The following instructions are to be followed to onboard LoRaWAN gateways to work with the myDevices Network Server.
The Semtech packet forwarder config.json file needs to be configured to regional frequencies and on Sub-Band 2 (FSB2)
myDevices uses the Sub-Band 2 (FSB2) channels.
- Uplink channels 1-9 (RX1)
- 869.525 - SF9BW125 (RX2 downlink only)
For any other specific regions, please refer to the TTN Frequency Plan page: https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/lorawan/frequency-plans.html
server_address of the
gateway_conf to one of the address below, according to the region.
For other regions, refer to the table below:
The gateway should include a cronjob / watchdog that will check every 1-5 minutes to see if the packet forwarder is running. If the packet forwarder is not running, the cronjob should then restart the packet forwarder.
Here is an example of a cronjob we have used for the Semtech Packet Forwarder:
After configuring the gateway, please submit a support ticket to register the gateway to our network server. Please, be sure to include the Gateway EUI.
