In this episode, Ryan breaks down what LPWAN is and what value it provides to IoT solutions.

LPWAN (low-power wide-area network) is a broad term that encompasses various implementations and protocols, both proprietary and open-source, that share common characteristics as the name suggests. Low-power operates on small, inexpensive batteries for years and a wide-area has an operating range that is typically more than 2 km in urban settings.

LPWAN technology works well in situations where devices need to send small amounts of data over a wide area while maintaining battery life for many years. This distinguishes LPWAN from other wireless network protocols like Bluetooth, RFID, cellular M2M, and ZigBee. LPWANs can be the perfect option for a number of IoT applications, but what is LPWAN exactly?
