FAQs of DSGW-030 MediaTek IoT Gateway
Does DSGW-030 a LoRa BLE gateway?
DSGW-030 does not support LoRa. The major applications of our BLE LoRa gateway DSGW-014, which combines BLE 5.2 and LoRaWAN wireless communication, can be used for indoor positioning (for people and assets) and environmental monitoring. The BLE LoRa gateway receives Bluetooth beacon messages from surrounding devices and sends them to the LoRaWAN gateway installed in each building, which then sends the messages to the server.
The simplicity of installation makes this method advantageous. For on-site deployment, there is no need for wiring. You just simply install BLE beacons in the hallway’s center aisle and make them connected with LoRaWAN gateway. Low-power and long-distance transmission are made possible by Bluetooth and LoRaWAN’s conversion strengths. As a result, long-distance communication is made possible without the cost of using the cellular network.
Can DSGW-030 work as a Bluetooth gateway hub?
Yes, It has BLE module included and can work as a smart Bluetooth gateway hub. A Bluetooth gateway hub is basically the central and organizing point of your BLE-enabled network. It combines all of the signals sent by smart BLE devices and systems and forwards them to the servers over high bandwidth networks like Wi-Fi/LTE 4G/Ethernet, enabling you to connect and manage your BLE end devices and systems from one location. (Remember that the hardware that houses the software is called a Bluetooth gateway hub.
I want to purchase Zigbee Ethernet gateway, can this model support?
DSGW-030 is a multifunctional Zigbee gateway with RJ45 LAN port. It serves as a link between Zigbee-based wireless sensor networks and IP-based Ethernet wired networks, with built-in Zigbee and Ethernet protocol conversion functions. With DSGW-030 Zigbee LAN gateway, it is simpler for you to connect the nodes quickly and steadily when you use Ethernet as the backhaul connection.
What is a BLE 5 gateway?
DSGW-030 BLE 5 gateway adopts Dusun IoT‘s self-developed DSM-05D BLE module, consisting of wireless BLE SoC EFR32BG21 from Silicon Labs. High performance and low-powered, secure to IoT applications. EFR32BG21 supports BLE and Bluetooth mesh, allowing you to implement a wide range of Bluetooth IoT applications like BLE beacon location tracking, data transmission, and IoT remote monitoring.
As a BLE 5 gateway, DSGW-030 BLE hub consumes less power, allowing for longer operation and greater range. Meanwhile, BLE 5 enabled the gateway has longer communication distance and faster data transmission. You can see more Bluetooth version comparison info here.
DSGW-030 BLE 5 gateway is able to send the information temperature and humidity gathered by the BLE sensor devices, to a cloud server via RJ45 cable or WiFi, and then relays messages from the cloud server to BLE end devices. By doing so, users can see data visualization on console or mobile phone APP.
Additionally, it can also function as a Bluetooth scanning device for BLE beacon/tags. Scan the beacon, collect the beacon’s broadcasting information such as UUID, name, and RSSI, and then send the data packet to the the edge computing gateway, and then send to position engine of reliable indoor navigation platform. You may also be interested in one-way and bidirectional communication mode of Bluetooth gateways.
Is DSGW-030 a BLE-enabled router?
When a packet travels from the source to the destination, a router inspects its destination IP address, calculates the best way for it to reach its destination and then forwards it accordingly. BLE-enabled router can be seen as a router with Bluetooth module and protocol conversion functionality. DSGW-030 can be treated as a Bluetooth router providing two main connections to the internet, high speed via WiFi and low speed via Bluetooth. See more Bluetooth router vs Bluetooth gateway info here.
Can DSGW-030 be a BLE Ethernet/Wi-Fi/LTE gateway?
