Collision and packet loss analysis in a LoRaWAN network [pdf]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Internet of things (IoT) is considered as the next technological revolution. Therefore, many solutions are developed either in free, i.e. ISM bands or in non free bands with the ultimate aim of affording connectivity over several kilometers. Based on this feature, in urban environment the density of IoT devices will be extremely high. In this paper we propose to analyze the collision and packet loss when LoRaWAN is considered. Based on the LoRaWAN features, we develop closed-form expressions of collision and packet loss probabilities. Simulation results confirm our theoretical developments. We also show that our theoretical expressions are more accurate than the Poisson distributed process to describe the collisions.
