Giorgios Roussos, Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece:
Building a Sustainable, Energy-Efficient, and Secure European University using LoRaWAN: Protect your Digital Ecosystem and Enjoy! #80

This paper sheds light on integrating LoRaWAN technology—a Long-Range and Low-Power, wide-area networking protocol—within the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) to create a sustainable, energy-efficient, secure European multi-campus university ecosystem. The AUTh project advances asset management and surveillance practices through the IoT with LoRaWAN. This research articulates the project’s lifecycle from design to operation, highlighting energy and cost savings alongside enhanced coverage. It emphasizes the system’s scalability, with plans to extend the network across five campuses. AUTh showcases the substantial impact and positive outcomes such as increased safety, improved resource management, and alignment with European intelligent and eco-green standards for all HEIs. On the other hand, this case study provides detailed insights into the challenges, solutions, and best practices encountered, serving as a blueprint for educational institutions seeking to employ IoT technologies for enhanced asset management, security, and efficiency. Lastly, this study highlights the transformative impact of the project and, generally, LoRa technology in creating a connected, intelligent educational environment, setting a new standard for IoT applications in Higher Education inside and outside of Europe.
