The emphasis on Internet of Things and expansion of wireless sensor networks, led to development LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) networks. This necessitates sensor connectivity to the Internet. The low -data rate communication with low-power over a wide range of area is enclosed. Firstly, this paper clarifies a performance assessment of the LoRa wireless networks. Secondly, LoRa technology specifies a possible solution to the difficulties of the IoT (Internet of Things) idea. Thirdly, this article brings detailing about the LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Network) technology. The detailing about its architecture and various applications. Lastly, the various advantages of LoRaWAN is also presented here.
