Gateways

Haystack Gateway 1.0 featuring Semtech's LoRa®

Low Cost, Convenient LoRa Connectivity

Haystack offers completed gateways featuring Semtech’s LoRa LPWAN radio for developers seeking to deploy HayTags or integrate Haystack functionality into their products or product lines. Initially available in the 915 MHz frequency band, Haystack gateways are ideal for asset tracking and other wide-area, low power mobile IoT use cases. Gateways include WiFi connectivity for easy access to any web browser along with a 2,900 mAh lithium battery to allow for use while on the move.

Currently in beta, Haystack gateways come pre-loaded with Haystack’s OpenTag DASH7 firmware stack as well as a basic browser-based geolocation and configuration application.

LONGEST RANGE • AFFORDABLE • SECURE

Superior Quality of Service

Haystack’s fully bi-directional networking stack allows for state-of-the-art error LDPC correction and Automatic Receipt Requests (ARQ’s) that enables large performance gains compared to other LPWAN gateways. Haystack error correction can result in longer range, lower power consumption, and/or fewer dropped packets and increased Quality of Service.

Operating at 915 MHz, Haystack Gateway 1.0 offers unmatched indoor as well as outdoor signal propagation.

Supports Low Power GNSS/GPS Location

Utilizing the unique multicast features of DASH7, HayTag supports real-time geolocation via GNSS/GPS without the conventional rapid power draw of cellular- or satcom-based GPS devices. Transmitting an assisted GPS datagram from the gateway in order to provide the HayTag with orbital information, time to “first fix” is typically 2-3 seconds compared to unassisted GPS which can take up to minutes for the first fix. HayTag uses a u-blox GNSS/GPS receiver. 

Mobile Ready

 
Every gateway is outfitted with a rechargeable 2,900 mAh Lithium Ion battery, enabling use cases that may require a mobile gateway. End users in search of missing assets can travel beyond a fixed gateway’s wireless coverage in order to search over a more expanded geography.

Convenient

Onboard WiFi makes configuration of gateway parameters as well as commissioning new endpoints simple. Each gateway includes a built-in browser-based geolocation and configuration application. Developers purchasing this gateway will receive access to the app’s source code and some limited documentation.
