Abstract: LoRaWAN technology has been here for several years as one of LPWAN technologies. It consists of various components such as end nodes, a gateway, a network server, and an application server at the minimum. The servers have been exclusive products of commercial companies, and not many experimental or academic ones are available. Recently one such software has been developed. However, few fully functional academic ones have been reported. In this study, we implement a fully functional private independent LoRaWAN platform for the academic research of LPWAN Internet of Things (IoT) and demonstrate that our platform can support not only end-to-end LoRaWAN communication but also graphical user interface on an embedded and limited computing power system.
Keywords: LoRaWAN, LPWAN, Gateway, Network Server, Application Server.
