    Phoronix: Linux's LoRa Is Ready To Deliver Long-Range, Low-Power Wireless

    Adding to the long list of new features for what will be Linux 4.20 or likely renamed to Linux 5.0 per Linus Torvald's numbering preferences is a new wireless networking subsystem within the kernel's networking code... Meet LoRa...

    Now if we could only have the industry pick up just one of these IoT communications techniques.

      Unfortunately, this is patented and has a closed-source foundation; the only hope is that some giant will buy this to set free.

        ....and I am sure the chinese manufacturers will have cheap knocks offs in 3, 2, 1...

          what other protocol is low power and can communicate over 10k's (i honestly do not know of one)?

            For example wmbus?
            And its an open standard.
            it works on C,F,N:
            C (868 MHz),
            F (433 MHz),
            N (169 MHz)

            It is a lot used in Europe, for example for: electricity,gas, water and heat metering..
            But you can use it for whatever you want, and its open..

                Has very little to do with protocol layer but rather transmission frequencies and physical layer.

                  Unfortunately, industry continues to find new ways to saturate us with non-ionizing radiation, in the name of convenience.

                  The body is electric and radio frequency energy interferes with intracellular and intercellular communication, in every cell of the body.

                  Chronic RF exposure is becoming a focal cause of disease in the "developed" world. It demyelinates the nerves and brain.

                  RF has been proven to cause non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for decades. Yet, the masses continue to "march for a cure" instead of paying attention to the cause.
