This is really big news:

Each participant in TTN Conference 2019 in Amsterdam got a brand new mini indoor TTN IoT gateway, made by Gemtek for free as a giveaway (ok, they pay for it with their fees) but, nevertheless, this is a big surprise.

Soon more than 800 new gateways are on their way to online registration.

The following are the specs:

Supports TTN and SLA
Designed for indoor usage (prototyping)
Features a setup and reset button
USB-C port (for power only)
Supports 868 or 915 frequency bands
8 channel, design v1.5 (with LBT)
Integrated antenna
ESP8266 SoC, allowing WiFi connectivity
Able to be plugged directly into a wall outlet

Both the gateways are manufactured by Gemtek and stocked and distributed by RS Components. Starting in February 2019, versions for EU and US are made available while India, Japan, China and Australia will follow in the first half of 2019. There are 4 different versions available - EU868, US915, AS923 and CN470.
