The LORaWAN network (Long Range Wide Area Network) has exceptional qualities, including minimal intrusion susceptibility, minimal path loss, and extremely excellent building penetration, especially in metropolitan areas. Even with sophisticated software-based modeling approaches, it is only possible to estimate the range and scope of the radio network to a limited degree - that applies to LoRa and any radiology. As a result, range and penetration tests are critical tools, particularly in the early stages, to better understand radio waves' behavior in a diverse environment. Three recorded experiments in Vijayawada city and surrounding areas are presented in this article by establishing the LoRaWan nodes in various settings in our real-time experiment three main testes conducted as: (i) five separate test scenarios in an urban setting, (ii) LoRaWAN in a suburban region, and (iii) radio signal coverage under basement rooms. In comparison to other existing technologies, we also demonstrated our test scenarios using real-time analysis and finished them using LoRaWAN.
