Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway PoE Ethernet | Excl. back-up battery
The Kona Micro IoT Gateway PoE 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 their deployment location.
Features Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway PoE Ethernet:
- Channels: 8 Rx / 1 Tx
- Internet connection: 3G / 4G, Ethernet
- Battery backup: Optional
The advantage of Power over Ethernet is that PoE-enabled devices receive both power and data over a single network cable. No separate power adapter is required to power the device, making it easier to place neatly and at a greater distance from an electrical outlet.
Applications for LoRaWAN gateways:
Key distinguishing features:
- Enable critical business IoT applications with ‘Always On’ connectivity.
- Battery backup and an integrated 3G / 4G modem.
- Reduce installation costs with plug-n-play installation with a customized factory image.
- Improve coverage and service, resulting in greater IoT application adoption and customer satisfaction.
- Simplify management with the KonaFT OAM tool.
- Operational status indicated with multi-functional LED.
- Fully integrated with the broader ecosystem of LoRa™ network servers and sensors.
- With PoE management
Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway PoE variants:
The Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway PoE is available in four variants:
- IoT Gateway PoE, Ethernet excluding battery
- IoT Gateway PoE, Ethernet and including battery
- IoT Gateway PoE, 4G excluding battery
- IoT Gateway PoE, 4G and including battery
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 uses the Long Range characteristics of the physical LoRa layer This ensures that a single-hop connection between the end device and one or more gateways is possible. All devices are capable of bidirectional communication and there is support for multicast addressing groups to efficiently use spectrum during tasks such as Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) upgrades or other mass distribution messages.
