Challenges in Low-Power Wide Area Networks

Wireless data delivery over long distance is power consuming and challenging for large-scale deployments. Low-power wide area networks are increasingly in need to develop wireless solutions with the following requirements (1) Increased battery life, (2) Longer communication range, (3) Large-Scale, and (4) Low-cost. Existing wireless strategies do not efficiently address all of these in a large-scale network.
