The Things Network, a leading provider of LoRaWAN networks and services, is upgrading its stack to v3 (TTS v3). As a leading LoRaWAN end-devices and gateways provider, Milesight IoT’s gateway can be easily connected to TTS, no matter it’s via Semtech Packet forwarder or TTN(v2) or the Basic Station. This document will guide you how to connect to TTI/TTS v3 via Semtech Packet Forwarder in Milesight LoRaWAN Gateway UG65.
- TTS Subscription
- Milesight IoT Gateway (UG65, UG67, UG85, UG87)
Step1. Login TTS
This is the login page, choose Login with The Things ID
Input the credentials and click Submit
When done, you will see this console page successfully.
Step2. Add Gateway in TTS
Login the web interface of the gateway to check frequency plan in Packet Forwarder -> Radio page. In this example, the frequency plan is EU868.
You will need to take a note of the Gateway ID and Gateway EUI, which is needed when Register a device in TTS.
You can change the Gateway ID to yours. In this example, Gateway ID= milesightug65, Gateway EUI= 24E124FFFEF1272B.
Click Register a Gateway and input the items like this,
Since this Gateway is EU868 type, we need to choose Europe 863-870Mhz in the Frequency Plan; if your gateway is other brands like AU915, you need to choose the corresponding value here.
When done, the gateway is created well.
- The Gateway ID cannot be reuse if you delete it in TTS
- The default Gateway ID in Milesight gateway is the same as Gateway EUI
Step3. Create the Packet Forwarder in Gateway
We can create a new destination in Milesight Gateway
Input *eu1.cloud.thethings.network* in this example as the destination.
Click Save and Apply the changes to take effect.
You will find it’s connected still in both the gateway and TTS side.
In the above screenshots, we can see the packets from the gateway.
In this mode, we don’t need to create the API Keys and add any certs to gateway, which is easier.
