Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) are becoming popular due to the growth of M2M and Internet of Things applications. They are suited to send small amounts of data over a long range while consuming little power and supporting long battery life.
The LoRa Alliance, an open, non-profit organization is driving the standardization of the LoRa technology as it safe and economical to use for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The LoRa Alliance certification requires that LoRa certified devices meet the functional requirements of the LoRaWAN protocol specifications, which has to be confirmed by successful testing against the LoRa Certification Program.
The accredited 7layers’ 3rd party test labs in Ratingen (Germany) have achieved status as one of the first independent 3rd party test labs in Europe to be authorized to test and certify according to the LoRa certification program.
Customers can rely on our objective assessments, since 7layers has no commercial interest in developing its own devices or gateways or any other components used within the LoRa EcoSystem. We offer a comprehensive portfolio for LoRa device manufacturers and providers of smart IoT services encompassing:
