Sensors running the standard LoRaWAN Class A protocol send out packets in a random chirp pattern. Because of this, the more sensors you have in a given area, the more collisions (ie. interference between sensor transmissions that result in data-loss) your system will experience.
The Longview Super-B Protocol solves this by scheduling packet transmissions within time-synchronized slots—the gateway listens for a given sensor to send data within its prescribed, scheduled slot. This greatly reduces collisions and increases the amount of traffic that can be carried over identical bandwidths. This becomes especially useful in network-congested areas.
- Carries 8x the traffic of a standard LoRaWAN channel on a single channel of Super-B
- Prevents majority of collisions and data-loss experienced with LoRaWAN Class A (95%+ data quality)
- Enables over-the-air upgrades of sensors in a highly controlled and managed method
- Interfaces easily with third-party IoT devices, thanks to backwards compatibility with LoRaWAN Class A protocol
