Keele Community to cover S.East Cheshire & North Staffordshire


The Things Network User

Posted on 19-02-2021

We have initiated a new TTN Community to service the needs of Keele, Stock-on-Trent a surrounding swathe of countryside , towns, and villages covering a radius of approximately 15-20km over South East Cheshire and North Staffordshire, from Congleton and Crew to the north to Stone and Eccleshall to the south.

The first TTN LoRaWAN Gateways located in the Community area are now being captured on the Keel Community map, with more to be added in the coming weeks and months. These include 'full-fat' industrial GW's such as the Digital Catapult/Things-Connected Kerlink unit located at Keele University and a number of low cost systems such as The Things Indoor GW, including one recently relocated from Manchester/Salford area to near the A34 at the west side of Astbury Mere Country Park & Lake south west of Congleton.

Please feel free to start adding devices and sensors, where you can get coverage, we will be updating with coverage data as tests are conducted through the rest of the year. If you cant get coverage please look to add your own gateway as we start to build this network together.
