Introduction

This page is about a LoRa gateway at RevSpace configured for The-Things-Network (TTN), kindly provided by Dave_O.

With this piece of hardware we are able to receive LoRa packets and forward them to The Things Network.

The Things Network act as hub and collects all these packets from hundreds of receivers world-wide. Read more about their network on their wiki. Why do we "team up" with The Things Network? [1].

Hardware

It's a Kerlink, some essential properties:

  • LoRaWAN EUI: 0000024B080606AC revspace-kerlink
  • eth0 MAC address: 02:4B:08:06:06:AC
  • Last known IPv4 in the RevSpace LAN: 10.42.45.15

The gateway is currently mounted on top of the roof.

Configuration

Configuration files for TTN in general can be found in /mnt/fsuser-1/ttn-packet-forwarder

The gateway is configured for NTP in /etc/ntp.conf to use X.nl.pool.ntp.org where X goes from 0 to 3.

The gateway uses the packet forwarder.
