LoRaWAN gateway serves as the backbone of the LoRaWAN IoT architecture’s star topology network. It gathers data from LoRaWAN devices and transmits it to the LoRaWAN network server. A LoRaWAN IoT network is not possible without the IoT LoRaWAN gateway.
Dusun IoT manufactures industrial level IoT LoRa Gateways for Indoor and outdoor using scenarios. It has a LoRa concentrator that receives RF signals from LoRaWAN devices and converts them to signals compatible with a LoRaWAN network server, such as Wi-Fi, in order to deliver data to the cloud.
Wireless network coverage may be readily and economically scaled up with the LoRaWAN network topology by deploying multiple LoRaWAN gateways. If one gateway fails, the data from the end nodes can still be received by other gateways. This will improve network reliability while also lowering maintenance costs.
The LoRaWAN® network architecture uses a star-of-stars topology, with LoRa gateways relaying messages between end-devices and network servers. End nodes will gather information, LoRa gateway hardware concentrate and upload data. A LoRaWAN network server will consolidate data and upload to the respective application server while simultaneously implementing device authentication, and an application server will process or display data.
Reminder: LoRa is a proprietary modulation format owned by Semtech.It is a physical layer modulation technique used in LoRaWAN communication technology. LoRaWAN is an open standard maintained by the LoRa Alliance that defines the communication protocol based on LoRa chips, as well as media access control (MAC) at the data link layer.
Public LoRaWAN networks are relatively widespread in urban areas, establishing it is also simple, and the expenses of accessing the network are thus maintained low, making it an economical alternative.
However, Some may choose for private LoRaWAN networks, which are a little more sophisticated but have the advantage of being able to readily monitor traffic without relying on a third party. You have complete control over the gateway’s position, which can boost efficiency and allow you to work even in the most remote or difficult-to-reach regions.
Running a private LoRaWAN network also allows you to customize capacity per gateway and load your own firmware to make it genuinely specialized for its role. In general, a private LoRaWAN gateway provides greater edge processing flexibility and security.
Dusun LoRaWAN’s wide range makes it easy to track customers’ pets or packages as they leave a warehouse. For long-distance tracking, use AWS IoT core LoRaWAN or another server. LoRaWAN gateways help logistics companies track asset locations, speed, temperature, and other details that may affect delivery.
As smart electric and water meters gain popularity, utility providers can track water and electric use in businesses, apartments, and other homes using LoRaWAN gateways. Companies can bill based on water and electricity use, time of day, or reward households and businesses for conserving resources.
Farmers benefit from LoRaWAN gateways. Because it’s easy to use, fully scalable, reliable, and low-cost, IoT specialists and do-it-yourselfers 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 agriculture solution reduces environmental impact, maximizes yield, and reduces costs by analyzing sensor data.

Sample orders generally ship within 3-10 days. For mass production orders, delivery is generally arranged within 4-6 weeks from the payment date. If there is custom demand, the time negotiated by both parties shall prevail. The transportation method generally adopts UPS logistics by default, and customers can communicate with the sales person in charge if they have specific needs.
Theoretical amount: assuming the amount of data packets a single LoRaWAN gateway receives per day is A, and the packet frequency of each node is B data packets per hour. The theoretical maximum number of nodes that may be supported by a single gateway is computed as S=A/(24* B).
Actual amount: The real value of the maximum nodes that a single gateway can support is far more difficult than the theoretical figure. The maximum amount of data packets a gateway may receive per day is known, but the challenge resides in how many packets each node delivers each day.
In the same application, the overall amount of data sent from the nodes every day is known, but the packet length and transmission rate will be transferred are unknown. If the packet length varies, the number of packets transmitted must also vary. Therefore, it is recommended to consult with our FAE engineers regarding the network capacity of LoRaWAN gateways.
