LoRa Wireless system uses different frequency bands in different regions of the world such as US, EU, China. Following table lists out frequency bands along with LoRa channel frequencies. Please note that both Gateway and End device can use the same frequency for transmission but at different time slots. This concept is known as TDD.

Region LoRa Frequency Band LoRa Channel Frequency
EU 863 to 870 MHz 868.10 Mhz (used by Gateway to listen )
868.30 MHz (used by Gateway to listen )
868.50 MHz (used by Gateway to listen )
864.10 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
864.30 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
864.50 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
868.10 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
868.30 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
868.50 MHz (used by End device to transmit Join Request)
US 902 to 928 MHz 902.3 MHz to 914.9 MHz spaced at 200KHz (Upstream-64 channels)
903 MHz to 914.2 MHz spaced at 1.6 MHz apart (Upstream- 8 channels)
923.3 MHz to 927.5 MHz spaced at 600KHz apart (Downstream- 8 channels)
China 779 to 787 MHz 779.5 MHz (Default channel)
779.7 MHz (Default channel)
779.9 MHz (Default channel)
779.5 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)
779.7 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)
779.9 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)
780.5 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)
780.7 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)
780.9 MHz (Used by ED to transmit Join Request)

ETSI has defined 433 to 434 MHz frequency band for LoRa application. It uses 433.175 MHz, 433.375 MHz and 433.575 MHz frequency channels.

Class B end device uses 869.525 MHz frequency channel in EU band.
