Low-Cost, Long-Range Open IoT for Smarter Rural African Villages

Abstract : Recent long-range radio technologies are promising to deploy Low Power WAN at a very low-cost for a large variety of IoT applications. However, even though, there are several issues that need to be addressed when considering deploying IoT solutions for low-income developing countries. In this article, we first explain these issues and show how they can be addressed in the context of rural sub-saharan African applications, one of them being smarter villages and farms in a small and micro deployment model. We then describe our low-cost, long-range IoT framework which takes cost of hardware and services as the main challenge to be addressed as well as flexibility, quick appropriation and customization by third parties.
