Wireless data delivery over long distance is power consuming and challenging for large-scale deployments. Low-power wide area networks (LPWAN) are increasingly in need to develop wireless solution that satisfy the following requirements (1) Increased battery life, (2) Longer communication range, (3) Large-Scale, and (4) Low-cost. Existing strategies for addressing low-power and long-range do not co-exist efficiently in a large-scale network. In this talk, the fundamental challenges in meeting the above needs of LPWANs will be identified. Cross-layer strategies to address these challenges will be discussed. Comparison to commercially available LPWAN solutions such as LoRa and SigFox will be presented using experimental and simulation results.
