LoRa Gateways and Concentrators

Our aim is to support all the gateways in the LoRa ecosystem. We provide a custom binary for each platform and each LoRa concentrator type on this list. For ease of use, we can also process data from Semtech's packet forwarder.

  • Order Gateway tested and compatible with our network, LORIOT.io binaries available.
    Production models available for purchase through manufacturer or distributors.
  • Testing Gateway tested and compatible with our network, LORIOT.io binaries available.
    Production models not yet available.
  • Preview Gateways compatible with our network, but no public LORIOT.io binaries available.
    Production models might be available. Support on request

Semtech's Packet Forwarder

By Semtech

The Packet Forwarder is not really a hardware gateway.
It is a software tool that comes preinstalled on many gateways and the IoT Starter Kit.

For a fast and easy transition to our services, we can emulate a LORIOT.io gateway based on the UDP data stream produced by the packet forwarder.
