LoRaWAN Network Configuration (in Config.h)

For Over the Air (OTA) activation of an End-Device, it must be configured with the following parameters:

  1. DEVEUI (8 Bytes) : Fist 3 Bytes is the Organizationally Unique Identifier (OUI) followed by 5 bytes of unique ID.
  2. APPEUI (8 Bytes)
  3. APPKey (or DEVKEY) (16 Bytes) The parameters can be entered as shown in the figure below /media/uploads/ubhat/nwkconfig.png

LoRaWAN Transmission Configuration (in Config.h)

  • Inter-Frame Delay : One can change the delay between each frame transmission using MS_DELAY_NEXT_TX It is advisable that MS_DELAY_NEXT_TX is greater than or equal to 3sec. /media/uploads/ubhat/txtiming.png
  • Payload Length : The lenght of the payload (in bytes) to be transmitted can be configured using PAYLOAD_LENGTH /media/uploads/ubhat/payload.png
  • Data Rate : The data rate can be configured as per LoRaWAN specification using the paramter FIXED_DR /media/uploads/ubhat/datarate.png
  • Channel Configuration : In the case where the End-Device is transmitting over frequencies corresponding to a block of 8 channels, the block can be specified using CHNL_HYBRID. The value 0 corresponds to Block A, 1 corresponds to Block B and so on. /media/uploads/ubhat/hybrid.png When the End-Device transmits over more than 50 channels, CHNL_HYBRID needs to be commented out /media/uploads/ubhat/frequencyhopping.png
  • Transmit Power : The power of the data to be transmitted can be configured using the parameter FIXED_TX_POWER. The maximum transmit power allowed is as per FCC regulation, depending upon the mode of transmission. /media/uploads/ubhat/txpower.png

Serial Terminal Display

By using a serial port connection using applications such as teraterm or putty, one can view the status of the End-Device. Once the End-Device Joins the network, transmission parameters such as payload data, transmit power, battery level etc. are displayed on the terminal.

Default Application Payload

This application defaults to sending uplink data to logical port 5. The application payload consists of: /media/uploads/jknapp_smtc/payload.png

Sample Application Payload Calculation for Longitude/Latitude

Payload => 00 19 F6 352BBA A94C20 FFFF

Temperature Calculation

19H => 2510

Temp = 25/2 = 12.5 oC

Battery Level

FFH => 100 %

F6H => 96.5 %

Longitude Calculation

longitude = A94C20H => 1109507210

longitudinal coordinate = -360 + (longitude10 x 180/(223))

longitudinal coordinate = -121.93

Latitude Calculation

latitude = 352BBAH = 348460210

latitude coordinate = (latitude10 x 90/(223-1))

latitude coordinate = 37.39
