Application of LoRaWAN for smart metering : an experimental verification

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) market is generating a lot of buzz, and different Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies such as Sigfox, Ingenu or LoRaWAN are making waves in the industry. The speed at which nation-wide networks based on these technologies are being rolled out is among the fastest ever seen on the European continent. In this paper we discuss the aptitude of a LoRaWAN network to capture data from smart energy meters. Special attention is given to the communication requirements of different uses cases for smart metering, and the benefits and drawbacks of LoRaWAN are illustrated. Additionally, a brief overview of the most prominent LPWAN technologies is presented and a small field test is conducted.
