Resumen

Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) communication technologies provide a cost-effective, long-range, low-power solution for wireless device networks. They have many applications on the Internet of Things (IoT) industry. LoRaWAN is one of the most popular LPWAN technologies used in IoT due to its more than 5km coverage in non-urban areas. There is a LoRaWAN network installed at the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB) working at 868MHz with two gateways. In this paper we used the HTZ Communications software to simulate the coverage of this LoRaWAN network. Measurements of the coverage of this LoRaWAN network were conducted inside and offside the university campus. A portable LoRaWAN device with GPS was used to position the measurements taken. The simulation results are compared with actual measurements to validate and improve the simulation, analyze the accuracy of the simulation, evaluate the quality of the UAB LoRaWAN network and propose possible actions to increase coverage in areas with poor coverage.
