Antenna

Start a Wireless Network

Depending your location and high, you may need to add more powerfull antenna on your GW

LoRa Antennas

External and Internal Antennas with wide range of accessories

IoT Sensors

Allows anyone to build out massive, cost-effective wireless infrastructures.

Cables

HotSpots are the better way to build wireless IoT infrastructure.

Picking an antenna for your IoT device comes with many pitfalls

The antenna is crucial

Antenna Definitions

Antenna gain : is the relative measurement of an antenna’s ability to direct or concentrate the radiated signal emitting from it. Gain is measured in Dbi (decibels relative to an isotropic radiator) or Dbd (decibels relative to a dipole radiator). Isotropic radiator : is a theoretical single point in space that radiates energy equally in every direction similar to the Sun radiating its light. The isotropic radiator exhibits the same magnitude or properties when measured in all directions. It has no preferred direction of radiation. It radiates uniformly in all directions over a sphere centered on the source. Decibels: a unit used to measure the intensity of a sound or the power level of an electrical signal by comparing it with a given level on a logarithmic scale. A change in power by a factor of 10 is a 10 dB change in level. for every 3db increase on the scale, its power is doubled.

A bigger antenna doesn't necessarily mean wider/further coverage or more HNT earnings.

LoRaWAN

The LoRaWAN™ protocol is a global standard that offers a long range (up to 15km) bi-directional communications with very low power consumption, allowing operation for up to ten years on the same battery.

A bigger antenna doesn’t necessarily mean wider/further coverage or more HNT earnings. Take a look at the images above and notice the different coverage for antennas. The higher dBi antenna is,
