||Connectivity is key for IoT and smart cities. Unfortunately,
a stable Internet connection is scarce in developing countries. LoRaWAN
standalone base station solutions can be used to fill the gaps. But since
these difficulties may not affect everyone, then, affordable wireless communication, such as Wi-Fi, with direct access to Internet from the collection node, may be useful for data transmission. This article, first, discusses a coverage study based on LoRaWAN autonomous base stations
and, then, extends the architectural model proposed in  to take into account the Wi-Fi protocol, thus diversifying the implementation choices.
A gateway (Wi-IoT) capable of providing Wi-Fi access, on the one hand,
and collecting, processing and monitoring data as a mini-server, on the
other hand, will be proposed as proof of concept. From the node to the
gateway, data will be compressed and sent securely. A user who connects
to Wi-IoT will, then, be able to access his data.
