Option’s CloudGate gateway is backed by its extensive engineering consultancy and has powerful interfaces for aggregating sensor data to Cloud environments. Option has developed a successful innovative CloudGate LoRa portfolio specifically designed for Smart Building applications. 

CloudGate gateways are LoRaWAN® technology enabled, connecting to the vast majority of the world’s leading LoRaWAN Network Providers such as Actility.  CloudGate gateways offer proven superior indoor performance and are ideal for Smart Building and Smart Energy & Metering 

LoRaWAN® is a widely used wireless protocol that allows battery-operated devices to communicate with IoT applications via long-range, wireless connections, allowing longer battery life, thus lowering the cost of device ownership. LoRaWAN® is especially useful in large-scale deployments because of its availability, cost, and reach, due to its use of unlicensed spectrum, the availability of standardized, low-cost modules with long battery life.  

ThingPark Enterprise is a LoRaWAN IoT connectivity management platform that helps customers build network infrastructure by managing LoRaWAN gateways, add new LoRaWAN devices, monitor network operations, and control the flow of data to application servers. ThingPark Enterprise is specifically designed for enterprises: it’s simple, scalable, and easy to operate, and offers a unique low-power IoT communication infrastructure to enable an infinite number of industrial use cases. 

Option’s CloudGate gateways are fully integrated with ThingPark Enterprise and are available in Actility’s gateway portfolio on Actility’s IoT marketplace, ThingPark Market 

Option’s CloudGate gateways are the world’s leading smart-edge gateways and feature centralized remote update and configuration management, state-of-the-art authentication mechanism, centralized channel-plan management, with no dependency on local time keeping. Now also available for the LoRaWAN environment.
