    • ANT 2 - LTE antenna
    • ANT 3 - LoRaWAN antenna
    • ANT 4 - LoRaWAN antenna (optional)
  2. Connect the PoE Output cable to the Gateway Ethernet connector. Connect the PoE Input cable to the network connection device.

Activate your gateway

The ODU GUI is a web interface to configure all network settings. The ODU GUI uses the IP address assigned by the Gateway to enter the network setting page.

  1. Enter the IP Address assigned by the Gateway into the web browser to acquire access to the ODU GUI interface. The IP address is likely 192.168.2.13. The configuration page should look like this: GUI
  2. Login with the username and password: admin / admin

    Make sure to update the password the first time you login!

  3. Connect the gateway to The Things Network via: Packet Forward > Module 1 Settings and enter the following settings: Server Address: Router address for you region; Server Uplink Port: 1700; Server Downlink Port: 1700 Gateway Settings
  4. Save the Gateway ID, you will need this later on when adding the gateway to the Developer Console of The Things Network.
  5. Set the network settings via Network > WAN. You can choose to connect via Ethernet or 3G/LTE. Reboot the gateway after configuring the network settings.

Did you connect the gateway via 3G/LTE? It will take a few minutes before the gateway will start routing messages. To open the ODU GUI again, you should manually set the IP address: IP address: 192.168.11.100 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Router: 192.168.11.10 Now, you can access the web interface via: 192.168.11.10.

Connecting to the The Things Network Backend

  1. To connect this gateway to the The Things Network console, register the gateway using the I’m using the Legacy Packet Forwarder option.
  2. The EUI of the gateway can be derived from the Gateway ID which can be found in the ODE GUI, under Packet Forward > Module 1 Settings. Add 0000 at the beginning of the Gateway ID to get the Gateway EUI. For example 80029c10xxxx becomes 000080029c10xxxx.
  3. This is the value to be entered in the Gateway ID field on the console.
  4. Enter the other details such as location, frequency plan and router.
  5. If your configuration was successful, you should start receiving packets (if there are LoRaWAN nodes transmitting nearby).
