IoT Hardware Keep Coming!

Expanding the IoT Arsenal

Tagging along MikroTik's most capable Ethernet router yet - the CC2116-12G-4S+ - are three new additions to MikroTik's inventory of IoT products.

New LoRa® Solution with Antenna

wAP LR2 kit

Meet the wAP LR2 kit, an "out-of-the-box solution for LoRa®" with a free worldwide spectrum and no duty cycle limitations.

 

Following its predecessors, the wAP LR2 kit comes with a pre-installed UDP packet forwarder compatible with all public or private LoRa® servers.

 

What's notable about this hardware is that it has a 2.4 GHz WLAN interface that simlutaneously works with the 2.4 GHz frequency for LoRa® with no interference!

Don't Settle for the Default!

The wAP LR2 kit enjoys a built-in 2 dBi WLAN/4.7 dBi LoRa® antenna. But whoever said you need to settle for that?

 

With a compact size and enahnced durability, the 8 dBi external TOF-2400-8V-4 antenna can be used for an extra network coverage of about 3-4 km in the line of sight.

 

This antenna is compatible with any 2.4 GHz device, and work with both the 2.4 GHz LoRa® connectivity, as well as the regular
2.4 GHz WLAN.

As If IoT Wasn't Already Customized!

To provide you with even more flexibility, the R11e-LR2 is a new Concentrator Gateway card for the LoRa® technology in designed in the form of a mini PCIe card.

 

Using this card, you can have 2.4 GHz LoRa® connectivity for any MikroTik product that has a mini PCIe slot with connected USB lines.

 

Supporting 4 different RX channels and 1 TX channel, the R11e-LR2 allows you to create and tailor-make your own 2.4 GHz IoT projects.
