Yes, you heard right. Weightless is a
Organised, synchronous networking means every device and base station knows exactly when to talk and when to listen. This is identical to our reliable cellular networks that our cell phones depend on. Without it, high collision rates will occur. Worth mentioning, LoRa and Sigfox are NOT synchronous networks.
A base station can have absolute control over its network and page end devices at any time. Other technologies have end devices that are unreachable until the device wakes up for uplink transmission. Weightless supports both network originated and device originated traffic with paging capacity. Multiple paging sub-channels with low latency in both uplink and downlink reduces reception time and also reducing battery drain.

When millions of devices are sending data, a Weightless base station will be able to tell each device the exact timing and channel to utilize in order to avoid collisions and ensure the successful delivery of your important data.
