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 LoRaWAN™ 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, the mPCIe Smart Gateway Card has a built-in host microcontroller that manages message timing for the LoRa® gateway chipset. This unloads user tasks and eliminates any missed messages due to latency.
