QoS Metrics Measurement in Long Range IoT Networks
Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) is a new solution for the Internet of Things (IoT). This type of networks already has several specific implementations like LoRa, Sigfox, Weightless, RPMA and others. Due to long wireless range, low power consumption and numerous nodes low speed overlay networks can be organized on top of LPWAN. Small pieces of data like text messages, low-quality photographs, etc. can be sent over these overlays and can be of significant importance for emergency services. When organizing an overlay network over LPWAN it is important to meet the Quality of Service (QoS) requirements present in the base network to prevent malfunction of its services. This paper presents the results of experimental study of QoS metrics measurement in LoRaWAN networks.
