Connectivity Management Platform Low Power Network

Use all your devices in an energy-efficient way with the Low Power Network (LPN) Powered
by LoRaWAN – the open industry standard

Objects that need a long battery life and only have space for small, lightweight batteries, can benefit from the Low Power Network (LPN). With small amounts of data to be transmitted, even over long distances, only a low level of power is needed. The LPN already covers more than 95% of the Swiss population.

Benefits of the LPN

Use the LPN and lay the foundation for new IoT networks and digital applications in your company.

Two-way communication

Interact with a device ‘in the field’ via a two-way wireless solution.

Extended battery life

Minimise your maintenance costs by using batteries with a 5–10 year lifetime.

Long range

With a wide reach and narrow bandwidth, achieve energy-efficient transmission and low networking costs.

Easy installation

Easily connect battery-operated mobile devices to the network infrastructure with sensors, removing the need for SIM cards or wiring.


Benefit from the ecosystem and receive support from leading experts: hardware providers, solution partners, system integrators and other strategic partners.

The Low Power Network as the basis for the Internet of postal Things

Digital networking of things offers countless possibilities for new services – including in the postal industry. Since spring 2017, Swiss Post and Swisscom have been developing a shared Low Power Network (LPN).

Living in a connected world

Machines, vehicles, lifts, oil tanks and many other things now communicate with each other automatically and ensure greater efficiency and security. It is equally clear that everyday items such as mailboxes or newspaper dispensers will soon be connected. The diagram below shows where the LPN fits into the whole system.
