In order to integrate remote LoRaWAN gateways into a national network, LTE connectivity is used for back-haul. This connectivity needs to be private, secure and robust.
Traffic is often sent over UDP, which results in data loss especially in times of congestion or outages.
Traditionally, VPN configuration is applied to each LoRaWAN gateway to provide connectivity to a LoRaWAN server which is connected to the Internet.
In addition, gateways can often be deployed in remote locations with no secure means of direct access meaning that if something goes wrong, an expensive and time consuming field visit is required.
With stacuity, connectivity policies can be applied centrally to route all LoRaWAN backhaul / MQTT traffic integrated at the edge of the cellular network.
This collects and buffers the LoRaWAN data and securely forwards to the downstream servers.
No per-gateway VPNs are required, and data loss due to Internet limitations is mitigated.
Also, SIMs used for back-haul in the gateway can be reached directly and securely via SSH embedded in the stacuity portal.
So, LoRaWAN operators maintain direct and secure access to their gateway devices in the field via the mobile network, saving them significant time, money and hassle if troubleshooting is required.
Our mission is empowering IoT connectivity providers and customers with control of mobile connectivity, so that they can build a better future with IoT technology.
