The RAK2247 is the evolution of RAK833. It retains the same small form factor (mPCIE) and is just as easy to integrate as the previous model. It, however, comes with a number of improvements.
Its Maximum Tx power has been boosted in order to achieve even greater range, so your LoRaWAN network coverage is even wider.
The addition of the heat-sink improves thermals and allows for even more stable operation in strenuous conditions.
Last, but not least is the enhancement of the board design. Now there is a second SAW, which allows the interference resistance of the gateway this module will be powering to be boosted, as compared to the previous generation. This will be a very important feature, as LoRaWAN network deployment explodes in the coming years and their size blows out of proportions. High interference resistance, coupled with the already excellent -139dBM sensitivity will be key to supporting the increasing number of nodes in the growing network.
