Inside the heavy-duty case, there is a powerful 2.4 GHz wireless access point with a Gigabit Ethernet port, built-in GPS and two internal LTE antennas. There are two miniPCIe slots – one is used for the LTE modem, the other one is populated with the concentrator gateway card for LoRa® technology.

There are three powering options: DC jack, PoE-in and automotive. We have even seen users powering the LtAP with a 20 000 mAh power bank throughout the day!

Internet-of-things has never been so affordable

To fully understand what this device can do, we need to talk about Internet-of-things. Let’s start with an example. Imagine a farmer who has cattle, an irrigation system for the crops, and storage for the goods. On a day-to-day basis he needs to:

• track the animals;

• monitor the grain stock level;

• control the irrigation system

For all these tasks the farmer can use low-cost wireless sensors. By connecting them to the LtAP - he can gather the real-time data, combine it with the location information of the vehicle, and send it to the cloud via high-speed LTE. Now all the information he needs to monitor and plan the growth of his farms is in one place. So simple and so handy. The wireless technology behind this is called LoRa®, which stands for Long Range. It requires very low power. That’s why LoRa® is the best way to build your Internet-of-things solutions. LoRa® can be used for anything from smart homes to agriculture, supply chains, logistics and even smart cities. Monitor parking spaces, track utility services, measure environmental data and so on - the possibilities are endless.

There is even a free server infrastructure that you can use - The Things Network, fully supported by the LtAP LR8 LTE kit. With a large community of enthusiasts and developers around the world, you will never be alone with your questions regarding the LoRa® network.

Perfect for logistics and tracking

There are 3 MiniSIM slots you can use to set up automatic switching between mobile operators. Very convenient if you have to cross the border regularly. The device features two internal LTE antennas, but you can use the U.FL connectors to add external antennas of your choice for even better coverage. The same goes for the GPS – you can attach an external antenna as well. By the way, you can find a simple application example on the RouterOS documentation website, so you can start real-time location tracking right away!

The Things Network

MikroTik's products for LoRa® are ready to work with “The Things Network” - the famous open source infrastructure that provides free LoRa® network coverage and has tons of apps for your needs. With the help of “The Things Network” you can get started with the Internetof- things within a day. And it is easily upgradable to enterprise-grade network “The Things Industries”.

The setup is so easy - anyone can learn it. No need to reinvent the wheel – join “The Things Network” to save time and energy with smart solutions!
