FOTA: Weightless-P vs. LoRaWAN
LoRaWAN is unable to meet a key IoT network deployment requirement: bi-directional communication to upgrade firmware-over-the-air and update security patches to end-devices that have already been deployed in the field. The new LPWAN technology Weightless-P has taken position as the new catalyst to bring sustainable IoT networks to life. Let's first take a look at the three reasons why LoRaWAN is unable to support Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) for a real IoT deployment. 1.
