What we’re about

We are building a free and open-source wireless LoRaWAN IoT network, owned and operated by its users in Ithaca and Tompkins County!

Our work is based on The Things Network (TTN), an alternative (crowd-sourced, non-cellular) wireless connectivity medium for low-cost IoT sensors connected to user applications via the cloud. TTN gives a real alternative for entrepreneurs, researchers, hackers and hobbyists to deploy wireless sensors without having to figure out the complexities of cellular service or finding a Wi-Fi access point suitable for each sensor at each location.

In the fall of 2017, Tompkins County passed a budget funding Cornell Cooperative Extension to deploy the network across Tompkins County in 2018: Join us to help with deployment, siting, outreach, or just to learn about this exciting technology and how you might use it yourself.

Anyone is welcome to participate, regardless of level of technical expertise.
