IoTA 21 - One Tattoo to rule them all

Show Notes:
Richard Chirgwin of the Register reports that the LoRa Alliance have launched a developer kit. The kit has a gateway, 10 Semtech sensors, application software and a connection to the LoRaWAN network. The idea is to get the developer working without having to pre-test everything in order to get started. The kit supports bio-directional communication and a low data rate of up to 300 bits/sec with the rate managed to reduce the load on the batteries. The LoRa alliance consists of Semtech, Libelium, Loriot and now Cisco.http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/08/15/lora_backers_ship_iot_dev_kit/
