This Internet of Things (IoT) Femto Access Point/Gateway is specifically designed for wide area smart grid applications. Applications include, but not limited to automatic meter reading, monitoring fault indicators, monitoring street lights, etc. Typical deployment is using star network configuration similar to mobile network base station. Because of its long range and many device capabilities, it is a much more cost effective way for service providers to deploy this for sensor network.
Femto Gateway in compliance with the latest LoRaWAN specification v1.0.2 and Regional Parameters v1.0.2. It support up to 8 concurrent channels for LoRa transmission. Embedded network server or packet forward mode to work with 3rd party network server. Two classes of LoRa end-device are supported- Class A and Class C. Two activation methods- ABP and OTAA. Supports Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) (supports Japan and Korea only) for downlink. Firmware can be upgraded via OTA or USB port. Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) coverage.
