Network Server

Based on ChirpStack v4 from the ChirpStack open-source project, Semtech’s free network server is designed to allow you to connect up to 10 devices and three gateways to build and test the functionality of your LoRaWAN® solutions

With the upgrade to ChirpStack v4, the Semtech Network Server provides an integration with the open-source Device Repository from The Things Network and provides out-of-the-box support for many LoRaWAN® end devices, including payload decoders. All you need to do is select your device from the list and you’re good to go!

Another great new benefit is that the Semtech Network Server is now equipped with a new dashboard that allows you to visualize your sensor data and track device metrics.

Furthermore, the Semtech Network Server offers many integrations, including MQTT, HTTP callbacks, and IFTTT, as well as your Node-RED flows.

 

Note

While the new Semtech Network Server brings many new features and enhancements, some of these changes might break your existing integration. To use the upgraded network server, take the following steps

  • Upgrade your ChirpStack Gateway Bridge to version v3.14.0 or later; all configuration stays the same.
  • We will migrate all your data and your devices will continue working. Rest assured, you won’t even need to reactivate them.
  • If you integrated the Semtech Network Server into your own application, review the ChirpStack v4 Breaking Changes documentation for a complete listing of potential compatibility issues.
