LoRa Alliance announces global IoT roaming, device deployment LoRaWAN specs: Page 2 of 2

The LoRa Alliance (San Ramon, CA) - the association of companies backing the open LoRaWAN standard for Internet of Things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) - has released its latest technical specifications.

The support for roaming, says the Alliance, will allow for large-scale deployments since vendors will know that their LoRaWAN protocol-based products could potentially operate worldwide. The new backend specification provides the protocols that interconnect servers with distinct roles behind the scenes in the core network, allowing an open choice of vendors for each element of the value chain.

"For the IoT to reach its forecast potential, an ability to deploy devices on a massive scale is a key enabler," says Mulligan. "The enhancements introduced today advance the LoRaWAN protocol, further opening up the ecosystem, enhancing interoperability and expanding the reach of existing LoRaWAN networks."
