What sort of network does Dryad’s Silvanet use?
Our network is based on LoRaWAN, the leading standard for long-range IoT. The LoRa / LoRaWAN standard is a well-established industry standard for long-range communication specifically designed for IoT use-cases.
LoRaWAN’s radio communication and protocol is owned by Semtech (an early investor in Dryad) and a burgeoning ecosystem of chipset and module vendors has developed since its inception in 2012.
LoRaWAN is a great option for Dryad due to its ultra-low power needs, long range, license-free spectrum, high capacity and thriving ecosystem.
