RAK7243C Pilot Gateway
The RAK7243C is a fully fledged 8 channel LoRaWAN™ Gateway. It consists of the following modules: RAK2245, RAK2013 and Raspberry Pi 3B+.
At its core is the Raspberry Pi 3B+, which integrates all the other hardware components and runs the OS. The RAK2245 is the concentrator module, playing the role of a LoRa transceiver. The RAK2013 provides for cellular backhaul (in addition to the Wi-Fi and Ethernet of the Raspberry Pi 3B+)
Software wise one could choose to either go with TTN or LoRaServer in addition to bringing his own solution. TTN is more suitable for public, cloud deployment. LoRa Server provides a solution that can be run on a private server or the gateway itself.
Thus the RAK7243C is a flexible solution suitable for both small scale projects, as well as large scale industrial solutions. It provides a variety of connectivity options and its size and weight make it ideal for indoor deployment.

how many packets the RAK7243C can support per day? and how will a standard shipping to Saudi Arabia will take?
The number of packets per day depends on the number of nodes,, channels used, length of the packets, etc.
In theory theory thausands, or as much as the backhaul limit is.
Does this gateway has PoE features?
No. RAK7243C Pilot Gateway does not support Power-over-Ethernet. If you need this functionality, we recommend RAK7258 which supports PoE.
This comes with SD card with OS required?
The RAK7243C Gateway should have an 16GB SD card included. However it has no software installed.
You can easily do so by following the manual linked below:
Version without LTE:
Version with LTE:
We consider this a better approach as it means you will have access to the latest firmware when the Gateway arrives.
In case you have issues flashing and configuring the gateway, let me know and you will get assistance.
