What are LoRa & LoRaWAN?


is a chirped spread spectrum (CSS) radio modulation format from Semtech.


is the low power, wide-area network (LPWAN) global standard for carrier-operated networks, adopted by the LoRa Alliance.

How LoRa & Link Labs Integrate

Link Labs is a proud member of the LoRa Alliance and has partnered with many
companies in the LoRa ecosystem to build technology on the LoRaWAN platform. We have
also created a product line for smaller networks called Symphony Link, based on an extension of IEEE 802.15.4.

If you’re looking for LoRa-based protocol software and firmware, there are two options:
LoRaWAN and Symphony Link.
