Why Swisscom Low Power Network for IoT
IoT solutions have different requirements which is why Swisscom’s IoT portfolio offers all the necessary tools to aid in the development and implementation of your Internet of Things (IoT) Solution.
The Swisscom Low Power Network is a complementary network that delivers the ideal communication platform for Internet of Things applications that require the transmission of small units of information as well as mobile devices and objects that do not have access to fixed or a large energy source. Experts anticipate that the Low Power Network will be the key driver for exponential growth in the area of IoT applications.
The Internet of Things applications could have an impact of $11.1 trillion per year by the year 2025
What is LPN?
The Low Power Network (LPN) is designed for the transmission of small amounts of data independent of the electrical network and forms the basis for smart cities, energy-efficient buildings, machine-to-machine networking and an abundance of digital applications. The Swisscom Low Power Network is based on the open LoRaWAN industry standard lora-alliance.org.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Features & Benefits of Swisscom LPN
LPN is a two-way wireless solution that complements M2M cellular infrastructure, and provides a low-cost way to connect battery operated and mobile devices to the network infrastructure.
The minimal energy requirements for communication result in 5-10 year extended battery lifetime which means reduced infrastructure maintenance.
Moving objects can remain perfectly connected whether momentarily or consistently mobile.
The Low Power Network offers a narrow bandwidth, which gives it a wide reach as well as energy-efficient transmission and reduces networking costs.
The LPN LoRa ecosystem is made up of leading organizations with both regional and global scale and include hardware vendors, solution partners, integrators and strategic partners.
Mobile devices and objects can easily integrate a small sensor (without a SIM card or wiring) into an object.
Swisscom extends their network expertise to the LPN to assure customers experience the same quality and reliability that they expect from our traditional networks.
I was extremely impressed when we tried out The Swisscom Low Power Network (LPN). The LPN can provide a very simple solution to certain problems that we have as a public authority. The attractive price/performance ratio also plays an important role.
