Hi, there is a vague plan to cover the Hawaiian islands with LoRaWAN. Essentially up two 100 gateways could be deployed around the islands, ideally offering TTN LoRaWAN coverage on all mountains and in all valleys.
The deployment would use existing cellular connections which are limited to about 20MB/month. Would that be sufficient for gateways? I’m interested in the possible traffic handling as well as telemetry used by the gateways.
From my understanding a LoRaWAN package received by a gateway is forwarded to TTN with additional metadata information. How git is one of those?
Also, are there gateways known to use low/high telemetry or “phone to home” bandwidth? If a gateway would automatically install a 20MB firmware upgrade, the cellular connection would be overloaded.
Are the TTN Outdoof Gateways the best choice for long term deployments or would it make sense to buy the cheaper alternatives like MikroTiks wAP LR9 kit?
Thanks for all further information!
