The newest software for RAK LoRa gateway! Updating

(Fomi Tong) #1

Hi, everyone

Please check the following list about UART GPS and I2C GPS:


As you see, why we use I2C GPS for RAK7243 with LTE? Because RPi has only one UART, and it must be used for RAK2013.

About the software for them:

  1. If you only want to use LoRa gateway, please download the gateway image directly from RAK website:
    https://www.rakwireless.com/en/download/LoRa/LoRa-Gateway-Image
    My team have prepared two version softwares for every LoRa gateway, including RAK831 + RPi, RAK2245 Pi Hat, RAK7243 without LTE, RAK7243 with LTE. Every device has two softwares, one is based on Raspbian OS, and the other is based on LoRa Gateway OS (Yocto). You can choose one of them to use directly.
  2. If you want to play the LoRa gateway, and want the source code of them, just find all the source code of them in RAK’s Github repositories:
    1. This one is used for RAK831, RAK2245 Pi Hat, and RAK7243 without LTE, and it is based on Raspbian OS:
      https://github.com/RAKWireless/RAK2245-RAK831-LoRaGateway-RPi-Raspbian-OS
    2. This one is used for RAK831, RAK2245 Pi Hat, and RAK7243 without LTE, and it is based on LoRa Gatewat OS:
      https://github.com/RAKWireless/RAK2245-RAK831-LoRaGateway-RPi-LoRa-Gateway-OS
    3. This one is used for RAK7243 with LTE, and it is based on Raspbian OS:
      https://github.com/RAKWireless/RAK7243-LTE-LoRaGateway-RPi-Raspbian-OS
    4. This one is used for RAK7243 with LTE, and it is based on LoRa Gateway OS:
      https://github.com/RAKWireless/RAK7243-LTE-LoRaGateway-RPi-LoRa-Gateway-OS

That’s all!
My team have worked very hard to release them during the past two month, and just release the last one of them today.
Just enjoy them. :slight_smile:

Thanks @Fomi for the OS.

I am trying to up the RAK7243 with LTE, basically a combination of [Pi3+RAK2245+RAK2013 series Cellular].

Will update here once I’ve successfully configured and tested.

Hi @sri

I believe gateway os is no longer supported so perhaps in est your time in a Raspbian based image

Hi @Hobo,

Can you redirect me to the right OS, so that I can setup the gateway?

Thank you much.

Hi @Hobo will that OS work for LTE also?

I’m finding it very hard to get documentation and anything related to cellular 2013 module.

@Hobo thanks for your inputs.

I’m testing multiples OS and gateways. Will share my inputs once the gateway is up and running.

For one gateway with RAK2245, the gateway is up and running without any issues.

I’m trying for the one with LTE.
