LoRa Alliance® Launches IPv6 Over LoRaWAN®; Opens Large Vary of New Markets for LoRaWAN

Fremont, Calif. – Might 17, 2022 – LoRa Alliance® launches IPv6 over LoRaWAN®. The LoRa Alliance®, the worldwide affiliation of firms backing the open LoRaWAN® normal for the web of issues (IoT) low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs), in the present day introduced that LoRaWAN now seamlessly helps Web Protocol model 6 (IPv6) from end-to-end. By increasing the breadth of device-to-application options with IPv6, LoRaWAN’s addressable IoT market can also be broadened to incorporate web based mostly requirements required in good electrical energy metering and new purposes in good buildings, industries, logistics, and houses.


The brand new IPv6 adaptation layer facilitates and accelerates growth of safe and interoperable purposes over LoRaWAN and builds on the alliance’s dedication to ease of use. IP-based options, generally present in enterprise and industrial options, amongst many others, can now be transmitted over LoRaWAN, and simply built-in with cloud infrastructures. This enables builders to rapidly allow internet-based purposes, whereas considerably lowering time-to-market and complete value of possession.

“As digitization throughout market sectors continues, integrating a number of applied sciences to realize end-to-end options is crucial. On the similar time, firms are requiring options that present elevated interoperability and cling to requirements. Now that LoRaWAN readily integrates with any IP utility, finish customers have each. IPv6 is a core expertise underpinning IoT, so enabling IPv6 over LoRaWAN opens an enormous variety of new markets and a a lot bigger addressable utility area to LoRaWAN. Builders and finish customers with IPv6 gadgets acknowledge the advantages of digital transformation and IoT, and already create options that may enhance lives and the surroundings, in addition to drive new income streams. By supporting IPv6, they now have a easy path to make use of LoRaWAN and profit from the expertise’s confirmed benefits. With this growth, LoRaWAN as soon as once more positions itself a market chief on the forefront of IoT.”

Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance

The profitable launch of IPv6 over LoRaWAN® is credited to the lively collaboration of LoRa Alliance members within the Web Engineering Job Drive (IETF) to specify the Static Context Header Compression (SCHC) and fragmentation methods, which makes transport of the IP packets over LoRaWAN very environment friendly. The LoRa Alliance IPv6 over LoRaWAN Job Drive then took the SCHC specification (RFC 90111) and built-in it into the physique of the LoRaWAN normal. LoRa Alliance member firm, Acklio, made important contributions to allow IPv6 over LoRaWAN and was integral to the event of the SCHC expertise for LoRaWAN.

“I wish to thank Acklio on behalf of the LoRa Alliance for its help and contributions to this effort, and its efforts to drive the LoRaWAN normal ahead.”

Donna Moore, CEO and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance

“Acklio, a pioneer of SCHC expertise, is proud to contribute to this new milestone that makes LoRaWAN natively appropriate with Web applied sciences. The LoRa Alliance ecosystem has mobilized for the specification and adoption of this key function in file time. SCHC options which can be compliant with this new specification at the moment are commercially out there from companions throughout the IoT worth chain to deploy IPv6 over LoRaWAN options worldwide.”

Alexander Pelov, CEO of Acklio

The primary utility to leverage SCHC for IPv6 over LoRaWAN is DLMS/COSEM for good metering. It was developed as a part of the liaison between LoRa Alliance and DLMS Consumer Affiliation to deal with electrical utilities requirement for the usage of IP-based requirements. There are numerous extra purposes for IPv6 over LoRaWAN, akin to monitoring web networking tools, studying RFID labels, and IP-based good house purposes, amongst others.

LoRa Alliance® , LoRaWAN® and LoRaWAN CertifiedCM are registered marks.
