LoRaWAN Designed Your Way
Laird’s growing Sentrius™ LPWAN ecosystem of long-range IoT solutions leverages years of RF expertise to enable secure, low-power, long-range Internet of Things (IoT) sensor deployment easily using LoRaWAN technology.
The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks. This protocol targets key IoT requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.
Laird’s portfolio of innovative solutions – which includes the Sentrius™ RG1xx Gateway, RS1xx Sensors, RM1xx LoRa + BLE modules, and LPWAN antennas – gives developers flexibility and freedom to create everything from a single standalone node to a complete end-to-end IoT network that balances throughput and range while using minimal power. For more details, see our Sentrius line card.

Why Choose Laird Connectivity?
High Performance, Unparalleled Flexibility
LPWAN technologies can be thought of in terms of three primary characteristics: power consumption, range and cost. LPWAN is meant to provide connectivity over long ranges utilizing minimal power, but figures vary among competing solutions. LoRa® Class A nodes like the RM1xx and RS1xx achieve either a maximum range (Up to 15 km, around 10 miles), a maximum data rate (~21.9 kbps) or a balance of each as is required by the application. Likewise, when compared to LTE-M cellular solutions, LoRaWAN provides the same or greater range at a lower price point.
Enterprise Security with a Three-level Authentication Scheme
LoRaWAN employs a scheme of device, application, and network security keys to authenticate end nodes and secure their traffic. This three-level approach ensures that only trusted devices can interface with your device. The end result is public and private networks with heightened intelligence and the ability to screen and authorize just the nodes you want to participate on your network.
Where other competing solutions require you connect through existing gateways maintained by carriers for a fee, LoRa® uniquely allows you to connect to either an open (public) network or to your own closed (private) network. Owning the complete infrastructure means not relying on a provider to continue supporting your LPWAN offering, eliminating monthly subscription costs, and total end-to-end data control.
