Connectivity On Demand

For as low as $250, get LoRaWAN network connectivity wherever you want. It’s like your own wifi network but for battery operated sensors over a much larger distance.

Whether it is a remote farm, building, warehouse, orchard, port, quarry, construction site, etc. you can now get LoRaWAN network connectivity immediately.

How it works

Simply buy a gateway, plug it into mains electricity, and attach it to your Internet connection. We are here to help to make it easy and quick.

Besides using your own network coverage, your devices can also use KotahiNet’s LoRaWAN network wherever it is available. So you get both local and national network coverage.

While KotahiNet recommends operating your LoRaWAN network at 865 MHz in New Zealand (the same frequency as our public network above), it is possible to set up your LoRaWAN network in any other permitted frequency band, such as 915 MHz.

How much it costs

The gateway cost is $250 plus GST. Each gateway can support thousands of LoRaWAN devices. Depending on your specific requirements, there are other gateway options available.

Your gateway will connect to KotahiNet. There is a monthly cost of $75 for the gateway and $1 per device. These costs are for an Internet-based network and application server which provides the intelligence and control for your network.

Revenue sharing

In many cases we are able to offer a revenue sharing option. By letting others use your LoRaWAN network, you can get back some of your costs or even make a profit. There are no security issues with this arrangement thanks to LoRaWAN’s inherent design and KotahiNet’s operational experience.

No Internet Connection?

For remote areas where there is no cable or wireless Internet connection, there are two low-cost satellite options (more information).

To connect a number of sensors, KotahiNet can supply a LoRaWAN gateway connected to low earth satellites instead of the Internet.

For one or a few sensors, the best option is direct device to low earth satellites. This does away with the need for a gateway but requires each device to be able to communicate directly with satellites. KotahiNet can provide custom devices in this case.
