The LoRa Gateway Bridge will not perform any authentication or authorization and all connections are accepted.
basic_station backend Configuration must
be configured with a
tls_key. The CA certificate used to sign
the server TLS certificates must be provided to the Basic Station so that the
gateway is able to authenticate the LoRa Gateway Bridge.
Added to the TLS Server Authentication, the
basic_station backend Configuration
must be configured with the
ca_cert used to sign the used Basic Station
Important: The Common Name (CN) must contain the Gateway ID (64 bits)
of each gateway as a HEX encoded string, e.g.
When using Basic Station powered gateways, assigning a Gateway Profile to a gateway within LoRa (App) Server is a requirement. As part of the connection handshake, LoRa Gateway Bridge must send the channel-plan configuration to the Basic Station. The flow for this is:
versionmessage to the LoRa Gateway Bridge
configCommand, containing the channel-plan from the Gateway Profile
router_configto the Basic Station
The Semtech Basic Station packet-forwarder backend exposes several Prometheus metrics for monitoring.
The number of WebSocket Ping/Pong requests sent and received (per event type).
The number of WebSocket messages received by the backend (per msgtype).
The number of WebSocket messages sent by the backend (per msgtype).
The number of gateway connections received by the backend.
The number of gateways that disconnected from the backend.
