What Is Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) Wireless Communication? - Utilization
Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) is wireless communication technology that features low power consumption and wide-area and long-distance communication. Although the amount of communication data is small, communication over 10 km is possible. LPWA is attracting attention as the fundamental technology behind the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies in the smartification of factories, logistics, agriculture, housing, life infrastructure, and other facilities. We explain in this article LPWA utilization examples and Murata Manufacturing’s LPWA modules.
