The Cisco Wireless Gateway for LoRaWAN and Cisco Interface Module for LoRaWAN, available with Cisco Catalyst 1100 Rugged Series Routers, enable IoT implementations mandating low data rates and battery-powered end devices over long-distance connectivity. The products use long-range (LoRa) technology and comply with long-range wide-area network (LoRaWAN) specifications, defined by the LoRa Alliance.
Manage large-scale networks across changing conditions with IoT Field Network Director.
Improve spectrum utilization with up to 16 uplink channels with the gateway or up to 8 channels with the module.
The gateway embeds digital signal processor (DSP) capabilities and high-accuracy GPS specifically designed for geolocation.
The gateway supports multiple-channel diversity combinations with software configurations.
Optional integrated cellular backhaul is available through connectivity to a Cisco Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series Router.
The Cisco IOS features create robust and secure data paths crossing a public internet to their back-end platform.
“LoRaWAN plays a key role in the wireless ecosystem, providing a technology purpose-built for long range, low data rate, and low power connectivity. It's important for organizations that are considering using wireless technologies in their operations to evaluate all multi-RAN standards, whether LoRaWAN, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, etc., to address each use case with the right single- or multi-technology solution. Cisco is enabling just that by bringing LoRaWAN capability to its industrial router, enhancing an already flexible, scalable, and secure solution to meet a variety of wireless needs.”Donna Moore, CEO and chair of LoRa Alliance
“Many industries are now deploying a blanket of unlicensed long-range IoT radio coverage over their buildings, campuses, parking structures, construction sites, etc. The main difficulty is securely integrating this new infrastructure within the existing industrial network. Cisco is solving this problem with the new LoRaWAN module for the the Catalyst IR1100 Rugged Series Routers. Hundreds of thousands of these routers have already been deployed as a key component of industrial networks, and now adding LoRaWAN is a no-hassle “plug-in” option.”Olivier Hersent, CEO of Actility
