This page describes the use of Swisscom LoRaWAN as connectivity provider in akenza
On akenza, two options are available to make use of the Swisscom LoRaWAN network:
The seamless integration from the LoRa network into akenza makes the management of already connected IoT devices and new projects effortless.
In order to manage a Swisscom LoRaWAN account, only the username and password are required. For further communication with the system in question, an API-User will be generated by akenza.
Once the credentials are entered, the integration name and how the data is processed can be specified in the next step.
If the checkbox Process Data in akenza is selected, the data will be forwarded to akenza. This only affects devices created through akenza and has no impact on already registered devices. If this option is unselected, the data will not be forwarded to akenza. Instead, devices created through akenza will have the default data route assigned, which can be configured on the Swisscom system. Alternatively, during the setup of the integration, a new data route can be created. If this option is chosen, the newly created data route will be assigned to all devices created through akenza (in addition to the data route forwarding the data to akenza, if specified).
When creating a data route, the content type and destination can be specified.
The Application Server ID can be any string, however, it would be best if a long and random generated string is used instead.
The Application Server Key needs to be a HEX string consisting of 32 characters. The functionality to generate such a random key is provided by akenza.
Creation of Data Route
After the setup, the integration gets created and the initial synchronization will start. Depending on how many devices are registered, the process can take a few minutes.
Once the synchronization succeeds, all devices will be displayed in the overview of the tab Assets. The devices can now be managed on akenza.
