Increasing IoT Network Coverage with Alibaba Cloud Link WAN
Created#More Posted time:Mar 8, 2019 0:04 AM
Link WAN is Alibaba Cloud's network management platform.
The airship carries the IP67-rated waterproof and dustproof LoRaWAN gateway, which works with the exhibition ground station to form an IoT through Alibaba Cloud IoT's Link WAN.
The station on the airship uses the omnidirectional fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) antenna that has a transmit power of up to 24 dBm and a receiver sensitivity of down to –140 dBm (SF12, 125 kHz) and can process the SF7 to SF12 spread-spectrum channels simultaneously.
Signals can be sent or received beyond a 30-km radius, stretching from 40 km above the ground to 20 m below the ground.
Currently, Alibaba Cloud's Link WAN has been successively deployed in the main urban area of Hangzhou, Hongshan IoT Town in Wuxi, and Cainiao Logistics Park, covering an area of over 500 square kilometers. Large and small projects are being deployed as required and more scenarios will be supported in the future.
