Abstract

While benefits of IoT are clearly stated the deployment of such devices in a large scale is still held back by technical challenges such as short communication distances. Recent long-range radio technologies such as Semtech’s LoRa are promising to deploy Low Power WAN at a very low-cost for a large variety of applications. The paper describes our proposed low-cost and open IoT gateway & devices for both robust and simple deployment. Quick appropriation & customization by third parties for test-bed deployment is of utmost importance and the whole proposed architecture addresses this issue from the very beginning of the design process.
