LoRa-to-Wifi Nano Gateway

The Green Stream Wireless Gateway is a low-cost, low-power, fully-rugged wide area network (LPWAN) gateway that is specially designed for quick installation into complex, hard-to-reach or hard-to-cover regions.

The gateway is ideal for:

  • Residential neighborhoods
  • Remote locations
  • Floating sensor buoys
  • Regions with limited or no infrastructure (no power and/or network connectivity)

The Green Stream Wireless Gateway acts as a transparent bridge, passing messages from sensor nodes to a backend server. Out of the box, the gateway communicates with the Green Stream Cloud but can be re-configured to communicate with other backend servers.

The gateway is housed in an IP67 rated enclosure, which means it is capable of resisting the harshest environmental factors. These include moisture, dust, wind, rain, snow and extreme heat. It provides wireless sensor connectivity in virtually any outdoor environment.

The gateway is fully autonomous. With on-board batteries and external solar panel, the gateway is capable of continuous operation in any environment. Additional solar panels can be added for regions with low or limited sunlight.

The gateway provides two forms of wireless communication: sensor node communications via LoRaWAN™, and communication to the backend server via WiFi or cellular connection.

Security

The gateway provides security and certified communications to the backend server in the form of WPA enterprise security as well as support for SSL/TLS.

Communications

The gateway supports two-way communications with up to 100 LoRaWAN™ class A sensor nodes.

The gateway can span an area of 2 km in dense locations (neighborhoods) with coverage up to 22 km in less dense areas with clear line-of-sight. Clients can easily cover an entire neighborhood with one (1) gateway device.

A half-wave IP67 rated antenna is included and attaches via external SMA connector to the gateway. Other antenna configurations (full-wave, half-wave center fed dipole) may be used to extend coverage.
