SILVANET MESH GATEWAY

Distributed LoRaWAN® Gateway for Large-Scale Outdoor Networks

The Silvanet Mesh Gateway extends the Silvanet Network to large deployments beyond the reach of the standard single-hop direct connection between sensors and gateways in standard LoRaWAN networks. The patent-pending architecture uses a multi-hop mesh network of Gateways interconnected with LoRa and each serving as a standard LoRaWAN gateway to Silvanet Wildfire Sensors and 3rd party sensors. The solar-powered Mesh Gateways are placed in the forest itself, forming a mesh network with a typical distance of 2-6 km depending on topology and physical placement of the Mesh Gateways. The Mesh Gateway only uses the LoRa radio to communicate with other Mesh Gateways or a Border Gateway. It does not require direct 4G/LTE radio or Ethernet connectivity which ensures low power consumption supported by the built-in solar panel.
