You Are The Network, Let’s Build This Thing Together.
What is LoRaWAN and The Things Network?
In a sentence, LoRaWAN is a high range, Low Power, Low bandwidth network for sensors, with ranges of up to 10 km and battery lives of up to 10 years per device. It is a cost effective way of collecting data in real time and enhancing it with software utilizing Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, making you and you business/organization smarter.
The Things Network started off with a Kickstarter in 2015 when founder Weinke set out determined to create a decentralised, crowd-sourced network for the internet of things based on LoRa. The kickstarter was a success and in early 2017 The Things Network realised it’s goal of creating an affordable gateway and a supporting platform for creating a global network with the release of its own gateway and the launch of its platform.
Today The Things Network operates in 84 countries and has over 45,000 active users and that community has deployed almost 5,000 gateways. This is a rapidly growing community with hundreds of market ready devices available to buy. The Things Network is operating in the UK in partnership with Digital Catapult – this means that over 400 gateways across the England are live right now. There are more in Wales and are starting to spring up in Scotland too. The Things Network is already being used in the UK to monitor water quality on site in medical facilities and research laboratories. It’s being used to track water levels to create a warning system in Oxford. It’s tracking lorries across Europe.
