Semtech LoRa Basics Station

Also typically used by developers during early-stage product development, LoRa Basics Station fulfils all tasks related to basic packet forwarding functionality for LoRaWAN. Its WebSocket implementation offers secure authentication along with limited channel plan configuration through the Network Server. However, traffic filtering is not supported. Onboarding requires simple configuration and registration.


Gateway registration and Software installation is only required for devices that are new to the Senet Network. If Senet provided the Gateway, no further action is necessary.
