Gemtek has been instrumental in the development of LPWAN system solutions, and is an early provider of LoRaWAN protocol-based, end-to-end LPWAN solutions. The LoRaWAN technology is designed to connect low-cost, battery-operated sensors over long distances in harsh environments that were previously too challenging or cost-prohibitive to connect. Because of its long range, high penetration and high sensitivity capabilities, it is a much more cost effective way for service providers to deploy LoRaWAN network for sensor applications in vertical market domain.
The Macro Gateway is specifically designed for wide area smart city applications. Applications include, but not limited to automatic meter reading, monitoring fault indicators, monitoring street lights, etc. Typical deployment is using star network configuration similar to mobile network base station. This product can be configured as last mile repeater to solve sensor connectivity issue when sensor is located at edge of the coverage or out of coverage. It’s a cost effective way to provide full redundancy coverage for the entire service area.
