Description

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. You can also refer to below video tutorial to know the steps: 




Requirement

\1. TTS Subscription

 You will need to take a note of the Gateway ID and Gateway EUI, which is needed when Register a device in TTS.

If you chose the ‘Semtech’ packet forwarder in the this page, You cannot change the Gateway ID to yours, if not the gateway will not be online. In this example, Gateway ID= 24E124FFFEF1272B, 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.

Note:

\1. The Gateway ID cannot be reuse if you delete it in TTS

\2. 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.
