I looked for information about LoRa wireless and it seems this technology is not compatible with the Edison. In the hardware guide of the Edison module you can see that the Edison’s Wireless specifications are Dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n. Looking at the LoRa specification, you can see that it is defined by the IEEE 802.15.4 standard.
You must add some extra hardware, but first think about what you want to do:
LoRa (=long range) is just the basic protocoll part (the physical layer), that can be implemented with different modules
LoRaWAN adds some more layers on a defined physical layer
For LoRaWAN you must decide which role the edison should be in the network (A, B, C)
For more information look at:
For getting started you may try the RN2483:
If you want to build up a whole network you may use this dev kit (but that is expensive):
