New LoRaWAN support from Thingstream

Monday, January 6, 2020 - 11:15

You can now add LoRaWAN gateways and LoRaWAN devices to Thingstream, giving you quick, easy onboarding, and the full power of Thingstream's MQTT broker, and Data Flow Manager. This new update makes it possible for messages to flow seamlessly between Things and enterprise systems regardless of the network technology used.

This means that for the first time ever, LoRaWAN devices can communicate with Thingstream IP and SN Things, and enterprise systems via the Thingstream MQTT broker.

LoRaWAN gateways with the following characteristics can now be used with Thingstream:

EU-868 8 Channel Simple packet forwarder mode

LoRaWAN devices with the following characteristics can now be used with Thingstream:

EU-868 Class A LoRaWAN version 1.0.x Support for OTAA

Support for additional gateways and devices will be added over time.

LoRaWAN Device Codecs for Flows

To make it even easier to work with your LoRaWAN device payloads, a number of device codecs have been added in the node palette which will decode the payload into a JSON object.

You'll find the available codecs in the LoRa group in the node palette of the Thingstream Data Flow Manager.

Getting Started

Just go to the Things list in the Thingstream management console, click on "Add Thing" and follow the simple instructions to get started. You can also check our LoRaWAN guide for more information
