Lora (Long Range) is the physical layer utilized to achieve Low Power, Wide Area Networks (LPWANs). The LoRaWAN Certified™ Program ensures the certified devices to meet the LoRaWAN™ standard and interoperate with other LoRaWAN™ devices.
As the Authorized Test House (ATH) accredited by LoRa Alliance, Allion provides LoRaWAN™ certification program aiming to ensure your certified products compliant with the LoRaWAN™ specification and deliver quality and confidence to high-end users with a variety of IoT applications.
LoRaWAN™ Certification Program
LoRaWAN™ defines the communication protocol and network architecture, which offers long range transmission and also optimizes the battery lifetime of a node, the network capacity, the data security and diverse applications of network. LoRaWAN™ , deployed in the “star-of-stars topology” network architecture, allows the end nodes to send uplink transmission to/receive downlink transmission from multiple gateways, instead of a specific one. The gateways will send and synchronize data information to a central network server or a cloud server.
