➜ 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.


For example:

✔ 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. 


If your gateway model is not already integrated with the LORIOT Gateway Software please contact us and we can discuss adding support for this model.
