  author={Joannes I. Laveyne and G. V. Eetvelde and L. Vandevelde},
The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) market is generating a lot of buzz, and different Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies such as Sigfox, Ingenu or LoRaWAN are making waves in the industry. The speed at which nation-wide networks based on these technologies are being rolled out is among the fastest ever seen on the European continent. In this paper we discuss the aptitude of a LoRaWAN network to capture data from smart energy meters. Special attention is given to the… Expand
