More about LoraWAN
The LoRaWAN network architecture is implemented in a star-of-stars topology in which gateways relay messages between end devices and a central network server. The gateways are connected to the network server via standard IP connections and act as a transparent bridge, simply converting RF packets into IP packets and vice versa. The wireless communication takes advantage of the Long Range characteristics of the physical LoRa layer, allowing a single-hop connection between the end device and one or more gateways. All devices are capable of bidirectional communication and there is support for multicast addressing groups to efficiently use spectrum during tasks such as Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) upgrades or other mass distribution messages.
