LoRa, NB-IoT Tussle in the LPWAN IoT Arena | Light Reading
Despite the advent of narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), there are still many carriers around the world supporting the LoRa (long range) protocol for low-power wide-area network (LPWANs) applications like trash-level and water sensors.
The LoRa Alliance says that there were more than 100 public and private LoRa networks deployed worldwide as of January 2019. Amongst the biggest LoRa supporters are Orange in Europe and Comcast in the US.
Comcast said it is deploying LoRa in the Universal Parks and Resorts in Orlando to “quickly test and launch IoT projects designed to increase operational efficiency in the park.” LoRa will be used to monitor temperature, monitor energy consumption and track assets across the parks.
