• The Sagemcom Siconia™ Packet Core (SPC) is a modular software suite which allows you to build LoRaWAN™ servers. The SPC contains a LoRa™ Network Server (LNS), an OAM server and a geolocation solver. The LNS supports all LoRaWAN™ compliant devices connected via LoRaWAN™ compliant gateways. Sagemcom has developed a carrier-grade LNS designed for nation-wide deployments (tens of thousands of gateways and hundreds of millions of devices). Its scalable architecture makes it also well-adapted for private networks.

  • LoRaWAN™ compliant servers
  • Field-proven through nationwide commercial rollouts
  • Modular, scalable and redundant architecture
  • Up to 50k gateways and 100 million end-points capacity
  • Highly secured communication between gateways and LNS
  • On-premise or cloud based deployment
  • Third party Join Server supported
  • Roaming ready
  • Geolocation solver
  • Devices and gateways KPIs, alarms
  • Radio channel sniffing
  • SLA-based profiling
  • Channel plan dynamic adaptation
