Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology is one of the fastest growing connectivity segments. With decreased power requirements, longer range and lower cost than a standard cellular network, LPWANs are set to enable the much wider range of M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) applications that have been previously constrained either by cost, range or battery life. With the open LoRaWAN Global Standard there is also an open business model, removing yet another barrier to large scale IoT deployments. The LoRaWAN™ Challenge, a special prize of the IOT/WT Innovation World Cup 2017/18, gives participants the opportunity to develop LoRaWAN enabled solutions and to fast track their success together with LoRa Alliance™. In addition to the competition prizes worth over $500,000, the winner will receive a number of benefits from including:
Transport and Accommodation to the Pitch & Award Ceremony for two people
Free Adopter Membership of the LoRa Alliance for one year to become part of our over 450 member ecosystem spanning the entire end to end value chain.
Free Key Sponsorship Place at the Open Market Place at a relevant LoRa Alliance All Members Meeting and Open House of the Winners Choice
Key Company Highlight in a LoRa Alliance newsletter and on the LoRa Alliance Website
A Joint Press Release with the LoRa Alliance on the winning solution distributed via the LoRa Alliance Media Channels.
