Orchestra Cities uses a new version of FIWARE LoRaWAN IoT Agent interfacing IoT devices and NGSI-LD APIs.

The new version, developed together by Martel and our partners at ATOS, enables the support for LoRaWAN IoT devices integrated with The Things Network v3 API.

The IoT Agent for LoRaWAN protocol enables data and commands to be exchanged between IoT devices and the NGSI-LD interface of a context broker using the LoRaWAN protocol. The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery-operated devices to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key IoT requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.

This IoT agent provides interoperability between FIWARE NGSI-LD Context Brokers and LoRaWAN devices. MARTEL provided different bug fixes and introduced support for The Things Network v3 API.
