Extending LoRaWAN Coverage using the Relay Feature

Thior Santander, Actility and Davide Orifiamma Semtech collaborate to show how the recently announced Relay feature works to extend LoRaWAN coverage for metering, utilities, smart cities and industrial applications during their joint presentation. Relay allows for battery-operated, easy-to-deploy network coverage extensions at a fraction of the cost of adding additional gateways. This allows LoRaWAN to achieve excellent coverage in use cases requiring deep indoor or underground coverage, or relay data on satellite connected LoRaWAN devices within proximity.
