In rural areas, the LoRa range can be as long as 50 kilometers. LoRa has become the standard wireless platform for WAN IoT, connecting 50 million devices in more than 100 countries across a wide range of “smart” applications from homes, buildings and cities to agriculture and, of course, metering. Semtech has done a great job of leveraging the LoRa technology that they purchased for a mere $5,000,000. READ MORE
