How can I get a relay to send the data over a montain flank


(Pierrot10) #1

Good day.
Actually, I have two nodes on a orchard and a gateway at 1km from the first node.
Later, I am going to move the node where there is a montain flank and some new nodes will be installed in the other side of the montain flank. It’s not a big obstacle as a … monatin… It’s like if we have to communicate over a small hill.

The main gateway will be in a side and the node 3 and 4 can not send their data to the gateway. So my idea is to have a relay to get the data from the nodes 3 and 4 and send it to the gateway.

Is there a way to work around this ot should I have two gateway, one on each sides?

My goal is to have the chipest solution and one GSM card.

With LoRaWAn can we build a node-relay or can we build a gateway-relay, or shoud I build a second gateway with a second SIM card?
How would work around this issue?

Many thank for your support
Cheers

relaying LoRaWAN messages is not possible.

So, it’s simple, the only way is to add second gateway to cover the “two” areas?

or place a gateway + antenna on top of that hill :wink:
