LPWA Solutions for Industrial IoT
Introducing a broad array of LPWA devices spanning both licensed and unlicensed spectrum
Why Choose MultiTech?
With more than 45 years in the communications industry,
MultiTech is committed to supporting the growth and
development of the Internet of Things in order to create
new customer experiences and unparalleled economic
value, while improving quality of life for countless
people throughout the world. By providing products
and services to connect “things” to the Internet,
MultiTech delivers deeper understanding to businesses,
governments,organizations and individuals, which will in
turn transform the way we live and work

That experience has proven that machine communications
has more stringent requirements than consumer applications

Long life cycles, extremely low cost connectivity requirements, and
ability to connect to devices in difficult to reach places are paramount to enabling IoT use cases that can change
the world. For example, when it comes to connecting utility meters, power companies expect equipment to
operate reliably, anywhere, for as long as 15 years, often times in harsh environmental conditions, and more often
than not on battery power. Underground sensors or meters have historically been impossible to connect, as traditional
technologies such as cellular, Wi-Fi and wired solutions, didn’t have the link budget to penetrate metal, reach
underground or cost-effectively span miles of distances. Overcoming these core communication challenges of long
lifetime, low cost, and long distance is crucial to enable growth of the IoTon the scale necessary to provide these
life changing solutions. This is where LPWA comes in

Low Power Wireless Area (LPWA) network technologies were specifically designed to solve these difficult IoT
challenges. LPWA covers a range of communications options from unlicensed wireless to licensed
cellular options, feature very low power consumption for long lifetime, can span incredible
distances to connect devices previously thought impossible to reach, and do so in
a cost-effective way that provides the ROI necessary to deploy and manage a
myriad of IoTuse cases. Suddenly, the art of the possible in the world of
connectedIoT devices is limitless – all thanks to LPWA technology

Whether you prefer to work with established cellular carriers
MultiTech Campus
for the utmost reliability and availability or you prefer the Mounds View,
flexibility and cost profile of an unlicensed approach, Minnesota U.S.A

MultiTech has you covered with a range of LPWA devices
to connect to both cellular networks and LoRaWAN®

Unlicensed LPWA
Unlicensed LPWA offers the opportunity to free industrial applications from
the consumer-driven cycles of the public cellular networks by providing the
stability of public or private networks designed and built specifically for
machines. These networks extend battery life and range and provide
“good enough” connectivity for the large majority of connected device
use cases. Among unlicensed LPWA technologies available today,
multiple options are making names for themselves due to the
anticipation of long lifetime and efficiency for machines. Options
include LoRaWAN, Sigfox and RPMA (marketed by Ingenu, formerly
OnRamp Wireless). Ultimately, we believe these technologies are very
complimentary as each is suited to a subset of applications. Sigfox, for
example, is ideal for simple sensor harvesting where its inherent
limitations are acceptable due to the limited size and daily transmissions of
the data being transferred and the need for optimal power efficiency. Ingenu
offers a broader bit rate and tighter control, but the business model options
and technical requirements (e.g., edge antenna diversity) generally requires an
up-front CAPEX investment most suitable to very high-value assets where the
additional complexity of integration can be effectively absorbed at the margin

LoRaWAN resides comfortable in the middle, providing higher bandwidth and a faster data rate
than Sigfox at a slightly shorter range and smaller link budget than Ingenu, but with a lower up front
cost and business model flexibility with both CAPEX and OPEX options. And while Sigfox and Ingenu are both on
the path to building ubiquitous nationwide networks, LoRa offers the ability, for those who prefer it, to deploy a
private network to cover a campus, farm, refinery, etc. as well as the option to work with public network service
providers. For these reasons and others, industry analysts agree that LoRaWAN is likely to emerge as the
undisputed leader among these technologies

LoRaWAN is a low-power, wide-area network (LPWAN) protocol intended for wireless,
remotely located, often battery-operated, things in local, regional, national or global
networks. LoRaWAN provides secure bi-directional communication, mobility and
localization services, and seamless interoperability among smart things. Better yet,
thanks to its low power consumption, a cost of pennies on the dollar compared to
alternative technologies, and the ability for enterprises to deploy their own private
networks for added security, LoRaWAN has the opportunity to facilitate the long-
predicted huge IoT growth well before alternative technologies are broadly available

MultiTech Conduit®

Though later to market than LoRaWAN®, the cellular carriers entry into the LPWA space are LTE Cat M and NB-IoT

These technologies have subtle differences that are targeted for specific use cases (e.g., voice and mobility for
Cat M; and large range and low power consumption for NB-IoT) to help customers decide which variant is right for
their needs. Cellular carriers around the globe are currently enabling LTE Cat M networks and are rolling out NB-IoT
