This comparative study shows real-world measurements and theoretical analyses, showcasing the unparalleled performance of mioty over LoRa.
mioty (My Internet of Things) and LoRa (Long Range) are wireless communication technologies designed for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications. These technologies aim to provide long-range, low-power communication for connecting a wide range of devices in IoT networks. This white paper compares the performance of mioty and LoRa.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS developed mioty, which uses a patented technology called Telegram Splitting to enhance reliability and scalability in large-scale IoT deployments. Designed for challenging environments with high interference, mioty suits industrial applications where robust communication is crucial.
LoRa, known for its open standard, has the ability to cover long distances while consuming minimal power. It operates in the unlicensed spectrum, making it suitable for various IoT applications, such as smart cities, agriculture, and industrial IoT.
This comparative study of mioty vs. LoRa shows real-world measurements and theoretical analyses, showcasing the unparalleled performance of mioty.
Urban areas demand high network capacity, and mioty delivers. With a staggering 44,000 packets per minute at a 1% packet loss rate, mioty offers 1100 times greater capacity. Even at the maximum robustness level, LoRa’s throughput can’t compete.
Some of the key results of the study include:
- Capacity is about scalability. Field trials often miss this crucial point. The study reveals that deploying many devices can expose the capacity limitations of other LPWAN networks.
- Interference is a reality, and mioty competes with unmatched robustness. In interference-heavy areas like urban environments, mioty’s communication range outshines LoRa’s.
- For mobile applications, mioty stands out once more. It maintains effective communication even at speeds exceeding 160 km/h, while LoRa’s capabilities are limited to lower speeds.
- Energy efficiency is a key factor, and mioty’s performance is noteworthy. Its extended battery life surpasses that of LoRa, offering over three times the longevity with the same battery.
