LPWAN is designed for low bandwidth, low functionality, long distance, large number of connected applications.

There are numerous cases of smart building and application in Hong Kong. IoT has become an indispensable element in the future development of Hong Kong. Cisco recently began working with Actility and Pixel Networks, and successfully deployed the first low-power wide area network (LPWAN) in Hong Kong to provide Internet connectivity services, the network is Acting's ThingPark Wireless platform, the platform and Cisco Networking solutions and LPWAN gateway technology to meet the needs of public and private hosting networks.
