Communicating with LoRaWAN
In this chapter, you will learn about the network implementation of LoRA, called LoRaWAN, and an infrastructure implementation called The Things Network (TTN). You will also learn about the hardware components that are needed to make creating LoRaWAN networks a possibility. Finally, you will learn how you can communicate with your APIs over LoRaWAN.
By the end of this chapter, you will have set up a gateway device and an end device to send data to TTN.
In this chapter, we are going to cover the following main topics:
- Introduction to LoRa and LoRaWAN
- Working with The Things Network
- Purchasing and setting up radios and gateways
Let’s consider what we will need to complete this chapter.
