WBA and LoRa Alliance jointly published the Wi-Fi & LoRaWAN® Deployment Synergies white paper which illustrates new business opportunities for Mobile operators, enterprises, cities and other key Internet of Things (IoT) market players that are created when Wi-Fi networks that are traditionally built to support critical IoT are merged with LoRaWAN® networks. This paper summarizes the strengths of each technology, their individual positions in the IoT ecosystem, the way that both technologies can be easily deployed simultaneously and provides testimonials from key industry players.

Going forward, a joint collaboration between WBA and the LoRa Alliance will develop a Hybrid Trial with Wi-Fi & LoRaWAN, incorporating multiple Proofs of Concept (POC).

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Business objectives

  • Provide guidance on hybrid connectivity radio options towards best investment decisions
  • Deployment strategies in terms of addressing IoT use cases covered by either Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN

Target Outcomes

  • Provide best practices driven by deploying trails under Hybrid Wi-Fi & LoRaWAN network
  • Conduct trials in real world test cases which explain the practicalities of network planning, Multi-RAN access points and sensors, and include clear examples of return on investment.
