Lora (Long Range) is the physical layer utilized to achieve Low Power, Wide Area Networks (LPWANs). The “LoRaWAN Certified™ Program” ensures the certified devices to meet the LoRaWANTM standard and interoperate with other LoRaWANTM devices.
As the Authorized Test House (ATH) accredited by LoRa Alliance, Allion provides LoRaWANTM certification program aiming to ensure your certified products compliant with the LoRaWANTM specification and deliver quality and confidence to high-end users with a variety of IoT applications.
LoRaWANTM Certification Program
LoRaWANTM defines the communication protocol and network architecture, which offers long range transmission and also optimizes the battery lifetime of a node, the network capacity, the data security and diverse applications of network. LoRaWANTM , deployed in the “star-of-stars topology” network architecture, allows the end nodes to send uplink transmission to/receive downlink transmission from multiple gateways, instead of a specific one. The gateways will send and synchronize data information to a central network server or a cloud server.
