LoRaWAN is a long-range and low-power communication system used to connect physical devices to servers. It is a set of physical and logical protocols used to connect ultra low bandwidth devices across a large area.

This talk first gives an overview the technology used, why you would use it, and giving some examples of where it is being used today. It then follows the challenges of rolling out a regional LoRaWAN network.

This is an accessible technical talk. It contains technical information of interest to those wanting to work with this technology, but it should be understandable by those who are less technical.

The speaker has been connecting hardware to the internet for over two decades and is a member of the team rolling out of a regional LoRaWAN network.
