The Opportunity

Semtech’s LoRa wireless technology offers a very compelling mix of long range, low power consumption and secure data transmission. Propelled by the open network specifications from the LoRa Alliance and backing of the likes of IBM and Cisco, LoRaWAN networks are being built rapidly across the globe.

The open, diverse and thriving global LoRaWAN ecosystem provides many research and development opportunities. Whether it’s technical, operational or applications, there are many areas to investigate. It’s easy for academics, students and researchers to get hands-on using KotahiNet’s LoRaWAN network.
