“The open source LoRa Basics Station packet forwarder lowers the barrier
for companies to invest in Semtech’s LoRa Technology, as it simplifies
the management of large-scale deployments,” said Johan Stokking, CTO of
The Things Industries and co-founder of The Things Network. “The Things
Industries is well aligned with Semtech in creating developer-friendly
tools so developers can focus on optimizing their applications without
having to dive into the technical, low-level functionality of the

LoRa Basics Station offers enhanced security and remote configuration
capabilities, and leverages secure web sockets to communicate with the
LNS. LoRa Basics Station comes with a service to interact with gateways
deployed in the field and avoids firewall issues when connecting the
gateway to corporate networks. Physical access is often required to
update gateway firmware, change the network server provider or change
frequency plan. LoRa Basics Station comes with a Configuration and
Update Server (CUPS) to easily manage and update these settings, or
remotely access an individual gateway through a secure shell session on
the station.

As LoRaWAN®-based networks are increasingly leveraged in environments
with little to no Internet infrastructure, gateways filter unnecessary
packets to reduce data costs via cellular or satellite connections.
Class B device operations and Firmware Updates Over The Air (FOTA)
require accurate time synchronization between end-devices and the
network. LoRa Basics Station synchronizes gateway clocks to allow
network-wide coordination without GPS modules. This feature allows the
receive window on the devices to briefly open, minimizing power
consumption. All devices within a multicast group listen for incoming
server messages simultaneously.

“The Things Industries’ support of LoRa Basics Station will accelerate
the development of LoRa-based applications and pave the way for easier
gateway management,” said Steve Hegenderfer, Senior Director of the
Developer Ecosystem in Semtech’s Wireless Sensing and Products Group.
“LoRa Basics is fully compliant with LoRa Alliance and allows developers
as well as enterprises to rapidly develop their applications.”
