Love LoRa®? So do we! Meet Arduino’s WisGate LoRaWAN® gateways

Arduino TeamJuly 6th, 2022

Love LoRa®? Wish it were easier to design and implement complete solutions with LoRaWAN® connectivity? Now it is.

We’re happy to announce the launch of two new ready-to-use, industrial-grade gateways for LoRaWAN® connectivity for indoor and outdoor use, resulting from Arduino Pro’s partnership with RAKwireless™

The WisGate Edge Lite 2 and WisGate Edge Pro ensure secure and reliable connectivity for a wide range of professional applications. They’re suitable for medium-sized to wide area coverage in industrial environments and remote regions. Smart cities and smart agriculture to logistics and building automation. The sky’s the limit!

The WisGate Edge Lite 2 offers deep coverage indoors, ideal for applications in multi-story buildings, and features an enclosure designed for efficient cooling with optional DIN rail mounting. The WisGate Edge Pro on the other hand, with its high transmission power and dual fiberglass antennas with 5dBi gain, is the perfect fit for IoT commercial outdoor deployment, and comes with a kit for on-pole and DIN-rail installation. In addition, the WisGate Edge Pro supports up to 16 LoRa® channels thanks to a Dual LoRaWAN® Concentrator, while the WisGate Edge Lite 2 provides eight channels.

The two gateways offer solid performance and our signature user-friendly approach. Designed to boost your innovation potential, they offer an intuitive user experience, easy setup and diagnostics, exhaustive tutorials and technical documentation for both the WisGate Edge Pro and the WisGate Edge Lite 2, and hassle-free mounting accessories.

These newest additions to our growing family of hardware products complement the MKR and Portenta SOM boards, the Arduino IoT Cloud platform and our other LoRa® components with the additional features you’ve been waiting for, to easily integrate one of the leading IoT access standards into your projects.
