With the new year comes many new opportunities, you may be looking to upgrade your business into a smart business using LoRaWAN sensors to aid in your decision making.
If you have ever wondered what LoRaWAN is then look no further. We here at Alliot are aware that in the modern world, time is precious. Information needs to be delivered fast and be responsive, much like a LoRaWAN network. That’s why we have created a short informative video to explain LoRaWAN just for you. So watch out for our next installments in our video series on youtube as well as our social media.
What is LoRaWAN? LoRaWAN stands for Long Range Wide Area Network and is a communication protocol designed to operate over LoRa radio. Which is essentially a Long-range modulation to get information through the air over long ranges whilst using very little power.
What makes up a LoRaWAN network? Typically a LoRaWAN Network consists of lots of devices or sensors, a number of radio gateways and a Network Server that enables all components to communicate. These connected devices gather small packets of data which are then transmitted via the cloud and presented in a user-friendly way, most commonly by a dashboard.
So why choose to use LoRaWAN? Working with a LoRaWAN network offers many benefits with improved range of sensors with distances up to 10+ Kilometers. As well as being a wireless system with little set up which can remotely be done via a dashboard. LoRaWAN networks also integrate seamlessly into existing network infrastructure with plug and play features.#
What’s more LoRaWAN sensors are powered by internal batteries allowing for reduced maintenance as data is transmitted periodically, helping to save battery life. With batteries typically lasting multiple years, some lasting 5+ years!
And as you know lower maintenance means cheaper costs and less headaches for you. LoRaWAN & Alliot help you with all of this & more!

We’re thrilled to announce that we are now an official distributor of MultiTech LoRaWAN gateways! Available for shipping throughout the UK and Europe, we’ve summed up MultiTech’s range and how they can help you to bring your IoT projects to life.
Who are MultiTech?
2020 marks MultiTech’s 50th Anniversary, so they’ve been around a while! Formed in 1970, MultiTech originally developed and sold acoustic couplers. Since then they’ve developed micro computers, modems and embedded products to name just a few. In 2008, they began to develop a new class of machine-to-machine applications which leads us to today where MultiTech have developed a wide range of industrial IoT devices.
As fellow members of the LoRa Alliance, it’s also great to know that MultiTech played a fundamental role in the development of the technology itself! For anyone looking to brush up on their LoRaWAN knowledge, check out MultiTech’s Resources.
