SIM-less is wanted
The future of the internet is not only to connect people but to connect things to people: Internet of Things (IoT). This includes the development of wireless technologies with large coverage and low costs.
One example for this technology is the development of the LoRa® (Long Range) Transceiver by Semtech Corporation.
We are proud to be the first, that integrate LoRa®- Long Range radio into an Independent Own Network: L-ION.
a good choice for the Internet of Things (IoT)
LoRa® (Long Range) radio can bridge up to 15 km outdoor, in contrast to common wireless technologies like WLAN and Bluetooth that cover up to 100m distance only.
One benefit of Long Range wireless technology is the significant reduction of costs for network structures: no costs for cables or their installation, no costs for radio repeaters or SIM cards. This makes it possible to collect data that have not been addressed yet for reasons of high costs.
Common LoRa® WAN sends data via internet
The architecture of LoRa® WAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) requires an active internet connection that controls the flow of data from end devices to network and application servers. The data of end devices can be accessed by the user only via internet. This requirement of internet connectivity is one disadvantage of LoRa® WAN. Especieally in rural areas this can be a problem: weak or missing internet connections prevent the function of LoRa® WAN. Also data are sent to commonly used internet data bases, this implies safety risks.
