The LoRa® network is extremely energy efficient, at the same time it offers very good network coverage. The low bandwidth of up to 50 kbit/s is sufficient to transfer information in an energy saving way and save network costs. The devices can get by for up to 15 years with a battery-operated power supply depending on the application. One advantage is bi-directional data transfer, which further extends the capabilities of LoRa® technology. The bandwidth is thus available in the up-link and down-link. The collection of data, but also the active control of devices, is thus very easy.
