Semtech Network Server

This Semtech Network Server, which leverages the open LoRaWAN® protocol, is intended to help you develop and prototype Internet of Things (IoT) solutions compatible with LoRaWAN, and to get your IoT ideas off of the ground quickly and easily. With this offering, you can connect up to ten devices and three gateways, giving you a hosted environment for building and testing your solutions before you go into production.

This will enable you to:

  • Learn how to work with a network server to build IoT solutions based on the LoRaWAN networking protocol
  • Prototype and test your solutions
  • Validate the functionality of your solutions, from the end node application all the way to the cloud
  • Benchmark different solutions in a hosted environment, totally free of charge

The network server is based on the ChirpStack open-source project. You can click here for more information.
