LongAP Pro

Important Information

Due to global chip shortages the expected delivery date of LongAP Pro is the first half of 2022 (Q1/Q2 2022). This is only an estimate and can change. Pre-orders can not be cancelled!

 

Can you ship to my countries? Well yes and no. Yes we can ship the device to your country if it isn’t EU/US+Canada/Australia+New Zealand. But you would have to certify it yourself. This is very costly (up to 100 000 EUR). If you think this could be interesting for you please contact sales@longap.com

LongAP Pro

LongAP Pro is an outdoor LoRa-gateway that allows you to serve different IoT networks including the Helium Network. It’s designed for professional operation with a durable housing, reliable hardware and extensive management support.

LongAP Pro fully supports Helium once delivered, including earning for proof-of-coverage (Witnesses, Beacons). It will function as a Helium hotspot.

LongAP Pro can be connected to the internet via ethernet or 4G/LTE. It does not support WiFi. We are looking at supplying a WiFi-upgrade-kit for the Ethernet option.

LongAP Pro can only be powered via power-over-ethernet (PoE+ / 802.3at / 25W). A power supply is not included.

Management-dashboard

LongAP Pro will be supported by our management-dashboard that allows for secure and easy installation by using a remote onboarding procedure. The (possibly 3rd-party) installer only has to provide power by connecting the hotspot with a standard network-cable to a standardized power-over-ethernet power-supply. Onboarding and location-assertions will be handled remotely by using the 4G modem and GPS localization. The dashboard also allows for configuration and monitoring.

4G/LTE internet sharing

LongAP Pro features an unique additional ethernet port that allows it’s 4G/LTE internet to be shared with other devices. Additionally LongAP Pro will come with an affordable data-plan that can be enabled/disabled and upgraded from the same management-dashboard.

Off-grid operation

LongAP Pro will be sold with an optional solar-battery-power-supply that uses one or more solar-panels and a 12V battery. Combined with the 4G modem, this allows it to work fully off-grid and independent. The same power-supply can also be used in battery-only operation as a uninterruptible power-supply for high-availability.

Different antenna options

LongAP Pro will be sold with an optional 3 dBi or 6 dBi pole-mount LoRa antenna in addition to the 3 dBi chassis-mount antenna to support different installation options and to increase reception. The management-dashboard will allow for selecting the connected antenna and will adjust the transmission power of the LoRa module to comply with local regulations.
