Mikrotik newest out-of-the-box solution for LoRa® technology. Like the previous wAP LR kits, it contains a pre-installed UDP packet forwarder to any public or private LoRa® servers and an outdoor weatherproof wireless access point with 2.4 GHz WLAN interface and Ethernet port with PoE-in that could be used as a backend.
Here’s the difference: this device works with the 2.4 GHz frequency for LoRa® as well. That means significantly higher bandwidth, higher data rate, and less air time. And because of the Chirp modulation technology, it doesn’t interfere with the 2.4 GHz WLAN signal! A perfect solution for industrial setups with a high density of sensors.
There is a built-in 2 dBi WLAN / 4.7 dBi LoRa® antenna, but you can add an external antenna for extra coverage. Mikrotik suggests using the TOF-2400-8V-4 Omni antenna for best results.
Mikrotik have decided to keep the classic wAP form-factor that has been tested in many other MikroTik products – it can deliver excellent and stable performance in almost any weather conditions. Functional and non-intrusive design, astonishing durability, and great value remain at the core of this design.
The whole IoT community is exploring the 2.4 GHz LoRa® possibilities – join them and be among the first ones to benefit from the increased data rates.
