LoRa Alliance™ Enables Global IoT Roaming and Device Deployment; Convenes in China for 9th All Members Meeting Hosted by ZTE
Latest LoRaWANTM protocol specification simplifies device deployment and use across multiple networks for cost-effective worldwide tracking
Suzhou, China – Oct. 17, 2017 – The LoRa AllianceTM, the global association of companies backing the open LoRaWANTM standard for internet of things (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), released its latest technical specifications to kick off the organization’s 9th All Members Meeting (AMM) taking place in Suzhou, China and hosted by ZTE. New features in the latest specification releases include roaming and separation of backend nodes, which will enable IoT devices to connect to and move between LPWANs around the world. This supports large-scale deployments and enables new global services such as cargo tracking. Such features are critical in the Alliance’s mission to standardize LPWANs globally and drive widespread adoption of the LoRaWAN protocol as the de facto standard for IoT connectivity.
