The Things Network

The Things Network is building a network for the Internet of Things by creating abundant data connectivity, so applications and businesses can flourish. The technology they use is called LoRaWAN and it allows for things to talk to the internet without 3G or WiFi. The Things Network is built by the community with more than 42 000 members. Everyone can contribute by placing a gateway and expand the network. The more gateways are placed, the larger the coverage. At this moment, there are already around 3950 gateways up and running.


The LoRaWAN specification is a Low Power, Wide Area (LPWA) networking protocol designed to wirelessly connect battery operated ‘things’ to the internet in regional, national or global networks, and targets key Internet of Things (IoT) requirements such as bi-directional communication, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.


At Institute IRNAS we strive to apply the vast scientific knowledge to everyday reality by creating effective, affordable and well-tailored future-proof hardware products and IoT systems. We believe in an open-source world and sharing. We aim to empower the world with technologies that improve lives, let that be an advanced communication system or a simple everyday utensil.
