Workshop

What to look for when choosing your LoRaWAN devices
In the early days of LoRaWAN and TheThingsNetwork, choosing which devices to use was often driven by which embedded programming environment you were most used to, such as Arduino. Now, as the market becomes more established we are presented with a wealth of options when it comes to selecting devices. As a user of LoRaWAN wanting to build applications, you may want to consider whether your devices are well-tested, reliable and crucially if they are able to scale up. It's becoming increasingly important to choose the right devices, join us to learn how to go about choosing the right devices to suit your offering. In this workshop we will look at the following aspects:
  • How to find a device to do a specific task
  • How to assess the supply chain
  • How to test your chosen devices (or why it's useful for some one else do to it)
  • How to avoid choosing devices that fail after two months, don't live up to their specifications and don't suddenly become unavailable half way through a project

Workshop

How to choose your IoT-platform
You are considering or already planning your own IoT projects? That is great! But have you already chosen the right IoT platform? As the backbone of every IoT application, IoT platforms are a fundamental part of your overall IoT solution. The different IoT platforms on the market have varying specifications and serve distinct needs and requirements. Join this workshop to find out what it takes to pick the right platform that suits your needs. Based on our experience as operator of one the largest LoRaWAN networks in Germany, we will walk you through our long and short list of criteria, highlight the most common challenges and guide you to which platform works best for each use case so you can make the right decision when it comes to building the fundament of your IoT projects.
