FAQ

What is a Nonce?

A number that can be used only once. Used to safeguard against replay attacks. In Bluetooth Mesh, each time a message is encrypted it is given a new Nonce value.   

What is LoRaWAN 923 requirement on end devices?

LoRaWAN 1.02 spec requires the end-devices to broadcast JoinReq message on Freq 923.2-923.4 Mhz.  The max output power is 14dBm. The end devices can only use SF10BW125 to join the network, which is DR2.

What is the differnce between the RG1xx LoRaWAN Gateway and lower cost gateways?

There are a number of low cost hobbiest gateways on the market based on devices such as the Raspberry Pi, paired with a Semtech SX1272/SX1276, normally used in a LoRaWAN node. These low cost gateways often are single channel devices, operating on a single spreading factor. A single channel gateway can miss many of the LoRaWAN messages broadcast. The Laird RG1xx is an 8 channel gateway based on the industry standard Semtech SX1301/SX1257 chipset providing a scaleable solution able to receive on multiple channels/spreading factors at the same time.
