With The Things Stack v3.14 release, The Things Industries introduced data rates support for Semtech’s Long Range-Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (LR-FHSS) technology.
LR-FHSS modulation significantly increases network capacity and has interference resistance while maintaining low power consumption and the same radio link budget as Semtech’s LoRa® technology. Since LR-FHSS is uplink only, end nodes support packet modulation while gateways support packet demodulation. LR-FHSS is supported on end nodes built on Semtech’s SX1261, SX1262, and LR1110 and LR1120 transceivers. Any V2 gateway based on Semtech’s SX1301 baseband chip can be used to deploy LR-FHSS-enabled LoRaWAN® networks.
LR-FHSS-enabled LoRaWAN networks can be deployed in EU868, US915, and AU915 regions on either ISM unlicensed bands as well as 1.9-2.1GHz (S-Band). Currently, LR-FHSS provides two bit rates, 162 bits/s, and 325 bits/s. Read the RP2-1.0.3 LoRaWAN Regional Parameters document published by the LoRa Alliance® to learn more about LR-FHSS and its data rates.
The following benefits of using LR-FHSS-enabled LoRaWAN network operators to generate a good return on investment include:
“We are happy to be the first to support Semtech’s LR-FHSS technology as a globally-managed LoRaWAN network management infrastructure company. This modulation massively increases the total market for LoRaWAN applications,” - Wienke Giezeman, CEO of The Things Industries
