LoRaWAN enables massive connectivity for Internet-of-Things applications. Many published works employ stochastic geometry to derive outage models of LoRaWAN over fading channels assuming fixed transmit power and distance-based spreading factor (SF) allocation. However, in practice, LoRaWAN employs the Adaptive Data Rate (ADR) mechanism, which dynamically adjusts SF and transmit power of nodes based on channel state. The community addressed the performance of ADR using simulations, but…
