I have rn2903 microchip module and a microchip gateway. I find difficulties in implementing it

I have all the information like device eui, app eui through mac commands. But I do not know how to connect Lora rn2903 mote to a server through gateway. Can someone please help me out with this.

At this point, is your rn2903 able to transmit data and you are trying to get it registered with your network? If so, I think the article you want is this one:


(When I did this the first time, I missed a critical step under “Application”)

This assumes you have the Loraserver stack up and running.

When I first started with Loraserver, I thought that the device had to be “connected” or “paired” to the gateway in some fashion. It does not. That is all managed through the Lora Application Server.

I am new to Lora and I really do not know how to connect them. Can you say what I should do now. I have a Lora gateway and rn2903 module. Both are from microchip. I do not know how to connect them.

In full disclosure, I’m very new as well.

Do you have a Lora server and Lora app server instance running? If not, you need to do that first. They are required to register the gateway and the application. In my case I was going for the simplest configuration for purposes of learning.

  1. I installed the lora server and lora app server on a Raspberry Pi https://www.loraserver.io/guides/debian-ubuntu/. Other installation instructions can be found here: https://www.loraserver.io/guides/

  2. Then I installed the lora gateway on the gateway device (which is recommended). I had a Multitech Conduit gateway https://www.loraserver.io/lora-gateway-bridge/gateway/multitech/. There are instructions for other gateways here https://www.loraserver.io/lora-gateway-bridge/gateway/

  3. Run the Lora app server web UI and configure the Gateway and device. https://www.loraserver.io/guides/first-gateway-device/

These are high level steps.

It’s also crucial to understand that the device and the gateway won’t have any sort of explicit pairing or connection. The device broadcasts a packet and any gateway in range will pick that transmission up.
