Smart Industrial Control
Industrial operations can benefit from the deployment of IoT-connected sensors for various always-on monitoring functions. Due to the long range, low power, and long battery life of LoRa®-based devices, sensors in manufacturing plants or mobile industries can relay critical data to a LoRaWAN® network where it can be analyzed and businesses operations can be optimized.
