On another note, sustainable systems are on the rise as well.The start of the pandemic leads to a depletion of resources, causing panic, which leads to companies and even groups of people reassessing how distribution and purchases were made, to make sure enough resources were available to go around.Incorporating IoT meant incorporating LoRaWAN® gateways in structures such as solar panels or main servers to increase the effectiveness of communication and accuracy of the logistics whereabouts.With LoRa modules and LoRa gateways, end-users and logistics companies can both track not only where the items are but if there needs to be a replenishment of items.

Environmental sensors are one of the most common in the different Internet of Things (IoT) verticals.Their primary purpose is to analyze trends and patterns of air pollutants in the atmosphere - the gas layer surrounding a light blue body, like the Earth.The environmental monitoring depends entirely on the scenario where you intend to apply it.However, among the most relevant environmental monitoring aims to ensure the fulfillment of environmental regulations within companies in both offices and factories, perform efficiency assessment of machinery, and find human and wildlife risks, among others.https://news.rakwireless.com/connect-a-rak7204-to-helium-and-forward-its-data-to-ubidots/

(RAK), an industry leader in providing streamlined IoT technologies, has today announced the release of its new modular product series, WisBlock.Designed to be a flexible click-and-code system, products in this family showcase the use of plug-in carriers.Instead of soldering or using breadboards and Dupont wires just to link electronic pieces together, developers and engineers can separate and recombine parts only by hand...read more
Welcome!TheRAK® Documentation Center is a perfect place to explore and delve deeper into the potential of our products on the Internet of Things (IoT).Herein lies a set of comprehensive documents that provides the fundamentals and the specifications of our devices.Information curated here by our experts will help you initiate and build your next LoRa project.
The pandemic may have slowed our life down, but new experiences still abound especially in the Internet of Things (IoT).Unlike most industries that succumbed to the challenges of the global virus, IoT is striving to provide remote solutions that help uplift struggling nations.Most organizations worldwide have already implemented remote asset management, environmental monitoring, and contact tracing to continue operations.As more of these solutions are needed day by day, tech leaders need more people to ensure their quality before these versions reach the public.One of those leaders is RAKwireless.

The installation environment of outdoor LoRaWAN gateways can be seen in Figure 1.In terms of protection, it often needs to be better than indoor gateways, such as lightning protection, waterproofing, and dustproofing.Figure 1 Common installation environment of outdoor LoRaWAN gatewayThe outer shell of the outdoor LoRaWAN gateway RAK7249 supports 5 N-head antennas, and the function of each antenna is different.In actual applications, it depends on the configuration required by the customer.If 4G is required, it may not be necessary to install all of them.
The global pandemic that started last March 2020 and persisted in today’s time is still totally throwing all of us into disarray.Billions of people who had plans of traveling abroad or at least within their countries are halted and forced to remain at home.Healthcare workers from different medical fields are now obliged to attend to thousands of emergency cases of the same nature each day.
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 technologyLast 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.
What is in the box?The package contains a gateway, antenna's, port terminators, mounting brackets and a power-over-ethernet (PoE) injector.Read full article here - https://news.rakwireless.com/gateway-installation-an-in-depth-guide/
If before, Linux was only commonly used for programming projects, Linux is now dominating the scene of the Internet of Things (IoT).In a 2018 survey sponsored by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, AGILE IoT, IEEE, and the Open Mobile Alliance, Linux was hailed as the top operating system (OS) for the IoT community.Among 502 respondents, 71.8% responded with “Linux” as the most-trusted OS for their IoT devices.

While IoT’s reach has gone further to rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the additional hurdles that its deployment faces remain.Since most implementations of IoT for development use LoRaWAN protocol that leverage application servers provided by The Things Networks (TTN), the total unavailability and expensive cost of the internet in these areas mean great difficulty.Possible breakthroughs in the fields of landslide detection, water and air quality monitoring, water levels in rivers, and meteorology may never occur.These areas, where IoT application is most appealing, can experience slower fulfillment of smart city.
As the goal of IoT is to interconnect everything in the world, developers aim to extend the reach of LoRaWAN® access even to things in remote areas.At present, a number of IoT users from these areas have already begun their own LoRa® projects to improve their area’s agricultural and water systems.If you are one of them, difficulties in connecting are not new to you, most especially the challenge in having an intermittent power supply.With unexpected, frequent power outages, you absolutely cannot make the most of this promising new technology.Imagine this scenario: you are close to accessing a server from a faraway area but, your gateways suddenly shut down, making you start your whole data transfer from scratch.It is certainly a situation we do not want to find ourselves in.
