➜ The Semtech Packet forwarder provides basic core feature for a LoRaWAN gateway to be able to forward uplink and downlink packets.
LORIOT has significantly improved on this by creating the LORIOT Gateway Software which handles LoRa traffic and adds additional management and security features.
✔ SSH Tunnel
✔ Latency information
✔ Gateway system information
✔ Ability to ping gateway
More more details please check Software Advantages
All these feature need our integrated software running on the gateway side, which is not provided by Semtech Packet Forwarder. This is why when using Semtech Packet Forwarder, these features are not available.
