With their small form factor, RAK concentrator modules are suitable for both new product development and integration into existing products.

How Concentrators Work

The concentrator is an essential part of any gateway for LoRaWAN and enables the reception and transmission of data packets from and to the end devices. It can receive multiple signals to serve a large number of end devices.

How Concentrators Work

Why You Need Concentrator Modules for LPWAN?

Concentrator modules are crucial for LPWAN, facilitating broad, effective networks by integrating gateway capabilities for LoRaWAN into existing systems. They accommodate numerous devices simultaneously with their ability to communicate over multiple channels, allowing for the simultaneous processing of signals from a wide array of devices. These modules serve diverse connectivity demands across smart cities, industrial areas, and agricultural sectors.
