The Internet of things is a technology revolution that would establish connectivity between billions of day-to-day things ranging from door locks to cars to buildings to satellites! Such a massive number of Things - deployed across large distances, mostly battery - powered and spanning different application verticals - would have communication requirements of their own.
LoRaWAN® is a cutting-edge Low-Power Wide Area Network(LPWAN) technology protocol that has been designed to wirelessly connect “Things” in regional, national or global networks. LoRaWAN offers multi-kilometer connectivity at astonishingly low power consumption rates. This breaks the constraints imposed by traditional networking technologies and thereby opens up a whole new range of applications in the IoT world.
Maximizing battery life-time of IoT devices would be of utmost necessity. LoRaWAN does exactly this: Optimizes power consumption and thereby providing a battery life spanning over years!
Provides multi-kilometer connectivity where communication range is much greater than traditional cellular networks.Typical LoRaWAN setups offer a coverage of 2-5 kms in urban areas, 15+ kms in semi-urban & rural areas.  LoRaWAN also offers deep indoor coverage.
With respect to LoRaWAN architecture where Sensor nodes communicate to central servers via gateways, LoRaWAN would be suitable for public nationwide deployments and highly controlled private rollouts where security & control are essential.
LoRaWAN incorporates a double-layer of security:
LoRaWAN is capable of addressing billions of IoT devices. And such a huge scale comes as an open standard i.e., it's not proprietary or doesn't depend on a single player in the ecosystem.
LoRaWAN enables IoT deployments at large scale because it is:
LoRaWAN is the global de facto LPWAN standard for IoT and quickly becoming the connectivity backbone for a multitude of smart city applications.

Devices deployed across the globe on every inhabited continent.
Known use-cases and the number is growing rapidly.
LoRaWAN acts as one communication backbone between a wide variety of Things - thereby enabling new IoT, M2M, Smart City and sensor-network based applications. These applications span several verticals including:
With the wide range of opportunities LoRaWAN unlocks, it has received a lot of attention from technology enthusiasts, network operators, solution providers and businesses world-wide. LoRaWAN creates unparalleled experiences and technology avenues for improving the quality of life of people around the globe.
Just as the world is catching up with the disruptive technology LoRaWAN, The Things Conference India 2019 is being organized to build a bigger, better and stronger LoRaWAN ecosystem in India.
This Asia’s largest conference on LoRaWAN brings together CEOs, CTOs, governments, IoT and LoRaWAN industry leaders, startups and tech-enthusiasts to share the knowledge and explore future possibilities with LoRaWAN.
The conference is being organized at HICC, Hyderabad on 18th - 19th October 2019 by CyberEye.
