Following table mentions similarities and difference between LoRa and LoRaWAN terms.
|What is it?||LoRa is the modulation technique used in the physical layer of LoRaWAN network. It is basically CSS (Chirp Spread Spectrum) modulation used to provide different data rates using different spreading factors.||LoRaWAN is wireless network used as WAN (Wide Area Network) due to its wide coverage capabilities.|
|Applications||Used as robust modulation in LORaWAN system. It helps in achieving different data rates.||Used as low power, low data rate and long range wireless system. It is popular in IoT/M2M based systems.|
|operates at which layer?||It has specific function in physical layer of the system.||It has four layers viz. RF, PHY, MAC and Application layer.|
