  • Secure LPWAN hardware
  • Insecure LPWAN hardware

Secure LPWAN hardware attracts the highest MSB rate multipliers for commitments of 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, or 36 months respectively: 1.025, 1.05, 1.075, 1.10, 1.15, 1.2

Insecure LPWAN hardware attracts the following lower MSBs for same commitment periods: 1.0125, 1.025, 1.0375, 1.05, 1.075, 1.1
