LoRa is a wireless communication technology developed and standardized by the LoRa Alliance™ – of which ST is member of the board – to enable low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) required for machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. LoRa technology provides:
- Long range: >15 km / 9 mi
- Low power: 5-10 year expected battery lifetime
- Low cost: from end-node sensor cost to upfront infrastructure investment
- Security: with embedded end-to-end AES-128 data encryption
- Geolocation: enabling indoor/outdoor tracking without GPS
ST offers several affordable and easy-to-use hardware tools dedicated to help evaluate and develop LoRa-based solutions.
The STEVAL-STRKT01 LoRa® IoT tracker
In this video Michael Andre, CEO of WIZZILAB presents their products to us, a triple stack solution for LPWAN technologies, including Sigfox, LoraWan and the Dash7 alliance which leverages many products from STMicroelectronics.
The STM32 Nucleo pack for LoRa™ technology and high-performance FSK/OOK RF transceiver modem (P-NUCLEO-LRWAN1) is a development tool to learn and develop solutions based on LoRa™ and/or FSK/OOK technologies.
This video will present LoRa Discovery Kit. It will be based on LoRa Nucleo Pack video extended with Network and Application server functionalities. It will detail how to configure, compile and flash software to Discovery Kit. It will show how to connect Discovery Kit to gateway, then gateway to network server, then application server to network. It will demonstration how the full chain works : IoT node, gateway, network & application
