In 2012, a technology that can process signals which are close to the noise level while operating in license-free bands was born. How does LoRa (Long Range) and LORAWAN work? What are their pros and cons, and usages in real life?
First, let’s take a look at a technology which was developed in the Czech Republic. Introduced to the world fifteen years ago, it uses radio frequency for communication. How does it work exactly and what are its pros and cons? How much does it all cost and what is its best use? And do you know what IQRF Alliance is?
Recently, you may have been hearing words like IoT, narrowband, Sigfox, IQRF, or LoRaWAN. What does all that mean? Well, it means that the time for devices that are usually quite small, connected to the internet, and can work on their own without the need of any interference of a third party, has come. (They’ve been here for a few years now...) These properties are summarized by an acronym LPWAN (low-power wide-area network).
Hackathon Q-TON 2.0 was held at Forum Karlín in Prague during the last weekend in November. It was the second event of its kind held on the premises of the companies Qest automation, UP21 and a few other sister projects. Smart City was the topic, and eMan experts were available to seven teams working on various visions of the city from the not too distant future.
On Monday 27 November we met our colleagues from Plzeň at an event organized by TechHeaven on the DEPO2015 premises. We simply could not miss such an interesting topic as “Latest Trends in Mobile App Development”.
