Kontron has announced the TRACe LoRa-MQTT, a new integrated EN50155 fanless solution-ready platform offering a LoRa local network and transforming messages to Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) streams. Coupled with cloud connectivity services, the Kontron TRACe LoRa-MQTT is an all-in-one secure IoT gateway achieving continuous communications from LoRa-based devices to the Cloud server and enabling secure data collection and remote analysis.

Extending the family of Kontron TRACe products specifically designed for Transportation, the TRACe LoRa-MQTT embeds a LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) LoRa radio concentrator sustaining up to 8 communication channels simultaneously and Ethernet connectivity from one of the two GbE front M12 X-Coded connectors.

The Cloud connection based on standard IP Ethernet automatically transforms LoRa messages to MQTT streams and the security is guaranteed by a TLS connection using private keys both on the TRACe gateway side and on the Cloud server side.

"Achieving reliable data transmission from a fast moving platform with ground stations is a technical challenge we have successfully met," said Philippe Vincent, General manager at Kontron Toulon, "we are excited that our TRACe LoRa-MQTT gateway is already being tested on a high speed train."

In addition, the Kontron TRACe LoRa-MQTT integrates various sensors and a micro-controller for system health monitoring. Designed to EN50155 railway certification, the TRACe LoRa-MQTT ensures stable operation in the harshest environments.
