LoRaWAN: The Things Network

LoRa is a modern Internet of Things (IoT) focused protocol for sending small amounts of data over great distances using low power. Transmitters run up to 100mW but can reach distances of 16km!

The things network is a cloud service that is creating a public worldwide network of gateways. The gateways are provided freely by the community, and each gateway can be freely used on the network both for receiving and transmission. My gateway can be seen at https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/u/kgolding
