Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway 4G | Incl. battery
The Kona Micro IoT Gateway is designed for business and lightweight industrial applications that require “Always On” connectivity. Configured with an internal 3G / 4G modem and built-in battery backup, the Kona Micro IoT gateway continues to operate and transmit sensor data to the network even when the main site is out of power. Easy to configure and cost-effective, it is an ideal hub for deploying enterprise applications in areas where LoRaWAN coverage is not yet readily available or for private networks where the operator needs unobstructed access to the gateways, regardless of the deployment location.

More about LoraWAN
The LoRaWAN network architecture is implemented in a star-of-stars topology in which gateways relay messages between end devices and a central network server. The gateways are connected to the network server via standard IP connections and act as a transparent bridge, simply converting RF packets into IP packets and vice versa. The wireless communication takes advantage of the Long Range characteristics of the physical LoRa layer, allowing a single-hop connection between the end device and one or more gateways. All devices are capable of bi directional communication and there is support for multicast addressing groups to efficiently utilize spectrum during tasks such as Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) upgrades or other mass distribution messages.
