Does anyone have a real- world comparison of various wireless networking protocols, such as Zigbee, LoRa, BTLE (and BT5, if there any production models to measure), even WiFi (any others)?
I am interested in a real-world comparison, rather than just marketing hype.
I am interested firstly in power consumption on battery and then on achievable broadcast range (plus trade-off ratio).
For my interests (and most IoT projects, I imagine), I am not interested in continuous transmission. I will probably be sending small < 128 byte packets once per minute or every few minutes, possibly hourly. That might play some role if hardware dedicated to a particular protocol has a good sleep mode when not Tx/Rx.
