Tektelic Kona Micro IoT Gateway
The Kona Micro IoT Gateway is designed for enterprise and lightweight industrial applications that require “Always On” connectivity. Configured with an internal 3G/4G modem and a built-in battery backup, the Kona Micro IoT gateway continues to operate and transmits sensor data to the network even when the main site has lost power.
Simple to configure and cost effective, it is an ideal hub for deployment of enterprise-level applications in areas where LoRaWAN coverage is not yet readily available or for private networks where the operator requires unfettered access to the gateways regardless of their deployment location.

More about LoraWAN
The LoRaWAN network architecture is implemented in a star-of-stars topology in which gateways forward messages between end devices and a central network server. The gateways are connected to the network server via standard IP connections and act as a transparent bridge, simply converting RF packets into IP packets and vice versa.
The wireless communication uses the Long Range characteristics of the physical LoRaÒ layer, enabling a single hop connection between the terminal device and one or more gateways. All devices are capable of bidirectional communication and there is support for multicast addressing groups to efficiently utilize spectrum during tasks such as Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) upgrades or other mass distribution messaging.
