Abstract

LoRaWAN® Certification of devices is critical for effective and efficient mass deployment of LoRaWAN Networks, as it ensures devices will work on any network, under all conditions. Certified Devices significantly reduce the support costs as any product failures detected later when the device is deployed is far more expensive to repair and poor RF performance of the device increase number of gateways needed and cost of the network infostructure.
