Mikrotik LtAP LR8 LTE Kit for LoRa®

Rate post

MikroTik products for LoRa® are ready to work with “The Things Network” - the famous open source infrastructure that provides free LoRa® network coverage and has tons of apps for your needs. 


With the help of “The Things Network” you can get started with the Internet-of-things within a day.

To fully understand what this device can do, we need to talk about Internet-of-things. Let’s start with an example. Imagine a farmer who has cattle, an irrigation system for the crops, and storage for the goods. On a day-to-day basis he needs to:

  • track the animals
  • monitor the grain stock level
  • control the irrigation system

For all these tasks the farmer can use low-cost wireless sensors. By connecting them to the LtAP - he can gather the real-time data, combine it with the location information of the vehicle, and send it to the cloud via high-speed LTE. Now all the information he needs to monitor and plan the growth of his farms is in one place. So simple and so handy.

LoRa® Technology

The wireless technology behind this is called LoRa®, which stands for Long Range. It requires very low power. That’s why LoRa® is the best way to build your Internet-of-things solutions. LoRa® can be used for anything from smart homes to agriculture, supply chains, logistics and even smart cities. Monitor parking spaces, track utility services, measure environmental data and so on - the possibilities are endless.
There is even a free server infrastructure that you can use - The Things Network, fully supported by the LtAP LR8 LTE kit. With a large community of enthusiasts and developers around the world, you will never be alone with your questions regarding the LoRa® network.
