1.1 What is the WSPLR?

WSPLR is a LoRaWAN Gateway designed for outdoor installation, used in projects such as Smart Factory, Smart Agriculture, Smart Building, Smart Residential Area, Smart City... It supports simultaneously 8 connection channels to help receive a large number of packets from surrounding LoRaWAN sensors. The connection distance to the LoRaWAN sensors is up to 10 Km (depending on the environment and sensor types). It supports common communications such as Ethernet, LTE, WiFi. LoRa frequency support 863~870 MHz / 902~928 MHz.

This LoRaWAN Gateway is widely used in applications such as reading water meters, electricity meters, gas meter, environmental monitoring, smart farms, smart factories...

      1.4 Installation 

      Startup the LoraWAN Gateway through the following steps

      Step 1: Install the antennas of the LoRaWAN Gateway

      Install the antennas in the correct position. Make sure the antennas and Gateway are tightly connected.

      Pay attention to the direction of the SIM

      Note: If the gateway use only Ethernet port to connect to Network Sever, skip step 2

      Step 3: Connect the Ethernet cable and power up the Gateway

      Connect the Ethernet cable into RJ45 port. After that, Connect the power adapter provided to the DC jack In. The gateway will automatically turn on after powering up.

      1.5  Configure the LoRaWAN Gateway

      1.5.1 GUI Access 

      Default mode of Daviteq Gateway is DHCP. Once gateway is turned on through plugging in the DC adapter, it will automatically link to available servers. Gateway’s IP address can be found from the DHCP server. Access Gateway Web UI via the DHCP IP on browser. The default username is “admin”, and the password can be found on the back label.

      To access the GUI, follow these steps:

      Step 1: Use a computer to connect to the network that the gateway is connected. The computer can connect to that network via WiFi or Ethernet.

      Step 2: Use the IP scanning software to find the IP address of the gateway based on its Mac address that can be found on the back label.

      Step 3: Enter the IP address of the gateway in the web browser to access the configuration interface.

      For example, If the IP address of the Gateway is 192.168.1.15 , you should enter exactly that information in web browser, then the GUI will be displayed.

      Note: Configure “APN” information according to mobile service provider requirements.

      1.5.3 Lora Settings

      The LoRa menu consists of the following categories: Mode Selection, Channel Scan and Log. Configure some basic fields for the gateway operation.

      • Mode selection

      At the field, choose the "Packet Forwarder" option and click the "APPLY" button to Enable the Packet Forwarder mode. After applying the setting, the "Packet Forwarder" field can be found on the left menu.

      Need to properly configure the Server Address, Server Uplink Port, and Server Downlink Port fields. These information depend on the Network server.

      • Radio and Channel Settings

      This page is for configuring the radio 0 and radio 1 configurations of Lora, including Central Frequency, Channel Status, and Center frequency offset. The frequencies and channels are regulated by the lora-alliance, region and the network server. Below is an example of the configuration of the frequency AS923-2.
