I am in the design stage and trying to find the right things to buy the LoRA Gateway and several LoRA end-devices to suit the following requirements.
- Sending sensor data from end-device to the application server via gateways at 1 second time intervals, approximately 20 to 40 Bytes of payload.
- I want to set up at least 1000 end-devices to the gateway.
- I want to achieve at least 10 km coverage in suburban areas.
- There is no limitation on power supply either to Gateways or End-devices as I plan to use a dedicated power supply.
- Occasionally send data (approximately 10-20 Bytes of payload) from the application server to multiple end-devices so that they can do actuation.
I would appreciate it if you can suggest options to buy the gateways and end-devices to suit the above requirements. I would also appreciate it if you can suggest an Antenna for maximum distance. Is there any limitation of the server-side setup to handle the number of gateways and end-devices?
