A wireless communication technology for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). The Internet of Things (IoT) applications depend on LPWAN to connect a large number of low power devices to the Internet over long distances. ZCNET achieves significantly higher capacity (20x over LoRa), while using less resources. ZCNET supports 8 parallel channels within a single frequency band that do not severely interfere with each other, and ZCNET can resolve collisions inside a channel by using a small range for each node.  ZCNET has been extensively tested with real-world experiments on the USRP and trace-based simulations.
