With the advent of the latest technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the most widely used field in which billions of devices have been connected over the Internet. Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) is among one of the most emerging technologies that deliver packets over very long-range with extremely low power consumption. However, it faces the problem of high latency. To cope with this problem, this paper aims to evaluate LoRaWAN in terms of latency by comparing how the default latency method that exists in LoRaWAN fair against an alternative method that has been researched and presented in the literature. Furthermore, having the concrete results of the latency will help companies to determine whether LoRaWAN is a suitable technology to use for Industrial IoT (IIoT) devices. Moreover, due to its backbone TCP/IP communication support, LoRaWAN will also facilitate the future architecture for the Web of Things (WoT).
