Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) is a wireless network technology that specializes in interconnecting low-bandwidth devices by focussing on long range and power efficiency. These technologies are specifically designed for M2M communications. M2M and IoT applications which consume greater power and cannot be adopted because of budget constraints can benefit from the wider range offered.

LPWAN uses low bandwidth and consumes lesser power. Consequently, data transfer rates for LPWAN are considerably lower. The network supports the devices over a long coverage area than the traditional consumer mobile technologies.

Technologies such as Bluetooth, Zigbee and WiFi are popular for consumer usage but not for industrial or commercial usage. LPWAN is being extensively used in smart cities and buildings, transportation and industrial applications.
