LoRaWAN Gateway based on Raspberry Pi 4.
Build your developer gateway for LoRaWAN with the RAK Raspberry Pi4 base kit - including Pi 4 (4GB), ready-to-use micro SD card with Raspbian OS pre-loaded, case, power supply, RAK2287 concentrator, PiHAT for the concentrator, and LoRa antenna.
The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest addition to the popular Raspberry Pi series. It offers an excellent increase in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity over the previous generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, while maintaining backward compatibility and similar power consumption
RAK2287 is a mini-PCIe form factor LPWAN concentrator module based on Semtech SX1302. It is an exceptional, complete and cost-effective gateway solution offering up to 10 programmable parallel demodulation paths, an 8 x 8-channel LoRa® packet detector,8x SF5-SF12 LoRa® demodulators and 8 x SF5-SF10 LoRa® demodulators. It is capable of detecting an uninterrupted combination of packets with 8 different spreading factors and 10 channels of continuous demodulation of up to 16 packets. The module is well suited for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications that require a node density of up to 500 nodes per km² in an environment with moderate interference.
