LoRaWAN Frequency bands, data rate, EIRP Australia (AU region)

This page describes LoRaWAN Frequency bands and channels used in Australia (AU region).It also mentions data rate and Tx power (i.e. EIRP).

LoRaWAN frequency bands, channels, EIRP and data rate requirements are specific to different parts of the world. Let us check these values for AU (Australia).

What is LoRaWAN frequency bands used in Australia ?

Band AU915-928 which covers 915 MHz to 928 MHz is used in Australia for LoRaWAN system. Channel frequencies used are divided as follows.
➨In upstream, 64 channels are starting at 915.2 MHz till 927.8 Mhz with linear spacing of 200 KHz.
➨In upstream, 8 channels are starting at 915.9 MHz till 927.1 MHz with linear spacing of 1.6 MHz.
➨In downstream, 8 channels are starting at 923.3 MHz till 927.5 MHz with linear spacing of 600 KHz.

The table also mentions modulation, BW (125 KHz), channels, bit rate and duty cycle.
