Product Description

The RAK Starter Kit is a complete LPWAN solution. It includes everything you need to start your very own LPWAN network. The included components are sufficient to build your first Gateway and connect your LoRa Node to it.

The gateway comes pre-assembled, out of the box. You only need to flash the latest Firmware to have a fully functioning gateway. It is quick to deploy and open to developers (Raspbian based).

The WisNode LPWAN is a development board with plenty of GPIOs and an Arduino form factor so you can explore further once the toy has made your first link.

Complete documentation of this product can be found on our website documentation page.

  • Hi, I bought the RAK831 Starter kit product from piSupply. It comes with an SD card that I assume is a configured gateway software for include rpi3. The problem is that I can’t log into the OS. Could you please supply me with the username/password for the SD card? Best regards Mogens

    If the default Raspberry password does not work, then this is probably an outdated version anyway. I recommend you flash the latest firmware using the link below: https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/RAK831-Pilot-Gateway/Firmware/

    The Manual in the link below will provide you with instructions on the procedure:
