Device activation

Over The Air Activation (OTAA)

In case of OTAA, LoRa Server will call the join-server configured by the --js-server flag which will handle the authentication of the device and the generation of the session-keys. The join-server API is specified by the LoRaWAN Backend Interfaces specification. By default LoRa App Server fulfils this role.

Activation By Personalization (ABP)

In case of ABP, LoRa Server has support for pre-activating devices through its API. Once activated, LoRa Server will handle the device in exactly the same way as an OTAA activated device.
