mPCIe Smart Gateway Card

For Low-Power Long Range Networks

Bringing your gateway infrastructure into the future and enabling low-power long-range networks has never been easier. OccamSmart’s mPCIe Smart Gateway Card, for use in LoRa®-based and LoRaWANTM networks, allows you to easily add low-power long-range capabilities to your new gateway design or existing gateway infrastructure by simply installing the card into your device.

The mPCIe Smart Gateway Card delivers an easy-to-use solution for data communication in a long range, low power wireless LoRa®-based network. Each module provides eight LoRa®-based receive channels. In addition, two auxiliary receive channels are provided for LoRa® and FSK modulation. Beyond its receiver capability, the device offers a single flexible transmit channel. This transmit channel is capable of modulation at multiple bandwidths for a LoRa®-based network or FSK/GFSK.

Unlike other boards, OccamSmart’s mPCIe Smart Gateway Card incorporates a dedicated microcontroller in its design. This offloads the low-level radio-specific operations from the host device to the gateway card, decreasing host overhead and simplifying processing.
