Sentrius RG1xx LoRa-Enabled Gateway + Wi-Fi / Ethernet

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

Now available: TR-069 Remote Management Support and introducing new variants supporting LoRaWAN region AU915-928 and a growing number of countries in the AS923 region.

The Sentrius™ RG1xx LoRaWAN-Enabled Gateway from Laird is the ultimate in secure, scalable, robust LoRaWAN solutions. Gather data from as far as 10 miles via LoRaWAN and sync into the cloud utilizing Wi-Fi / Ethernet. The RG1xx gives you full ownership over your network, adding multi-protocol connectivity to your sensors and devices to create actionable IoT intelligence. 

Whether you’re using the IP67 certified enclosure or indoor version the RG1xx features a full onboard linux operating system, configurable via a convenient web-based interface making for a simple deployment. In addition the latest update adds TR-069 Remote Management Support into the feature list, making ongoing management in the field - alongside our Sentrius RS1xx packaged sensors - achievable.


The RG1xx conveniently pre integrates support for popular network servers, such as The Things Network (TTN) and loraserver.io (ChirpStack), and LoRaWAN certified client devices, so you can easily connect your data to a wide variety of cloud providers and applications.

New compliance with LoRa Alliance regional parameters and country radio certifications mean that, building on the existing North American (US902-928) and European (EU863-870) variants, Laird Connectivity now offer several new variants of the Sentrius RG1xx Gateways for operation in Australia (AU915 or AS923), Taiwan or New Zealand (AS923).

Note: Gateway operation cannot be switched between countries.
 

Also available: Sentrius RG1xx-M2 concentrator card, a pluggable M2.COM LoRaWAN adapter to integrate our high-performance certified LoRaWAN gateway interface into any Linux-based platform. Bring our RG1xx to the inside of your device, expanding upon Semtech drivers and reference design for improved RF performance.

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.
