White Paper: LoRaWAN and Cold Supply Chain

Today, cold supply chain practices are being transformed by the use of wireless sensors that continuously monitor temperature and humidity far more accurately, efficiently, and effectively than the previous intermittent, manual processes. However, some common wireless technologies that provide the connectivity for these wireless sensors struggle to perform in harsh cold supply chain environments, where insulated metal walls and other factors can negatively impact technologies like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Because of this, LoRaWAN technology has emerged as a key wireless technology for these cold supply chain applications because of its ability to perform even in those challenging environments.
