The emergence of the Internet of Things concept in the last ten years has radically changed the approach to the development of networked systems. The vast number of items that are expected to be connected to the Internet has led to the need for data transmission technologies whose features are totally different from the ones of personal communication devices. The key requirements for these technologies are rather long range, low power, low cost, and great capacity, instead of reduced latency, great speed, and large bandwidth. In this context, low-power wide area networks (LPWANs) can play a crucial role since they have been customized for the IoT scenario. Technologies like LoRa and LoRaWAN, SigFox, or other Sub-GHz systems are employed in an ever-increasing number of application scenarios, while NB-IoT has opened the way to IoT-based cellular solutions.
This Special Issue invites original contributions on topics related to LPWAN technologies and their possible applications, related to, but not limited to the following topics:
- LPWAN technologies and architectures
- LPWAN-based sensor and actuator networks
- LPWAN infrastructures for Smart Cities
- LPWAN systems for Industry 4.0
- LPWAN architectures for the Internet of Things
- Sub-GHz technologies and protocols
- IEEE 802.15.4 solutions within the LPWAN context
- LoRa technology and applications
- SigFox technology and applications
- LoRaWAN protocol, platforms, and applications
- NB-IoT technology and applications
- Integration of different LPWAN technologies
- 5G technologies for the Internet of Things

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
