About the Loriot Documentation Hub

What's new in our freshly reworked knowledge base (besides the new design)?

If you have have been using our site docs.loriot.io, you may have noticed some big changes.

Changes that we hope have improved the layout, content and quick access to valuable guides and documentation.

The landing page at docs.loriot.io now acts as a gateway to the documentation of all the solutions we have released, including our carrier-grade LoRaWAN Network Server, the recently release Log Analyser and our updated Advanced Network Ranger.

The new layout with an evident search bar and direct access to the three main products

As our core product, our LoRaWAN Network Server version 6.x contains the bulk of our documentation and it may be worth highlighting a few key pages worth exploring.

If you are new to our platform and looking for support to get started, or just looking to improve your familiarity with its features, pages within User Resources is where to begin.

Connecting your first LoRaWAN® gateway and devices is typically the first actions to take and the Network and Application sections will get you going. If you have a specific gateway model to connect, you can refer to our LoRaWAN® Gateway Guides which include all the models supported by our best in class LoRaWAN® Packet Forwarder/Gateway Software.

On that topic, if you are curious why you shouldn’t use a UDP based packet forwarder, our founder Vit Prajzer wrote an excellent and concise whitepaper - LORIOT Gateway Software vs LoRa UDP Packet Forwarder.

Moving into the more advanced stages, understanding the server/device data and managing the integration with an application server, there are several pages that will provide clarity into how our solution is implemented.

Whether you are utilsing a pre-built application server integration or creating your own platform, it’s key to understand the data and format available on the network server. The data passed over to the various APIs / transport layers are always JSON formatted objects and the details on “rx” or “gw” messages and so on can be found in our API Data Format pages . In conjunction you can view step by step guides on integrating the network server with your Application server via our Application Outputs. Managing, automating and moving processes to the Application server can be achieved with utilsing our RESTful API documentation.

That is already quite a lot of information to get started and hopefully has demonstrated that docs.loriot.io is a great resource for supporting your network deployment and becoming familiar with our solution.

We appreciate that good documentation, which providers the answers you need, and ensures you can get your network off the ground without blockers, is a very valuable resource. That’s why we are actively working to add more content regularly and ensure all pages stay current with any updates and changes to 3rd party integrations.

For now, we hope you enjoy the new content/layout and keep an eye out for announcements on new pages!
