LoRa Long Range Radio Lorawan

Mote II - Long Range Radio

The Mote II is a demonstration platform intended to be used in a variety of applications. It is fitted with the low power, bidirectional radio module iM881A, sensors like accelerometer, altimeter, temperature and a GPS module. iM881A was specially designed for battery driven LoRa® applications. It supports LoRaWAN™ operation modes and offers an excellent RF performance combined with low current consumption.

Mote II passed the Orange device interoperability test. This test validates the performance of the Mote II in the Orange public LoRaWAN™ network environment
