this new business framework field the LoRaWan should be network-based, building the property since the beginning of the year, and already covers the entire city. The abbreviation stands for "Long Range Wide Area Network", is meant a radio network in which data over long distances can be transmitted. This requires on the one hand, Sensors that collect readings, such as humidity, load power, or brightness, and send, and on the other side of the receiver, so-called Gateways that collect this data and, via the Internet forward. The nineteenth-Gateway will be installed, 60 it should be until the middle of next year, to be able to not only anywhere into the city area of sparks, but also to deep into buildings, basements and manholes.

Running almost without power

The include locations where the property so far, one thousand transmitter has been installed. Since now the Software is running for it, she can control amounts of the distribution stations of the district heating pipes, the saving quantity of water, the temperature of the room in substations or water consumption on construction sites, without a staff to send out. For such tasks, the LoRa is suitable Wan technology in Darmstadt, Germany, is already longer in use, better than mobile. Because the devices are much cheaper, is transmitted outside of the licensed areas, and the technique consumes very little energy. Once established, the antenna and the transmitter work for years without the battery needs to be replaced. The data transport is rather slow, and only small packages can be transported, the talk is of a SMS every quarter of an hour per station. But that is not enough to keep an eye on whether the charging station for electric cars is free.
