherever you want it.
