You are refering to The Things Indoor GW (TTIG) rather than one of the other available indoor microGW’s (I assume so from the $120 price point!) then I have to say 95% of my experience with it is around the EU868 version we use over here, however, from my understanding the AU915 support is not yet in place - only AS923 support for your longitudes I’m afraid.
<UPDATE: Ignore question just realised your new topic is listed under TTIG General Category - serves me right for reading and posting too quickly! >
Good Luck - it can aways perfrom duties holding doors open until the new support released so dont bin it! I only hope the hardware has enough slack to allow it to adapt the slightly higher uplink frequencies as needed…
Though the TTIG existed as a prior device (Tracknet.io - now back in Semtech - TABS GW, co engineered with Gemtek in Taiwan ) in 2018 it was only launched as a TTN/TTI IGW at the last Conf at end Jan and apart from the Conf giveaways at the time it didnt really start to ship in volume until well into Q2…so yeh I guess its Q1’20 - if schedule holds…
Any word on this being ready for these frequencies? Im keen to get one of these off the bat rather than messing around with a single channel gateway to play with, but I cant find the AU915-928 ones available anywhere yet.
@richms no concrete news. The MikroTik gateways are in NZ and about $350 NZ for a complete gateway including external antenna.
GoWiFi are selling them. Give me a yell (john @ wheronet) and I’ll get you a quote at cost - we should also catch up. It’s been a while since ihug days!
I wanted to dabble in Lora and was going to get the TTIG but then went all in and got a Ursalink UG87 outdoor gateway. Not very happy with it, GUI plays up, sensors have problems joining, lots of issues so far
I looked at the Mikrotik version on gowifi but I see no AU915 version?
Ttnmapper needs to receive multiple packets on multiple channels to determine a gateway is not single channel. So most likely your gateway has not forwarded mapping data on multiple channels to ttnmapper yet.
I have the ursalink one on my roof now; have bought the MikroTik one @jbkiwi suggested, all setup and tested and worked well, so that will be going to ohakune, then bought the little indoor unit one you suggested to have a play and that will be going somewhere else. Its on my desk just haven’t had a chance to play yet.
So I have the RAK7246 gateway running nicely now, easy setup once I got it powered on.
I’m wondering how well it would handle in comparison to the MikroTik one, range wise and I guess TTN packets per second wise.
I was going to get a bunch of the MikroTik ones and put them in areas I want to play, however they don’t have GPS and work out quite pricey, so was wondering if this RAK7246 would do the job + love it has GPS for the price.
