RG-02 Indoor LoRaWAN gateway

Overview

RG-02 Indoor LoRaWAN gateway

The RG-02 is an indoor-type LoRaWAN gateway which supports Semtech packet forwarder and LoRaWAN base station functions and compatible with the standard LoRaWAN protocol.

RG-02 adopts the SX1301 LoRa RF baseband chip + 2x SX1257 RF front-end combination design, and supports 10 programmable parallel demodulation paths.

The gateway supports various connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and 3G / 4G cellular, which can easily be used for various application.

The RG-02 has a variety of standard LoRaWAN-band options preset to adapt to different countries and regions. Users can customize the frequency band and build a private LoRa network as well.

RG-02, can communicate with the ABP LoRaWAN terminal node without a LoRaWAN server and realizes the data resolution and forwarding functions by the gateway itself.

This lightweight deployment approach is very easy for system integrators to connect it directly to existing IoT applications. No need to build a LoRaWAN servers or use third-party LoRaWAN services.
