Dynamic LoRa PHY layer for MAC experimentation using FIT/CorteXlab testbed
In this paper we present a complete GNU Radio, dynamic and customizable physical (PHY) layer for long range (LoRa) transceiver, usable with the FIT/CorteXlab radio testbed and derived from the original EPFL LoRa implementation. The created adaptation, through a standardized interface, allows end-users an easy connection to an external medium access control (MAC)/upper layer to experiment scenarios in a fully reproducible and isolated environment.
It also provides several PHY layer key performance indicators and metrics such as signal to noise ratio (SNR), received signal energy, binary error rate (BER) and other, that can be used to gauge the performance of the ongoing communications as well as construct MAC layers able to use this information.
Finally, the interface allows our plug&play PHY solution to be used with any existing or newly adapted MAC layer, without having to implement it in GNU Radio. This will be demonstrated during our presentation.
