LoRa Modules

Lora modules are general-purpose SiP’s perfect for sensor integration and speeding up LPWAN integration with an embedded SiP in their design. LoRa modules can achieve a sensitivity of over -137dBm. The high sensitivity combined with the integrated +20dBm power amplifier yields industry leading link budget making it optimal for any low data rate application requiring range or robustness.

Provides low power, long range, high sensitivity communication using spread spectrum. LoRa also provides significant advantages in both blocking and selectivity over conventional modulation techniques, solving the traditional design compromise between range, interference immunity and energy consumption. With UART interface, their LoRa module provides a command set interface that can be used for LoRa and LoRaWAN communication.

Suitable Applications
Ranging across automated meter reading, industrial monitoring and control, intelligent parking, street lighting management, traffic detection and control, irrigation control, forest fire detection, air pollution, earthquake, intelligent tracking.

Femto Gateway LoRaWAN vs Packet Forward System Architecture

SparkLAN's LoRa gateway works in two different modes, one for LoRaWAN, the other is Packet Forward. The major difference is in LoRaWAN mode. The gateway acts as both a network server and a gateway, but in Packet Forward mode it will only pass data through to the gateway and the public network server.
