LoRaWAN Measurement Campaigns in Lebanon

LoRaWAN is a promising technology for the internet of things (IoT) in order to support low power and long-range communications. However, real-world deployment and network optimization require an accurate path-loss modeling in order to estimate network coverage and performance.

We carried out extensive measurement campaigns in both indoor and outdoor environments considering urban and rural areas in three locations in Lebanon (Saint Joseph University campus, Beirut city, and Bekaa valley). We further consider 3 different antennas heights of the end-device (0.2m-3m). This dataset provides these measurements campaigns, which enable us to derive Path-loss (PL) models for Lora communication. A text file “Readme_data” is provided to describe the measurements in addition a Matlab function of the proposed model “Path-Loss-Model” is given.
