LoRa is a proprietary, chirp spread spectrum (CSS) radio modulation technology for LPWAN used by LoRaWAN.
LoRa is a patented (EP2763321 from 2013 and US7791415 from 2008) technology developed by Cycleo (Grenoble, France) and acquired by Semtech in 2012. LoRa uses license-free sub gigahertz radio frequency bands like 169 MHz, 433 MHz, 868 MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (North America).
A Semtech innovation, LoRa Technology offers a very compelling mix of long range, low power consumption and a very secure data transmission using end-to-end encryption. A variety of public and private networks using this technology can provide the necessary coverage that is far more greater in ranger compared to that of the current existing cellular networks.
It is easy to plug into the existing infrastructure and offers a solution to serve battery-operated IoT applications.
At Sensorstream we aim to use this LoRa technology to integrate our sensors into everyday life for the benefit of society.
