How To Choose The Proper LoRaWAN Gateway

how to choose the proper lorawan gateway

LoRaWAN is an LPWN (low-power, wide area networking) protocol built on a physical proprietary radio communication technique, provides network protocols for network traffic related to data collection and IoT device management. LoRaWAN enables battery-powered devices to connect to the network over a long distance using extremely low bandwidth. It is appropriate for transmitting small-size packets with a long-distance communication network.

LoRaWAN Gateway works as a bridge between end users and network servers. Signal as RF packets from the end devices can be received and forwarded by the LoRaWAN gateway into LNS( LoRaWAN Network Server). With the help of the LNS, users can easily manage applications, end devices, and gateways.    

Choosing the right LoRaWAN Gateway can help users build robust and reliable IoT system architecture. But a saturated market makes it challenging for a user to select the suitable LoRaWAN Gateway for his LoRaWAN development. So the following table shows a comparison between the trending LoRaWAN Gateways in the Market.

Dusun IoT LoRaWAN Gateway Advantages

Direct to Market

Our product is a Productized Gateway. It is direct to Market, just porting firmware. That means you do not need to do anything without transplanting applications before the productization.

OEM Solution Service

Our products have not only been awarded the CE and FCC certifications but also the IC, FAC, WPC, KC, NTC, RCM, and SRRC certifications. Products comply with international standards and are well-respected by customers worldwide.

Multiple-Protocol(Wire and Wireless)Supported

Coming with Zigbee3.0, Wi-Fi 2.4G/5G, BLE 5.2, GPS. Sending the captured data to the cloud with Wi-Fi and Ethernet.

Integrated with 3rd party (LNS) LoRaWAN Network Server

Our gateway has built-in integration with the LNS such as Helium, LORIOT, .etc. The benefit is that the developer can directly use the services provided by these platforms without the need to do the development. Thus accelerating IoT application development.

LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS)

The Things Network

The Things Network is a global collaborative IoT ecosystem based on the LoRaWAN. The Things Network is powered by The Things Stack, a LoRaWAN Network Server that enables the customers to connect wireless devices using the LoRaWAN protocol connectivity with The Things Network.

The advantage of using The Things Stack is reducing the cost and effort of managing applications, end devices, and gateways.

Amazon AWS

Amazon AWS, the world’s most popular platform for IoT devices, provides IoT services and solutions. It makes it easier to connect and manage billions of end devices. With the help of AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, a LoRaWAN Network Server, customers can easily and quickly connect end devices using the LoRaWAN protocol connectivity with the AWS cloud. The AWS IoT Core allows customers to build a private LoRaWAN network by connecting their LoRaWAN devices and gateways to the AWS cloud. The advantage of using AWS IoT Core is that customers do not need to develop and maintain their own LNS.

ChirpStack

The ChirpStack is an open-source LoRaWAN Network Server Stack, the critical component for any LoRaWAN solution. It enables you to connect LoRaWAN devices to the ChirpStack server via MQTT and TLS. This project aims to facilitate growth and creativity in the LPWAN ecosystem using the LoRaWAN protocol.

LORIOT

The LORIOT, one of the most robust, complete, and secure LoRaWAN Network Server, is designed to provide long-range IoT solution deployment anywhere in the world. In addition to proving an increasingly distributed LNS, an user-friendly software platform is also offered. The LORIOT enables individuals and businesses to build, operate, and scale their IoT network efficiently.     

LoRaWAN Gatway Use Case

The LoRaWAN Gateway powered by Dusun is fully compatible with IoT applications. It has integrated with top LoRaWAN platforms such as Thingsboard, AWS IoT Core LoRaWAN, TTN, and Chirpsstack. And it has been successfully adopted into the following use cases.

LoRaWAN Gateway for Asset Tracking

Whether you’re using LoRaWAN to track customers’ beloved pets or their packages as they leave a warehouse for delivery, Dusun LoRaWAN’s wide range provides an effective way to do it. You can use your AWS IoT core LoRaWAN or another server for tracking across a long distance.

LoRaWAN gateways help logistics companies by tracking not just the positions of assets. Still, characteristics such as the speed it travels, the package’s temperature, and other industry- or asset-specific details may affect delivery. 

LoRaWAN Gateway for Smart Apartment Management

As intelligent electric and water meters grow in popularity, utility providers can benefit from the capabilities of LoRaWAN gateways and track water and electric use within businesses, apartments, and other households. Companies can then bill based on the amount of water and electricity used or time-of-day, or reward households and enterprises for conserving resources.

LoRaWAN Gateway for Smart Agriculture

LoRaWAN gateways (DSGW-010C) can also make life easier and more efficient for farmers on the farm. Because it is easy to use, with the limited configuration required, fully scalable, reliable, and low-cost, more IoT specialists and do-it-yourselfers alike are deploying LoRaWAN gateways to facilitate communications between growing numbers of devices on the farm, From measuring environmental conditions that influence crop production to track livestock health indicators.

Our solution for agriculture enables efficiencies that reduce environmental impact, maximize yield and minimize expenses by improving the operation based on analyzing the data from the sensors.
