Arduino’s 1st Industrial LoRaWAN® Gateways: Arduino WisGate Edge



When you hear “Arduino” you think of Hobby Projects. But Last few years have shown that they are becoming a serious player in the Industrial Field, especially with their Pro Lineup.


Arduino has just announced the launch of 2 new out of the box, ready to use, Industrial grade LoRaWAN® Gateways for Indoor & Outdoor Use in partnership with RAKwireless™. They are:

  1. WisGate Edge Lite 2 - For Indoor Deployment

  2. WisGate Edge Pro - For Outdoor Deployment

Arduino has been steadily growing its LoRa® ecosystem, and this gateway completes its end to end offering. Wrapping both RAKwireless’s expertise and Arduino’s IoT Cloud User experience into a high-quality solution like this is the right move by Arduino to Plant its foot firmly into the industrial domain.


5 reasons to choose Arduino’s Gateways:
  1. Industrial Grade Reliability & Security

  2. Intuitive Setup due to Friendly UI/UX

  3. Extensive Technical Documentation

  4. Fully Customizable Open-Source OS

  5. Easy to Install as it comes with enclosures & accessories


Features Common to WisGate Edge Lite 2 & Edge Pro:
  1. Secure Ethernet, Wi-Fi or LTE

  2. Rapid Setup & Diagnostics

  3. SD Card Slot enables Backup & Data Logging

  4. Customizable WisGateOS - Based on OpenWRT

  5. Power over Ethernet

  6. Compatible with Cloud Offerings


Other than the above common features of the 2 versions, the 2 different models add unique features that make them ideal for different applications. Let's look at them one at a time.
