The Bristol LoRaWAN Network is a low power radio network for the Internet of Things, based on LoRaWAN and utilising The Things Network. LoRaWAN is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated Things in regional, national, or global networks. LoRaWAN targets key requirements of internet of things such as secure bi-directional communication, mobility and localisation services. A 2015 pilot programme in the city of Amsterdam aimed to cover the entire city with just 10 wireless gateways. LoRaWAN Bristol aims to replicate this experiment in the UK.
