Smart City IoT Network includes two basic parts, NaaS(Network as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service). NaaS is the communication network in which large number of various end-devices are connected for transmitting all kinds of data, PaaS is the server platform on which all those data will be hosted and processed for different application users to make decisions and take actions.
EMAGA’s Smart City IoT Network is based on a revolutionary Lower Power Wide Area Network(LPWAN) wireless communication technology LoRa and the international open protocol LoRaWAN which enables customer to establish an operator-grade wireless communication network(NaaS). LoRaMind is a cloud-based smart city IoT server platform(PaaS) built on top of the LoRaWAN network with considerable scalability for various future possible applications extension, which is dedicated to providing customer with a turn-key smart city IoT network solution.
Since LoRaWAN is an international open protocol, our Smart City IoT Network is able to connect and communicate with various LoRaWAN applications, even if they were developed by widely different manufacturers. This kind of Interoperability refers to the vital ability of our Smart City IoT Network to establish an open ecosystem for modern smart city.
A Smart City IoT Infrastructure must be able to support massive take-up of devices, applications, data traffic, what is more, able to scale for on-going new applications, new devices, more data traffic. LoRaWAN’s narrow bandwidth and different application-adaptive protocol classes is able to connect thousands of end-devices by mere one base station with a very high spectrum utilization efficiency. EMAGA’s platform with a world-wide distributed server architecture can also support either user-owned or local ready LoRaWAN network extension through flexible base station deployment.
Every LoRaWAN end device is personalized with a unique 128 bit AES key (AppKey) and a globally unique identifier (EUI-64-based DevEUI). The communication from end-device to network server is encrypted by a 128-bit NwkSkey, and the from end-device to application CMS encrypted by a 128-bit AppSkey.
