AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN

Connect, manage, and secure LoRaWAN devices at scale

AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN is a fully managed feature that enables customers to connect wireless devices that use low-power, long-range wide area network (LoRaWAN) protocol with the AWS cloud. Using AWS IoT Core, customers can now setup a private LoRaWAN network by connecting their own LoRaWAN devices and gateways to the AWS cloud - without developing or operating a LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS).

Benefits

Eliminate the need to develop or operate an LNS

AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN eliminates the undifferentiated development work and operational burden required to setup and manage an LNS and associated infrastructure. AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN manages your device and gateway connections to the cloud, thus accelerates the network set-up time.

Reduce gateway and device onboarding friction

AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN supports open-source gateway-LNS protocol software called LoRa Basics Station. The AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN gateway qualification program enables customers to source pre-tested LoRaWAN gateways and developer kits that meet the required LoRa Basics Station specification. Customers can also buy any off-the-shelf sensor or actuator compliant with LoRaWAN specification 1.0.2, 1.0.3, and 1.1 and connect it to AWS IoT Core without any requirement to modify embedded software. This creates a plug-and-play experience that reduces the device on-boarding friction.

Accelerate IoT application development

AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN has built-in integration with AWS IoT Core Rules Engine so device data is automatically routed and transformed according to preset rules. This streamlines the process for application developers to translate proprietary LoRaWAN binary messages, so device data can be more easily integrated with cloud services. It also reduces the need to provide technical assistance to internal teams building applications on top of AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN.

Reduce the cost of connecting and managing LoRaWAN device fleets at scale

With transparent, pay-as-you-go pricing with no monthly commitments, you can cost-effectively and reliably scale your LoRaWAN device fleets.

How it works

LoRaWAN How it Works

Use cases

Asset tracking and monitoring

Industrial customers need to monitor the performance of equipment to ensure it is operating effectively and to predict when it requires maintenance to avoid costly equipment issues and reduce gaps in production. Long-range connectivity has deep in-building penetration suitable for industrial facilities. AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN can be used to connect these devices to the cloud and AWS IoT services, like AWS IoT SiteWise.

Connected buildings and city systems

Real estate property owners and managers of commercial and residential buildings are increasingly deploying automation and remote monitoring solutions, ranging from lighting control, motion sensors or temperature monitors. These smart building solutions often require long-range connectivity to transmit device data through multiple thick walls and ceilings. AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN can be used to connect these sensors and actuators to the cloud and integrate them into smart building applications.

Equipment monitoring and predictive maintenance
