• The Sagemcom Siconia® LoRaWAN® Network Server (LNS) collects the radio access traffic from End Devices though LoRaWAN® gateways and forwards the application payload to the Application Server. 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. The LNS generates OAM flows which will be consumed through API’s by the customer deployment environment.

  • 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
  • Integrates with Geolocation Solver
  • Generates OAM flows for End-Device and Gateways, accessible via API’s
  • Radio channel sniffing
  • SLA-based profiling
  • Channel plan dynamic adaptation

MAIN FEATURES
