Experimental Evaluation of LoRaWAN in NS-3

by   Furqan Hameed Khan, et al.

Long Range Wide Area Networks (LoRaWAN) is an open medium access control (MAC) layer technology devised for the long range connectivity of massive number of low power network devices. This work gives an overview of the key aspects of LoRaWAN technology and presents results that we achieved via extensive evaluation of Class A LoRaWAN devices in different network settings using the state-of-the-art network simulator (NS-3). At first, we focus on a single device and its mobility. We further undertook evaluations in an extended network scenario with a changing number of devices and traffic intensity. In particular, we evaluate the packet delivery ratio (PDR), uplink (UL) throughput, and sub-band utilization for the confirmed and unconfirmed UL transmissions in different environments. Our results give new insights for future efforts to optimize the LoRaWAN performance for different large scale Internet of Things (IoT) applications with low power end devices.
