Texim Europe UP LoRa Gateway
UP LoRa Gateway is a combination of an UP board and the IMST LoRa concentrator iC880A. UP board is the computer board powered by an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Quad-Core 1.44/1.92Ghz 64 bit CPU. It supports Ubilinux, Ubuntu, Yocto, Windows 10 Enterprises and Android 5.0. And the IMST concentrator iC880A is able to receive packets from different end devices on up to 8 channels in parallel. It uses dynamic data rate adaption technology to seamlessly enhance spreading factors and signal bandwidths of transmission efficiency. This permits distant LoRa end nodes to use higher spreading factors with lower data rate, and those LoRa nodes closer to the concentrator to use lower spreading factors and higher data rate. Even multiple star topologies can work in such pattern without extra repeaters.
Nordic Automation Systems LoRaWAN Gateway
Based on NAS IER000 LoRaWAN concentrator and IMST iC880A, LoRaWAN Gateway from Nordic Automation Systems connects all LoRa products deployed towards LoRaWAN network, collecting real-time data and providing feedback, if necessary.
