Spark LPWA Networks

In addition to supporting M2M and IoT devices over our wired, optical, 3G cellular, and 4G LTE cellular networks, Spark also operates two Low-Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks that are optimised for IoT and M2M applications:

  • LoRaWAN™ – Our long range, low-power wide area network for very low power applications. It provides an ideal solution for your devices that need to be able to operate relying only on battery power (and unattended) for up to 10 years.
  • LTE CatM1 – A cellular-based IoT network which benefits from Spark’s extensive coverage, and offering higher data-rates than LoRaWAN. CatM1 devices use licensed spectrum, suitable for global deployments, and readily supports firmware updates “Over-The-Air” (OTA).
