IOT has many connectivity options and systems based on Low Power Networks(LPN's) such as Lorawan are showing a great deal of promise. Lorawan uses the ISM Band which doesn't require a license for use.

The Things Networks(TTN) is a community initiated Lorawan, Low Power Wide Area Network(LPWAN). It's collaboratively built by passionate people, Open Source Software and Open Governance. The network has a manifesto and fair access policy that governs its use and management.

In the session we'll discuss:
The technology behind Lorawan, TTN and similar networks.
TTN's impact on public and private LPWAN's.
The initiators and communities that install and build Lorawan gateways.
Lastly we'll discuss the impact of the deployments in real world use cases.

There will also be a live demo of a Lorawan gateway and node in action on several public networks including TTN as well as others.
