The ChirpStack open-source LoRaWAN Network Server stack provides open-source components for LoRaWAN networks. Together they form a ready-to-use solution including a user-friendly web-interface for device management and APIs for integration. The modular architecture makes it possible to integrate within existing infrastructures. All components are licensed under the MIT license and can be used for commercial purposes. It supports Class A, Class B, and Class C modes, as well as adaptive data-rate, live-frame logging, channel configuration, multi-tenant, APIs and integration, etc.

Connection via Semtech UDP Packet Forwarder
Chirpstack supports Semtech UDP packet forwarder that is not encrypted, less reliable (UDP-based), but its simplicity makes it work on a large number of gateways.
- For firmware version 60.0.0.x, 18.104.22.168 and later, go to “Packet Forwarder”-> “General” and click to create a Semtech type network server to Multi-Destination list.
Type the chirpstack server address to complete the configuration.
- For firmware version 87.1.0.x or before 22.214.171.124, go to “LoRaWAN”-> “Packet Forwarder” -> “General” and fill in ChirpStack server address.
Connection via ChirpStack Gateway Bridge
UG series LoRaWAN Gateway has embedded ChirpStack gateway bridge supports generic MQTT authentication (V3.5.0) and this feature only suits firmware of 60.0.0.x, 126.96.36.199 and later.
- Go to “Packet Forwarder”-> “General” and click to create a ChirpStack type network server to Multi-Destination list.
Type the chirpstack server information to complete the configuration.
1. Go to "Gateway-profiles" page to add a gateway profile.
2. Go to "Gateway" page to add a LoRaWAN gateway. Gateway ID can be found in webpage of UG6x/UG8x.
3. Go to the "GATEWAY DETAILS" page to check if gateway is online. You can also check realtime data in "LIVE LORAWAN FRAMES".
