Mobile operators, enterprises, cities and other key Internet of Things (IoT) market players gain access to a wealth of new IoT use cases by combining two unlicensed connectivity technologies, as illustrated in a new white paper released by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) and the LoRa Alliance.

The paper also outlines a number of deployment models and details frontend and back-end integration and security processes. Additionally, it provides several testimonials from organizations regarding the power of their Wi-Fi / LoRaWAN deployments.

“Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN are two important technologies utilizing the unlicensed spectrum, and they already address a large proportion of IoT use cases,” said Tiago Rodrigues, General Manager, WBA. “The Deployment Synergies paper highlights the ways in which these technologies are impacting private-public business models and enabling IoT services, while also identifying ways in which the technologies complement one another and can be used to further expand the Internet of Things.”

Cowritten by members of the WBA IoT Work Group and the LoRa Alliance, input for the paper was provided by a number of companies and organizations, including: BT, Boingo, BSG Wireless, Charter Communications, Connexin, Eleven-X, ER-Telecom, Orange, Tata Communications, Unity Media, Objenious, Semtech, Syniverse, Abeeway, Actility, BSG, Kerlink, Maxima Telecom, Microshare, Orbiwise, Senet, Siradel, Skyhook Multi-Tech, the Centre for Development of Telematics and Digital Catapult.

“The reality is that no one single technology is going to fit the billions of IoT use cases,” said Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. “It is collaborative initiatives like this one with Wi-Fi that will drive innovation to solve important issues, leverage an even broader range of applications and, ultimately, ensure the success of global mass IoT deployments in the future.”

The WBA and LoRa Alliance intend to continue exploring the convergence of Wi-Fi and LoRaWAN technologies. Network operators and equipment manufacturers that are interested in contributing to future reports can contact the WBA for additional information.
