SILVANET BORDER GATEWAY

Distributed LoRaWAN® Gateway for Large-Scale Outdoor Networks

The Silvanet Border Gateway is placed at the border of the target forest area, typically in a forest house or near a village. The Border Gateway communicates with the Silvanet Cloud Platform, relaying messages from Wildfire Sensors (directly or indirectly via Mesh Gateways). Connectivity is provided wirelessly using the built-in LTE radio (using 4G/LTE-M with 2G/GPRS fallback) or using the built-in Ethernet adapter via a wired Internet connection. For remote deployments where there is no mobile network coverage and no access to mains power, the Silvanet Border Gateway has built-in support for satellite uplink using the SWARM satellite network. It can be operated on mains power or powered by a solar cell.
