TSCH-over-LoRa is a long range and reliable IPv6 multi-hop solution that aims at combining the reliability of TSCH (Time-Slotted, Channel Hopping) together with the long range capabilities of LoRa. TSCH-over-LoRa brings mesh IPv6 networking to LoRa devices, enabling the use of standard protocols (such as RPL, UDP, and CoAP) and long range operation to TSCH/6TiSCH industrial wireless IoT networks. We design, implement, and integrate TSCH-over-LoRa into the TSCH/6TiSCH networking stack of the Contiki-NG operating system and experimentally demonstrate its compatibility with higher-level protocols and its resilience to interference.
