About RAK® Products
RAKwireless has its main focus in creating LPWAN products with diverse application in order to solve creative challenges in any give situation. Our line of devices covers, but is not limited to the following types:, Industrial Grade LPWAN Gateways, Consumer LPWAN Gateways, LPWAN Tracker Nodes and LPWAN Environmental Monitoring Nodes.
Along with the aforementioned set of ready to use products, we also offer a number of boards and modules with open hardware and software, that are aimed at developers. The RAK™ Concentrators that come in both Pi HAT and mPCIe format are perfect for both testing and integration in finished products. Furthermore, we offer great bundles in the form of kits in case you need a solution you can fit to a number of different scenarios.
We also have a flotilla of NB-IoT devices to cater to the NB-IoT market demands. These nodes have integrated measurement sensors together with Bluetooth radios for meshing and pairing to other nearby devices that come in Arduino and Raspberry Pi form factor.
As we believe in making quality products, so do our partners. The Things Industries which is the name behind The Things Network (TTN is the largest open LoRaWAN® network to date) has been with us from the start. Our products work flawlessly and integrate seamlessly with TTN. We have recently expanded our line of gateways with support for ChirpStack, which is quickly gaining traction as one of the best alternatives to TTN when local deployment is key. Additionally, every RAKwireless Gateway comes with our own, homegrown LoRa® Server, that is built-in and makes it incredibly easy as the customer has part of the required infrastructure integrated in the Gateway itself
Thus, we are here to stay and we constantly working on getting better!
In summary, our ever-growing product family consists of:
Gate for Gateways. IoT gateways are responsible for connecting sensors and nodes and connecting them to a cloud server.
Enclosed sensing products that comes out-of-the-box for connecting to LPWAN, wired networks, and GPS.
LPWAN EVB boards that work with pluggable connector modules.
LPWAN modules that are a combination of a LoRa® radio chip plus an MCU to drive it. These are not complete nodes (no power, casing, etc.)
LPWAN boards that go one step higher than WisDuo, by adding a number of sensors to the device to gather data.
LPWAN Concentrator modules (these are the modules we provide in order to build gateways by integrating them in products).
Circuit boards in Raspberry Pi HAT form-factor. Some WisHAT modules’ sole purpose is for connecting RAK products in mPCIe form-factor to Raspberry Pi HAT form-factor, some is for adding additional solution features like GPS and PoE (Power-Over-Ethernet).
Circuit Boards compatible to Arduino Uno form-factor. WisDuino Cellular (RAK2011), the only product currently under this category, has cellular and GPS connectivity.
This category includes things that improve performance, however are not a requirement or are already included with the device in the package like antennas, lightning arrestors, casings, etc.
