Cellular LPWAN technologies, such as LTE-M & NB-IoT, powering a variety of IoT applications across a city

Low Power Wide Area Network technology: Built for IoT

With the world getting more connected every day, LPWA networks power the next generation of IoT.

No matter which industry you work in, chances are that the Internet of Things supports digital transformation activities in your organization: be it automating existing processes or developing new business models and offerings. By leveraging Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Networks, billions of devices can be connected, helping you gain unprecedented visibility into your supply chain, assets and operations, and deliver better customer experiences.

LPWAN wireless technology is optimized for IoT and enables the connection of large volumes of low-cost devices that have low bandwidth and power requirements, while providing increased range and signal penetration.

 

The first national carrier to launch Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) in Canada, Rogers now provides customers the most Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network options, all powered by Canada's most trusted network.*

*Based on total wireless subscribers.

Why choose Rogers LPWA networks?

Rogers LPWA networks are optimized for IoT, providing your IoT applications:



enhanced coverage and penetration

Enhanced coverage and penetration: LPWA networks provide deeper coverage and signal penetration than traditional LTE networks and enable supported devices to maintain connectivity in hard-to-reach locations, such as areas deep within buildings and basements.
extended battery life


Extended battery life: Depending on the application, batteries in some devices can last up to 10 years. This reduces replacement costs and the time that technicians must spend accessing remote devices and changing their batteries.
Carrier grade security and reliability


Carrier-grade security and reliability: LPWA networks from Rogers provide SIM and network-based security features, along with the quality of service and dependability of licensed spectrum and standards-based technology.
large implementations


Large scale implementations:
Because LPWA network devices are cheaper to build, deploy, run and maintain, businesses can consider Massive IoT deployments for a fraction of the total cost of ownership they would have had on previous technologies.
low operational cost


Low operational cost: Because they require a less complicated build, LPWA network devices are less expensive and consume much less power than traditional IoT units.
