In Russia, a draft standard of the LoRaWAN protocol has been developed for the market of Internet of things


The Technical Committee “Cyber-Physical Systems” at Rosstandart presented a preliminary national standard draft of (PNST) “Information Technologies. Internet of things. The exchange protocol for high-capacity networks with a large range and low power consumption." The document was developed with the participation of RVC and the Association of participants of the market of Internet of things (AIV) and is currently being submitted for public discussion.

The developed standard specifies the network protocol and system architecture of the LoRaWAN network (Long Range Wide Area Networks), optimized at the national level for mobile and stationary battery-powered end devices. A distinctive feature of this protocol is high energy efficiency, the ability to transmit the data over long distances, the ability to support the bidirectional network, as well as flexible bandwidth adaptation. The standard also supports the Russian cryptographic algorithms, which allows to provide the required level of data transmission security.

In its basic configuration, LoRaWAN network has a star-of-stars topology, in which gateways re-transmit the messages between the end devices and the central network server. The network server routes the packages from each device to the appropriate application server, that is, the devices (sensors, counters and sensors) communicate directly with the base station. Such a network construction system has proven itself in the world when building the systems of urban and regional scales.

This is the second, and what is important — also an open, national standard of the Internet of things, being developed in Russia. Unlike the first standard of Russian origin NB-Fi, developed on the basis of TC “Cyber-Physical Systems, it is based on the international technology and protocol of the LPWAN family. This technology is internationally recognized and widely used by companies around the world, so its formalization on transparent conditions in the national field is extremely important.

The Russian market of the Internet of things is growing annually in the range of 15-20% and has a high potential for further growth. IoT technologies are also among the “through technologies” of the National Technology Initiative and the program “Digital Economy”. Wireless protocols of the LPWAN family are currently the part of applications to manage energy, utilities, transport infrastructure and are used in agriculture, mining and petrochemical industries and other industries. One of the most promising markets for the LoRaWAN standard use is the housing and utilities sector, in particular the market of wireless control and accounting systems for utility resources.

Andrey Kolesnikov, Director of the Internet of Things Association
The association and market participants are convinced that the formation of a broad family of national standards will ensure an accelerated finding of suitable solutions for the Russian market of the Internet of Things and will allow working within the generally accepted norms and technological solutions. The technologies of Cyber-Physical Systems are very diverse and the standardization process of various technological components will be continued.
Anton Shalaev, Deputy Head of Rosstandart
The Internet of things is one of the most demanded digital technologies, and its regulatory and technical regulation is relevant not only for the market development, but also for the specific project implementation. We are interested in ensuring that the industry participant needs are covered by a particular standard, including both national and adapted international documents.

The LoRaWAN draft standard is submitted for public discussion, which will last for three months. The corresponding notice is made available on the website After that, the draft standard will be submitted for approval to the Technical Committee "Cyber-physical systems" and submitted for approval to Rosstandart.

The draft standard text of LoRaWAN and the feedback form during the public discussion can be found on the official website of the Technical Committee "Cyber-Physical Systems".


About the Technical Committee “Cyber-Physical Systems”

Technical Committee 194 “Cyber-Physical Systems” was created on the basis of RVC in 2017. The collegial body serves as a development platform of the digital economy and the NTI due to the development of the digital technology standards for new promising markets. The committee combines the leading scientific and public organizations, technology companies, non-profit organizations of hardware and software developers. Among its participants are Gazpromneft, Rostelecom, Angstrem-T, RUSSOFT, Moscow State Technical University n.a. N.E. Bauman, NRU HSE, MSU. etc.
