Experience the benefits of low power networks anywhere

Long Range Wide Area Networks (LoRaWAN) are a type of low power wide area network (LPWAN) that offer significant advantages in connecting multiple data producers, using low power, over distances of up to 10km. However, in remote areas without connectivity, they can only function as a local network, meaning the power of IoT is restricted to only those people who can access the network locally. 

Inmarsat’s LoRaWAN service changes all of this and allows you to connect Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints at low cost and low power consumption, ensuring that data can be optimised for transmission and backhauled over Inmarsat’s BGAN M2M or IDP satellite connectivity services. In deploying our optimised LoRaWAN technology in conjunction with our core connectivity services, we ensure that data from IoT endpoints can be transmitted and received, no matter where they are. 

Service plans

We offer a variety of connectivity plans ranging from very low message usage (max 1 a day) up to a report a minute (up to 1440 a day) to ensure you are able to get the data you want, when you need it. For most industrial IoT applications a report every 15 minutes or so is the recommended plan.

WHERE LORAWAN MAKES A DIFFERENCE

  • Agriculture for a wide range of monitoring applications including nutrients, soil temperature and moisture levels or keeping tabs on water quality
  • Mining for monitoring the status of tailings storage facilities (TSFs), resource and pipeline monitoring
  • Transport and logistics to track end-to-end to reduce supply chain losses or monitor vehicles to prevent theft
  • Utilities for remote monitoring of gas and water meters

FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF LORAWAN

Features

  • Global availability: Operating over the Inmarsat L-band global satellite and ground network, we ensure that you have access to ubiquitous network coverage, even in the most remote locations.
  • Long-range capability: Our LoRaWAN service provides long-range communication between sensors and base stations, resulting in networks with 2-3x times fewer base stations compared to cellular.
  • Indoor penetration: Our LoRaWAN service allows deep indoor penetration and has the ability to reach sensors monitoring water or gas meters located underground.
  • Energy-efficient: LoRaWAN has the lowest energy footprint, while enabling long life device autonomy. 

Benefits

  • Reliability: The low latency and high reliability of our L-band services holds a distinct advantage in applications such as remote asset monitoring that require reliable, always-on connectivity.
  • Low cost: With no existing infrastructure required, our LoRaWAN solution is the most cost-effective IoT solution for a wide range of industries.
  • Secure: LoRaWAN security design adheres to state-of-the-art principles, using standard, well-vetted algorithms and end-to-end security.
