The LoRa Alliance is a non-profit organization behind the standardization of the LoRaWAN network. The organization consists of all kinds of members from different industries (from operators and multinationals to sensor manufacturers). The members work together to drive a successful global rollout of the LoRa (Long Range Low Power) protocol, by sharing knowledge and experience and establishing collaboration between operators worldwide. The organization is responsible for the LoRaWAN standard and the issuance of certificates. The certificate indicates that a sensor functions according to the LoRaWAN standard and is compatible with all LoRaWAN networks (apart from the fact that the frequency can differ per country).
