Swisscom offers the only nationwide network for the Internet of Things in Switzerland: the Low Power Network (LPN). It is designed for the transmission of small amounts of data independently of the electrical network and forms the basis for smart cities, energy-efficient buildings, machine-to-machine networking and new digital applications. The Low Power Network is based on the open LoRaWAN industry standard (www.lora-alliance.org).
In the LPN Bootcamp you will learn about the functionality of the network as well as do a technical deep dive on Hardware and Software Integration. You will get a hands-on training on how to set up your own LPN based solution.
The LPN Bootcamp is designed for solution providers, system integrators and hardware providers who are already in the preliminary concept state.
