Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) communication technologieshave the potential to provide a step change in the enablementof cost-effective and energy efficient Internet ofThings (IoT) applications. With an increase in the numberof offerings available the real performance of these emergingtechnologies remain unclear. That is, each technologycomes with its own advantages and limitations; yet there isa lack of comparative studies that examine their trade-offsbased on empirical evidence. This poses a major challengeto IoT solution architects and developers in selecting an appropriatetechnology for an envisioned IoT application in agiven deployment context.In this paper, we look beyond data sheets and white papersof LPWA communication technologies and provide insightsinto the performance of three emerging LPWA solutionsbased on real world experiments with different traf-fic loads and in different urban deployment contexts. Underthe context of this study, specialized hardware was createdto incorporate the different technologies and provide scientificquantitative and qualitative information related to datarates, success rates, transmission mode energy and powerconsumption, and communication ranges. The results of experimentationhighlight the practicalities of placing LPWAtechnologies in real spaces and provide guidelines to IoT solutiondevelopers in terms of LPWA technology selection.Overall aim is to facilitate the design of new LPWA technologiesand adaptive communication strategies that informfuture IoT platforms.
