TTIG AU915 support

I received an indoor gateway in the mail today, set it up, but no data is appearing on the console.

I went back to the datasheet and can see that AU915 is not supported until end of Q1 - Which year does this relate to?

I have four other gateways (Laird, Mtech/Raspberry Pi) and they are all working properly, so it’s not a node configuration issue.

Am I doing something wrong, or did I just pay US$120 for a paperweight and postage?

Apologies if this is answered elsewhere in a thread.

@Jeff-UK do you have any ideas on this?

Hi If by

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! :wink: >

Per the https://www.thethingsindustries.com/technology/hardware

TTIG Frequencies: EU868, US915, AS923

If you look at the US 915 bands TTN/TTI Use Sub-Band 2:

So big mis-match

AS923 Support is in 2 major country Groupings and associated channel plans (See above linked ref) are both in the higher band segments around 922-924 as is the limited subset under Korea.

So looks like sorry but you are out of luck - until Q1 (unless some of our AU cousins and colleagues can advise you otherwise (@Maj @TonySmith @ElectronicallyE @Paul_Stewart @hraftery el al) )

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…

So it’s definitely Q1 2020 they are referring to? The FAQ is pre 2019, so hoped they meant Q1 2019

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!

External one kinda exceeds my effort threshold at the moment, plus I am in a terrible place for one of those adding anything to the network since I am virtually at sea level surrounded by big hills.

Perhaps after easter I will have some more to put into an external so will be in touch if nothing internal and cheaper comes up.
