Product Description

The RAK7258 Micro Gateway is a full 8-channel LoRa Gateway with built-in Ethernet connectivity for a straightforward setup. Additionally, there is an onboard Wi-Fi setup that allows it to be easily configured via the default Wi-Fi AP mode.

As with the other RAKwireless Industrial Gateways, it also supports MQTT Bridge mode, with the option for TLS authentication.

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is supported to serve cases where wall or ceiling mounting is required without the need to install additional power lines.

The open source software for the management and configuration of this gateway device is based on OpenWRT. It has a built-in LoRa packet forwarder and a graphical user interface, allowing for a quick set-up without giving up the freedom of a fully customized solution.

The Gateway has Line-of-Sight (LoS) ranges of up to 15 km, while for highly urbanized environments it can cover more than 2 km. IT is a perfect solution for any LoRaWAN use case scenario.

The RAK Micro Gateway package includes a LoRa antenna, mounting screws, and anchors. It is a full 8-channel LoRa Gateway with built-in Ethernet connectivity for a straightforward.

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

  • Does non-LTE version support 3G?

    Hello,

    The non-LTE version has no cellular modem at all, so no support for 2,3,4G etc.

  • I’m in Australia and I’m wanting to know if I get the AU915 version can I use AS923 without having to change card? Also do they come with AU power plugs?

    Hello Sir,

    If you are referrinmg to the LoRaWAN frequency, yes you can change it in the Web UI.
    As for the plugs, I actually do not know. I have to check, but there is no one to ask in the Weekend.

  • How do I set up my RAK7258 with LoRaP2P?

    Hello,

    RAK7258 does not work in P2P mode. As a matter of fact no Gateway (RAKwireless or another brand) works in this way. Gateways listen on all channels, on al SF at the same time. If you want to work in P2P mode you simply need to have 2 LoRa Nodes.

  • My gateway connects to Internet through a 4G sim, but my celular provider assings it a public address (10.x.x.x) ¿How could I access to the gateway remotely? ¿Zerotier or similar?

    Hello Sir,

    You can smply do an SSH session if you have a public IP Adress.

  • Hi there, I'm looking at buying this unit, how do I get it to send messages (data) directly to Azure IoT Hub? Thanks!

    Hello Sir,

    We have no manual on how to do this as of now, however it is similar to the One for the RAK2245/2247.
    Please go through it and if required post a thread on the forums (forum.rakwireless.com) if you need further assistance.

  • What POE standard does it use? Eg can it be powered from an 802.3af/at switch?

    Hello Sir,

    The supperted POE is (IEEE 802.3af). So it should be able to be powered up by the switch you mentioned.

  • Hello, Is the RAK7258 gateway compatible with LoRa Server V2 or V3 ? Is downlink for class C supported ? (frequency 923MHz in the US) Thank you,

    Hello Sir,

    What exactly do you mean by comatible ?
    There is class C support.

    Regards

  • What countries can the LTE modem in the RAK7258 be used in? I'd like to use it in New Zealand.

    Hello Sir,

    You can use it in New Zealand. There is support for bands B3, B7 and B28, so you should be OK on any of the carriers.

    Regards
    Vladislav

  • are both Abe to connect to The Thing Network?

    Hello Sir,

    Yes, All RAKwireless Gateways are able to connect to TTN.

  • How does this compare performance wise to the raspberry hat version?

    RAK7258 and RAK2245 Pi HAT are very similar as far as RF parameters go, due to their Concentrator modules being very similar. The RAK7258 has the RAK2247 Concentrator module.
    Both have -139 dBm sensitivity. Max Tx power is 25dBm for the RAK7258, where the RAK2245 has 27dBm. This is not really relevant as most bands are 24dBm limited for now.
    Both are full Multi-channel Gateways, assuming you use the RAK2245 with a Raspberry Pi version. 
    RAK7258 has an LTE version, RAK2245 has an LTE HAT - RAK7243C if you want to buy the whole Gateway.
    Differences

    RAK7258 has PoE, RAK2245 does not support it with the Pi
    RAK7258 is OpenWRT based, not completelly open source, but easier to manage with Web UI, Open VPN client, packet buffer (via SD card)
    RAK2245 has GPS, RAK7258 doesn't

    In a nutshell RAK7258 full gateway with ehternet (PoE), wifi, optional lte. Easier to config and manage, let prone to tinkering.

    RAK2245 full gateway, but you need to add an MCU, does not come with one unless you get the RAK7243C. Has GPS, otional lte hat, fully opne source, however geard towards tinkerers and makers.
    Less intuitive interface and out of the box features.

    Might I ask what use case scenario you need a LoRaWAN Gateway for. Perpahs I can recommend one over the other?
