White Paper: "LPWA: Unlocking the Future of the Internet of Things"
Internet of Things (IoT) has, over the past few years, become the hottest buzz word in the technology industry – driving connected devices and the applications they enable firmly into the spotlight.
LoRa Device Developer Guide: Orange Connected Objects & Partnerships
This LoRa Device Developer Guide is an initiative by Orange Connected Objects & Partnerships developed in collaboration with Actility. It provides an overiew of the LoRa ecosystem, wireless network architecture, as well as guidelines to support the growing community of developers adopting the LoRaWAN specification to connect devices, sensors and actuators to IoT applications and services.
Article - Long-Range Communications in Unlicensed Bands: the Rising Stars in the IoT and Smart City Scenarios
Abstract — Connectivity is probably the most basic building block of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. Up to know, the two main approaches to provide data access to the things have been based either on multi-hop mesh networks using shortrange communication technologies in the unlicensed spectrum, or on long-range, legacy cellular technologies, mainly 2G/GSM, operating in the corresponding licensed frequency bands.
Some operators and vendors insist that, once the 3GPP’s Narrowband-IoT standard is widely deployed, from late 2016, the specialized LPWA (low power wide area) networks will disappear into a niche.
IoT value even greater than the hype according to McKinsey researcher

Any business that fails to invest heavily in the internet of things in the next 10 years is unlikely to be able to remain competitive, according to McKinsey researcher Dan Aharon
LoRa white paper published in Arrow Intelligent Systems newsletter
Talk of the Internet of Things may still seem futuristic to most, but the fact is, today’s technological transformation began in the middle of the last century. For those who have been involved for 30+ years, the predicted hockey stick growth in connected devices certainly seems elusive.
EE Journal’s Bryon Moyer on LPWA protocols
September 7, 2015
If there’s one thing the Internet of Things (IoT) has in abundance, it’s protocols. Some are standards, some are standards-in-progress, and some are proprietary. I’ve done some cursory reviews before, but each survey seems to raise at least as many questions as it answers.
Over the past few quarters there’s been lots of talk about alternative wireless technologies to cellular and satellite communications, and the chatter has escalated to the point where the International M2M Council recently asked me to do some digging and comment on it, especially on the heels of some very recent moves in the space.

Tracy Hopkins of Stream Technologies on the role of LPWA in the growth of IoT
March 17, 2015
As companies work to figure out the best ways to implement and utilize the next wave of IoT technologies, one thing has become increasingly clear: long-range, cost-effective communication will play an integral role in all future applications.
