Earlier this year, Cisco released Cisco LoRaWAN solution 2.0. Cisco developed a technology that complies with LoRa technology and LoRaWAN specification because they wanted to help companies connect things cost-effectively. The Cisco LoRaWAN solution 2.0 addresses problems related to asset tracking. 2.0 added support for native geolocation, which allows the gateways to approximate a sensor’s location. Using LoRaWAN instead of GPS suboptimal will save companies money.
The technology entered the mainstream a year and a half ago after Amsterdam implemented it citywide; however, many in the United States remain in the dark about it (and LoRa), though experts expect the number of adoptions to increase by 2020 when the smart cities market will be worth $1.56 trillion, and as companies seek more scalable, cost-effective, and reliable wireless networks.
In the new episode of Aspirations, Cody Harris and Kyle Turk offer a brief introduction to LoRaWAN, its impact on the Internet of Things, as well as its main business drivers and verticals.
