Welcome to the October 2019 edition of our Crossword Corner.
Last month we focused on one of Semtech’s new tools: LoRa Basics™ MAC. This month we want to turn your attention to another: LoRa Basics™ Station.
LoRa Basics Station is a LoRa® packet forwarder, that is, a program that runs on the host of a LoRa-based gateway (with or without GPS), forwarding RF packets received by the concentrator (uplinks) to a LoRaWAN® Network Server (LNS) through a secured IP link. It also transmits RF packets sent by the LNS (downlinks) through the same secured IP to some device. Furthermore, it may transmit (potentially network-wide) GPS-synchronous beacon signals used for time coordinating devices within the network.
