The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) is driving growth and innovation in low power wide area network (LPWAN) technologies. The wide variety of radio technologies gives IoT solution providers a choice of communication protocols, but that choice can be very complex, with many tradeoffs and confusing details to consider. This application brief will summarize the key factors, with a focus on data transmission range, link budget, and data rate.
