Indoor LoRaWAN Gateway for SMART Applications

The new UG65 LoRaWAN gateway from ICP Germany features 8 simultaneous channels, more than 2000 LoRaWAN nodes, and a high-performance quad-core processor.

Designed for indoor use, the UG65 can process data from sensors at a distance of up to 10km. The LoRa protocol V1.0 and V1.0.2 of class A and C are supported. Inside, a 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 with a clock speed of 1,500 MHz is present. Furthermore, the UG65 has 512MB DDR RAM, 8GB eMMC memory, a 10/100/1000 Base-T network connection, WLAN according to IEEE 801.11 b/g/n standard, and optional 2G/3G/4G mobile network access.

The UG65 offers an IP65 protected housing measuring 180x110x57 mm and can be mounted directly at the workstation, on the wall, or on a pole. The temperature range of -40 °C to +70 °C also allows operation in protected outdoor installations. The UG65 can be operated either with a voltage of 9 to 24 volts DC, or alternatively via the PoE 802.3 af-enabled LAN connection.

Common network functionalities, for example protocols like MQTT, TCP, UDP, VPN tunnels like OpenVPN, DMVPN, access authentication like CHAP, PAP, firewall functionalities, and management options are inherent to the UG65. From the sensor to the cloud, the UG65 offers system integrators a wide range of options for bringing their data to the cloud.
