The Things Stack V3 Release

The Things Network is one of the world’s most popular LoRaWAN network servers for connecting and monitoring LoRaWAN end nodes and is supported by a wide range of LoRaWAN-connected products, including our Sentrius™ RG1xx gateways. Devices on The Things Network have, for many years now, connected to The Things Network Stack V2, the LoRaWAN network stack for TTN, which allows you to build and manage your own LoRaWAN network either on your own hardware or in the cloud.

As announced during The Things Conference held in January 2021, The Things Network software is upgrading to The Things Stack (TTS) V3, which rather than an update is actually a complete rebuild of TTS with a new architecture, new features, out-of-the-box integrations, extended coverage, and improved user experience.

The Things Network begun notifying users that, later this year, they’ll discontinue support for TTS V2, prompting users to migrate their devices to the V3stack. In this blog post, we’ll look at a few significant features of TTS V3, as well as why you should upgrade and how to do so.
