Optimal Non-Uniform Deployments of LoRa Networks

Orestis Georgiou, Constantinos Psomas, Christodoulos Skouroumounis, Ioannis Krikidis

LoRa wireless technology is an increasingly prominent solution for massive connectivity and the Internet of Things. Stochastic geometry and numerical analysis of LoRa networks usually consider uniform end-device deployments. Real deployments however will often be non-uniform, for example due to mobility. This letter mathematically investigates how non-uniform deployments affect network coverage and suggest optimal deployment strategies and uplink random access transmission schemes. We find that concave deployments of LoRa end-devices with a sub-linear spread of random access inter-transmission times provide optimal network coverage performance.
