We're busy building the network in Edinburgh. Here's our next gateway, under test in my lab. It's due to be installed on a nice high building in central Edinburgh and from that position should give great coverage.

The gateway is a Raspberry Pi 3 with an IMST iC880A-SPI concentrator, powered over Ethernet. Enclosed in a waterproof box, it's ready to be deployed outside in the fine Scottish winter.

This is the first gateway I've configured using, which has made installing the packer forwarder a straightforward process, and will hopefully make it easy to deploy updates later on.


More on the installation soon!
