LoRa is an acronym for long range, but there's a second part that's important, low power. This technology makes it possible for M2M and remote devices to connect to the Cloud. LoRa technology is a proprietary radio modulation technology owned and developed by Semtech Corporation.

This technology uses the unlicensed spectrum below 1GHz along with a form of direct sequence spread spectrum modulation that provides signal detection below the noise level. As a result this technology is able to use extremely low transmit power levels and can fulfill many of the requirements for long battery life. The LoRa network consists of the end nodes, gateways / concentrators and network controllers. The networks have a wide range and can either be private networks, or they could be operated on a cellular format.
