    LoRa is a new ISM band wireless technology designed for low power, unlicensed, Long Range operation. LoRaWAN is a Wide Area Network protocol that incorporates the LoRa wireless into a networked infrastructure. The indoor and outdoor performance of these technologies, the physical layer wireless and multi-gateway wide area network, was evaluated across the central business district (CBD) of Glasgow city (Scotland). The results indicated that this technology can be a reliable link for low cost remote sensing applications
