Kerlink Intros LoRaWAN IoT Gateway for Smart Cities and Buildings

Kerlink, a provider of solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced the latest member of its i-series LoRaWAN gateway line targeting use cases in smart cities, smart buildings and other digital applications that require dedicated indoor coverage and/or network densification and built-in 3G/4G backhaul.

The solution, known as Wirnet iFemtoCell-evolution, leverages the same software as Kerlink's Wirnet iBTS, iStation and iFemtoCell equipment, which allows LoRaWAN IoT network owners to reduce operational costs thanks to a simpler integration and a unique user experience. This new gateway offers a more intuitive design, the company reports, and is supported by Kerlink's Wanesy Management Center software suite for monitoring and managing IoT networks.

The new LoRaWAN gateway offers flexible power options, mixing a 90-264VAC/12VDC power supply with a jack connector provided, a 5VDC power/USB-C and an uninterrupted power supply granting 24h autonomy (accessory) to cover a wide range of field use-cases. To power small private networks, Wirnet iFemtoCell-evolution supports Kerlink Wanesy Small Private Network Version 2 (SPN2), which bundles a LoRaWAN gateway-management system and a LoRaWAN network server.

Wirnet iFemtoCell-evolution is the second new Wirnet i-series carrier-grade gateway introduced by Kerlink this year. Wirnet iStation, announced in June, is designed for outdoor LoRaWAN network deployments, delivers 4G backhaul connectivity with integrated internal antennas and meets customer requirements for outdoor LoRaWAN IoT network deployment and management, according to the company.
