The rising tide of the Internet of Things has brought to the surface numerous low-power, long-range and low-bitrate wireless network technologies. One of them, LoRaWAN, is being intensely popularized as a solution for sensor networks, however, its potential and limitations are unclear, because there is still neither accurate study nor massive LoRaWAN deployment. This paper surveys and analyzes LoRaWAN operation, focusing on performance evaluation of its channel access as the most crucial… 

Optimization of LoRaWAN Access control

This paper proposes different approaches to improve the performance of LoRaWAN by better managing the use of the duty cycle by proposing a dynamic sharing mechanism (Dynamic Duty-Cycle) and a deterministic access technique to replace Aloha.

When LoRaWAN Frames Collide

This paper presents an in-depth investigation of LoRaWAN frame collisions -- and the capture effect in particular -- through various experiments and focuses on correct reception of data at the application, instead of at the gateway, and considers multi-gateway, multi-provider, and dense scenarios to obtain insight into collisions within actual networks.

Improving LoRaWAN’s Successful Information Transmission Rate with Redundancy

This work investigates the LoRaWAN channel capacity by analyzing the transmission overhead, the collision probability, and the data loss and proposes a novel approach based on aggregation and retransmission that shows a decreased data loss of up to 20% compared to the currently used random channel access.

Slotted ALOHA on LoRaWAN-Design, Analysis, and Deployment

This paper proposes to regulate the communication of LoRaWAN networks using a Slotted-ALOHA variant on the top of the Pure-alOHA approach used by the standard; thus, no modification in pre-existing libraries is necessary.

Experimental Performance Evaluation of the Collisions in LoRa Communications
