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].


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:

The gateway is currently mounted on top of the roof.


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 has been configured for "poly"-packet forwarding. This means it's not just sending data to TTN, but also to the gatewaystats.org website which gathers statistics about gateways and nodes (number of unique nodes per gateway, log of all received packets, etc.) The gateway has been upgraded to the new packet forwarder
