parameters, thus providing useful information to fix possible problems at the vulnerable PHY layer. In particular, the
authors' attention has been focused on the dependence exhibited by PLR, a well-known key higher layer parameter, on the
values that characterize major PHY quantities, such as different configurations of the LoRa signal and intentional AWGN
power levels. However, since a comprehensive characterization requires a full factorial experiment, that could take a lot
of time and become expensive for manufacturers, the authors
propose to carry out the Cross-Layer analysis through a proper
design of experimental technique, namely CCD, instead of the
full factorial experiment, to notably reduce the number of experiments without loss of the useful information and model
accuracy. The feasibility of the proposed approach has been experimentally proved using a suitable measurement procedure.
