Smart Cities

LoRaWAN smart city promises the pervasive connectivity that IoT infrastructure requires. The next demand is to keep the network and its management as simple as possible. In smart city connectivity, this means smooth operation across vast distances where low capacity is required. Smart cities include many such areas.

  • Smart traffic
  • Public transportation
  • Waste management,
  • Energy consumption tracking,
  • Environmental metering,
  • Parking
  • Lighting monitoring,
  • Asset tracking
  • Fire detection systems and alarms
  • People tracking

All of these are pillars of the smart city concept. And none of them necessarily requires large volumes of data. Small sensor data packages can be used for alarm, triggering, and monitoring purposes. Sounds like a perfect task for LoRaWAN, which is very battery-efficient yet very slow for sending heavy files.
