We set ourselves from the perspective of a LoRaWAN network operator and we introduce a mathematical programming framework to jointly optimize network layout and network configuration at design time. The proposed framework returns the most cost-effective network layout in terms of gateways position, gateways backhaul configuration and LoRaWAN physical parameters configuration under tight constraints of end node coverage, end-to-end message transmission latency and message extraction rate. Numerical results obtained on realistic network instances demonstrate that the proposed approach leads to network configuration with superior performance with respect to coverage-only classical design policies.

Abstract

We set ourselves from the perspective of a LoRaWAN network operator and we introduce a mathematical programming framework to jointly optimize network layout and network configuration at design time. The proposed framework returns the most cost-effective network layout in terms of gateways position, gateways backhaul configuration and LoRaWAN physical parameters configuration under tight constraints of end node coverage, end-to-end message transmission latency and message extraction rate. Numerical results obtained on realistic network instances demonstrate that the proposed approach leads to network configuration with superior performance with respect to coverage-only classical design policies.
