Are LoRaWAN devices able to transmit compressed/zipped JSON files which are 5-10 Kb big?

Furthermore I've been reading up the LoRaWAN technology to get a better understanding. I would like to have 3 RPIs (A, B and C) where 2 ("A" & "B") of them send zipped/compressed json files to the third one "C". And the plan is to send these json files to a server. Could this be done?

  • The question does not belong to Raspberry Pi. You should better ask on a LoRaWAN forum. – Ingo May 6 at 17:25
  • @Ingo Is there a LoRaWAN.SX? – 3kstc May 6 at 23:11
  • I do not understand your question. What is LoRaWAN.SX? If it is relevant to your question, please edit it. – Ingo May 7 at 7:43
  • @Ingo is there a LoRaWAN StackeXchange (SX) Forum? – 3kstc May 7 at 23:42
  • I don't know, see: stackexchange.com/sites. At sparkfun.com/privacy I have found: "We maintain accounts on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Flickr, GitHub, YouTube, Ello, and Instagram, and Tumblr.". You may also try at raspberrypi.org/forums. Does the answer on your question help you? – Ingo May 8 at 8:14

LoRa is designed for Long Range, slow data rate communications, and LoRaWAN is an implementation of it.

Here is a good description of it and its abilities...
