Hi you all,
I'm new to LoRaWan and what a lot is there to read. Even so, I absolutely do not understand everything I read. Trying though!
So, after "building" a ESP8266/RFM95 single channel gateway, that did not work, and making a Raspberry/RFM95 single channel gateway (singel_chan_pkg_fwd) that does work I realize that a real TTN gateway is the way to go, providing a part of Almere Haven a TheThingsNetwork coveridge. So I ordered the RAK831 and in the mean time configuring a RPi for the RAK831.
My question to the community is: is there a "best practice"? Foremost: what software to install to make a "configure once and never look at it again gateway"?
After that there is enough to learn and research for creating nodes... (I have bought some ESP8266 and RFM95 modules, but the RFM95's seem not to be the lora modules of choice. Any help in pointing to the right direction for that is also welcome).
Thanks in advance!
