IoT is proving to be invaluable in the energy sector with a wide span of potential applications. Asset Tracking, Remote Monitoring, Preventative Maintenance, Environmental Monitoring and Lone Worker safety are just a small group of integral applications highlighting the potential improved operational efficiencies that IoT can provide in this industry.
LoRaWAN®'s multi-usage capabilities accommodate a high capacity of IoT devices in a single network. A carrier-grade LoRaWAN® collection hub, known as a gateway has the capacity to simultaneously send and receive hundreds of messages every second from the devices deployed in its vicinity. This is ample capacity for most oil and gas applications.
