LoRaWAN: Start your journey as a digital Smart City now!

Dig­i­ti­za­tion offers a vari­ety of oppor­tu­ni­ties, espe­cial­ly for util­i­ties, to imple­ment new busi­ness mod­els, reduce costs and strength­en region­al vis­i­bil­i­ty. The Inter­net of Things is the dri­ver for these devel­op­ments, which are based on wire­less tech­nolo­gies such as LoRaWAN. How­ev­er, numer­ous inci­dents illus­trate that the threats from cyber­space are a real­i­ty. — PHYSEC GmbH has made it its busi­ness to secure crit­i­cal infra­struc­tures against cyber attacks. To meet the high CRITIS secu­ri­ty require­ments, we have devel­oped a tai­lor-made secu­ri­ty lay­er for LoRaWAN. We have already sup­port­ed a large num­ber of com­pa­nies from the util­i­ty indus­try (includ­ing Gelsen­wass­er AG, Stadtwerke Bochum, Stadtwerke Hal­tern, Stadtwerke Göt­tin­gen) in set­ting up their own LoRaWAN net­works and imple­ment­ing busi­ness mod­els.

! Nice to know !

LoRaWAN is a Low Pow­er Wide Area Net­work (LPWAN) stan­dard for wire­less bat­tery pow­ered sys­tems in a region­al net­work. LoRaWAN aims at the most impor­tant require­ments of the Inter­net of Things — such as bidi­rec­tion­al com­mu­ni­ca­tion, local­i­sa­tion and mobil­i­ty of ser­vices.


On the basis of an own LoRaWAN infra­struc­ture, Smart City appli­ca­tions can be imple­ment­ed. This includes, for exam­ple, park­ing space man­age­ment, ener­gy man­age­ment in pub­lic build­ings, waste dis­pos­al, air qual­i­ty mea­sure­ment, emer­gency route mon­i­tor­ing or the infra­struc­tur­al improve­ment of schools. In addi­tion, appli­ca­tions in the area of crit­i­cal infra­struc­tures can also be eas­i­ly imple­ment­ed on the basis of our “TLS over LoRaWAN” prod­uct, so that net­work infra­struc­tures can be mon­i­tored and smart meter­ing can be imple­ment­ed cost-effec­tive­ly.
