The chicken-and-egg problem with LoRaWAN

The distribution of LoRaWAN in Berlin and also elsewhere is – as many other new technologies – subject to the so called "chicken-and-egg problem".

As long as no applications are realised, no networks will be built.
As long as no networks are built, no applications will be created.

In Berlin we try to solve this problem by building a "chicken coop" and we will call it "LoRaWAN - Incubator Berlin" in the future.

Therein TTN-Berlin-Community is working together with our ideal partner, the Technology Foundation of Berlin, where we meet on a regular basis, discussing latest developments and activities, minimizing the "chicken-egg-problem".

This works and we encourage others to do also!
