Overview (resum en anglès):
With the exponential growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), more and more municipalities are incorporating new technologies to effectively manage their resources and improve the quality of life for their citizens.
In this context, this work primarily focuses on the development of a LoRaWAN network for the municipality of Vila-seca as part of the effort to transform the municipality into a smart city. The motivation for this project stems from the expressed interest of the Vila-seca City Council in exploring LoRa technology for future projects. The main objective is to verify the functionality and viability of LoRaWAN technology in this particular context.

The study encompasses the planning of the technological platform and the management of equipment procurement for its deployment. Additionally, a theoretical coverage study using software has been conducted to evaluate the network's range, as well as an analysis of potential interferences within the municipality. Detailed configurations and processes are explained to establish a functional service, along with field measurements to verify the quality of the service to be provided.

Furthermore, the integration of IoT device data management with the blockchain network has been explored to enhance security and data integrity. This involves research into solutions and the implementation of all necessary elements to ensure proper functioning.

At the end of the thesis, conclusions based on the obtained results are presented, along with the challenges that arose throughout the project and the solutions implemented to address them. This critical analysis of the work enables reflection on the achieved results and provides recommendations for future work in this field.
