RAK’s José Marcelino’s and Balena’s Marc Pous demonstrated deploying RAK’s developer gateways with a new reliable and much secure protocol running on top of Balena’s container technology

Last July, our solutions architect together with Balena showcased a tutorial for provisioning RAK’s developer LPWAN gateways with the newest Packet Forwarder protocol, LoRa Basics™ Station on The Things Network (TTN). This new protocol utilizes JSON format over WebSockets (TCP based), supports TLS encryption and certificates-based authentication between the gateway and the cloud service bringing much-improved security and reliable data transmission. Many LoRaWAN® operators as well as the community are now adopting it as a replacement for the long deprecated de facto standard UDP based protocol. Read full blog here
