Use Lora shield and RPi to build a LoRaWAN gateway

Over here,we will use the Lora Shileld,MEGA2560 and Raspberry Pi to build a single channel LoRaWAN gateway.

LoRa Technology is a wireless modulation for long-range, low-power, low-data-rate applications. By achieving a range of more than 15 kilometers in a suburban environment and more than 2 kilometers in a dense urban environment, LoRa technology solutions target multiple application domains, such as Internet-of-Things (IoT), metering, security, and machine-to-machine (M2M).

 This single channel LoRaWAN gateway is a proof-of-concept implementation,that can be used for development and node testing. It is not a replacement for a real multi channel/multi SF gateway! It supports some LoRaWAN features, but due to its static nature (single channel) it is not fullyLoRaWAN compatible (and will never be)
By default it works with the TTN backend, for testing and development.
