TTN Dubai , United Arab Emirates

Let’s start a Dubai r-iot !
There is a Dubai community on TTN, it has it’s Slack group
https://join.slack.com/t/ttndubai/shared_invite/enQtNDM1NzkyODcxNTU2LWY5OTIzNzg2MzQ2NmZiOWE1MjYwYWE3NGMyZDVmNmJlOGZmOWI4ZGViNDQ0OWQ0NGQzMDVmZTZlNjc2ZmQxOTY
(well, I just started it but maybe you will be 2nd on there ?)
When a few names start showing I will try and set-up an event for us to share ideas.
CU then, Peter

ttn-dubai

welcome !

Here is the new invite link (unlike the first one in the original post, this link shouldn’t ever expire) : https://join.slack.com/t/ttndubai/shared_invite/enQtNTA4NTA3Mjg0NzU4LWNmZmNiYzNjZmM5ZDM4Y2UwYzcxZDE3Y2VhZTQ2YTE1OGJlMWU1MTFkZmZiODMzZWI0YjI0ZWU5YTFiNDRiNTE
Wishing you a splendid year-end and let’s get started truly in 2019 !
Peter

It’s early days for the the TTN community in Dubai, but this city has a knack for “putting the pedal to the metal” when it comes to developing new ideas, so join in and let’s establish a free IOT data network covering as much of the city as we can.

Do announce your presence and join our community, whether you have a node, a gateway, a keen interest or a brilliant idea !

21%20AM

A Zoom session is scheduled for Sunday 31/5/2020 at 16h00 which will mark the ‘inaugural’ event for the Dubai TTN community. The idea would be to get to know each other and decide what where we want to take this community, schedule some next events and their format and content.
Would be great if you could join, or otherwise just PM me with any preferences, ideas or comments that we can incorporate in future planning.
Stay safe, apply LoRa distancing !

The url will be https://us04web.zoom.us/j/5506437328?pwd=Z1h2S0FFTGxmaFJNbisxS3hnYzJBZz09

Does this meeting have a password? If not, best have one unless you want some unwelcome contributions from the bored teenagers of the internet.

Thanks Nick for the advice. Great to see our community helping eachother out already !
Correspondingly I have created a new Zoom url and pwd :

Topic: TTN Community Dubai #1
Time: May 31, 2020 04:00 PM Dubai
Join Zoom Meeting


Meeting ID: 760 7445 7651
Password: 4qVtZa
…now all I need to figure out is how to swap the event url on the home page of Dubai Community.
“Par” for a newbie I guess.

But by sharing the password in a public forum, you somewhat defeat it’s purpose. Albeit it will slow down those trying random meeting ID’s.

Send the password to those that request it.

Hi, just joined this group. Before I go and invest in a Lora gateway, can you advice if this is legal in UAE and any advice where to buy online? Gateways are not sold in amazon for example locally, which makes me wonder of its legality as spectrum is well controlled in UAE overall.

Have you got a definite answer from TRA on this?

Hi, I have recently left Dubai so I am no longer pursuing this actively w TRA. Its would be a shame for Dubai to try and promote tech startups and then to exert a strict monopoly on bandwidth, but I have no confirmation of the opposite either, sorry. All the best, Peter
PS anyone want to take over this community ?

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have news if it is legal to use LoraWAN in Dubai, UAE at a certain frequency/Power without any additional approvals/paperwork.

The legal element is key given that regulations are generally strictly enforced.

Regards,
