Paper Abstract

The significant expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) field and unique requirements of the IoT devices bring new technologies created exclusively to provide wireless connectivity for the IoT devices. Among these technologies, we can include LoRa technology. Unlike some other LPWANs, LoRa technology is an open standard, and it allows us to build private networks. We took advantage of that and developed our gateway. The paper deals with a proposal of network infrastructure and the hardware solution of the LoRaWAN gateway based on the second generation of monolithic microcomputer Raspberry Pi model B and fully compatible LoRaWAN 868 MHz iC880A concentrator. The concentrator is connected to Raspberry Pi via Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI). In 2018, five gateways were deployed to cover a nearly entire area of Ostrava city in the Czech Republic and its surrounding areas with LoRaWAN signal. Our solution uses The Things Network platform to connect to a global open crowd-sourced IoT data network. For the end-users comfort, we implemented a web application that serves as a backend for registration of the end-devices to the LoRaWAN network, and it provides access to the history of all uplink messages transmitted by end-devices and received by LoRaWAN network. The next part of the article discusses end-device proposed for network availability testing.
