The embodiments presented herein utilize class B LoRa to avoid conflicts with Wi-SUN traffic that is on the same band. In areas covered by a LoRa edge, portions of the time slots of specific channels may be aggregated into longer time slots to adapt to LoRa spreading factors. Edge mesh nodes may use class B to pull traffic from channels of LoRa devices at the appropriate time. LoRa may be configured to operate in the appropriate channels, and any interference with Wi-SUN can be minimalized.
