EN50155 Fanless IoT Gateway with LoRa® wireless RF IC solution

Kontron TRACe-LP1 is an EN50155 (rolling-stock) fanless solution ready platform offering LoRaWAN™ local network and transforming messages to secure MQTT streams directly at the edge.  TRACe-LP1 is designed for severe environment (temperature, vibrations, ...) including EN50155 rolling stock conditions. A private network based on LoRaWAN™ can be instantaneously built without subscribing to a telecom operator network. When needed, the gateway can be installed on a moving platform (train, ship, vehicle, ...) creating a mobile LoRaWAN™ network.The TRACe-LP1 embeds a LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) radio concentrator based on Semtech's LoRa® wireless RF IC solution that can sustain eight communication channels simultaneously, and an Ethernet connectivity from one of the 2x GbE M12 X-Coded connectors.

Cloud or on premise connection is based on standard IP Ethernet. The gateway automatically transforms LoRaWAN™ messages to a secure MQTT stream that is “pushed” on a remote MQTT server. The connection to the MQTT server is secured by TLS connection using private keys on both sides: the TRACe gateway and the MQTT Server. Optionally, based on a yearly fee model, a Cloud server is accessible on a public URL to retreive the data from the TRACe Gateways.

Cloud connection is based on standard IP Ethernet or through optional Wi-Fi or 4G LTE. It automatically transforms messages gathered from LoRaWAN™ certified sensors to secure MQTT streams that can be “pushed” on the cloud or on-premises servers. The connection is secured by TLS connection using private keys used on both sides; The TRACe gateway and the Cloud server. Based on a yearly fee model, Kontron also propose an optional Cloud server accessible on a public URL hosting the connectivity (MQTT broker) and data collection from the TRACe Gateways.

Powered by Kontron SEC-Line solution including OpenWRT based hypervisor and OpCenter remote management tool (to control and monitor the fleet of Gateways and configure / associate LoRa objects), Kontron TRACe-LP1 is a  powerful gateway featuring an Intel® Atom quad core CPU with virtualization support . The Edge Computing option offers a local data processing engine feature via a fully integrated Virtual Machine which can be used to run customer OS and application software. The VM can receive the MQTT datastream and perform edge analytics or general FOG computing.

Thanks to the system openness and performance, beyond the LoRa/MQTT gateway communication services and security, various customers’ applications like maintenance, remote control, remote diagnostic, entertainment, video recording, operator information and much more can be launched in parallel.
