Keynote of TestIstanbul 2022

Massive IoT and Interop

LoRaWAN is emerging as one of the pillars of Massive IoT by taking care of the wireless communication needs of this new paradigm. Thanks to its low-power and long-range communication support, unlicensed band use and ultra-low infra cost, public, private, and community deployments have been mushrooming all around the world — both terrestrial and space-based. In this talk Alper will introduce this new technology, and how standardization, certification, and interoperability tools and processes have been helping ensure high-quality and reliable deployments.
