Silvanet Mesh Gateway

The Silvanet Mesh Gateway extends the Silvanet Network to large deployments beyond the reach of the standard single-hop direct connection between sensors and gateways in standard LoRaWAN networks. The patent-pending architecture uses a multi-hop mesh network of Gateways interconnected with LoRa and each serving as a standard LoRaWAN gateway to Silvanet Wildfire Sensors and third party sensors.

The solar-powered Mesh Gateways are placed in the forest, forming a mesh network with a typical distance of 2-6 km depending on the topology and physical placement of the Mesh Gateways.

It does not require direct 4G/LTE radio or Ethernet connectivity which ensures low power consumption supported by the built-in solar panel.
