Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) wireless
technologies sacrifice data throughput for long-range
communication with to preserve battery lifetime.

Andreas Färber created a design to bring LoRa PHY sockets
into the Linux kernel, with LoRaWAN MAC layered on top.
As he interacted with other LPWA or WPA network technologies
stake holders it was natural for more discussions
to surface.

This talk will give an update on where the discussions
have gone for LoRa, FSK, etc., with focus on netlink
layer, protocol families and socket addresses. Andreas
hopes to elicit more discussions and reach a consensus.
