Re: LoRaWAN looks great, but I don't want to pay a subscription. What's the alternative?
I have consulted Microchip support about a LoraWAN solution - node client + Lora gateway station, but they cannot show me a Lora gateway solution made by Microchip.
Does Microchip also provide a LoraWAN gateway station product? Anybody can recommend me a 3rd party LoraWAN gateway solution?
I am looking forward to your opinions.
You've contacted MC support? Honestly?
"all web search" came up with the following: https://www.microchip.com/design-centers/wireless-connectivity/low-power-wide-area-networks/lora-technology
This one clearly shows that while they provide an endpoint solution, they do not provide infrastructure beyond this.
PEBKAC / EBKAC / POBCAK / PICNIC (eventually see en.wikipedia.org)
