The L-gateway is a ruggedized modular outdoor LoRa® gateway | base station that enables versatile wireless connectivity to your Internet of Things (IoT) applications. LoRa® RF technology has been pioneered by Semtech and is a 2-way wireless solution, operating in the license exempt ISM bands, that complements M2M cellular infrastructure. LoRa® provides a low-cost way to connect battery operated and mobile devices to the network infrastructure. The function of the L-gateway is to forward received RF packets to an external server through a IP/UDP link. It also transmits RF packets that are sent by the external server. The L-gateway is standard equipped with one LoRa® radio, a GPS receiver and an advanced 2G/3G modem. Optionally it can be expanded with two additional LoRa® radio’s to turn the unit into a sectorized base station. To facilitate GPS-less localization services every L-gateway is synchronized with sub-microsecond precision to any of its neighbors through RFI’s Consensus Protocol (RCP)™. The L-Gateway has an external accessible RS-485 interface to allow easy configuration by an engineer on-site.
