In our LoRaWAN node’s development, we tested multiple LoRaWAN gateway, and find that this SenseCAP from Seeed is a relative good choice. The Seeed SenseCAP M2 Multi-Platform LoRaWAN Gateway is a standard LoRaWAN gateway that supports connecting to different network servers. It supports global LoRaWAN frequency plans from 865 MHz to 923 MHz and can be used in multiple LoRaWAN applications like smart building, environmental monitoring systems, precision farming, etc. It has wide-range coverage and strong signal output capability and other features, making it the perfect gateway for building a LoRaWAN network.
Support Multiple LoRaWAN® Network Servers: Compatible with multiple LNS like AWS, TTN, ChirpStack, etc. via using the Packet Forwarder / Basics™ Station mode.
Built-in LoRaWAN Network Server: Based on Chirpstack, provides a fast and reliable solution for launching a LoRaWAN network.
Built-in SenseCAP Local Console for Configuration: Provides a simple setup experience to configure the device on Web UI through Wi-Fi AP and Ethernet.
Support Power-over-Ethernet (PoE): For users who need to power the gateway on Ethernet instead of an extra power supply cable, the PoE feature is also added to this device, making your deployment more reliable and faster.
Wide-range Coverage and Strong Signal: Provides up to 10km of LoRaWAN® coverage and strong signal, allowing users to send data with extremely long ranges at low data rates.
Excellent and Stable Performance: The gateway is powered by the mature hardware solution MT7628 and Semtech SX1302 baseband Long Range chip. It supports Cellular(optional)、Wi-Fi and Ethernet internet connection.
Professional Management Tools and Cloud Services: Users could easily set up the gateway in a few simple steps via Web Interface. SenseCAP Portal and SenseCAP Local Console are also developed for users to monitor and manage the gateway efficiently and easily
The Gateway can be set up easily out of the box. Users can bind and manage the device through SenseCAP Mate APP and SenseCAP Portal in 4 steps. After that, users can start configuring the sensors in the same way to create the LoRaWAN® network solutions.
