RAK7258 Review


The RAK7258 XXX-Link is an "indoor" wireless LoRA gateway from RAK Wireless.

I learned about it from this article on the CNX-Software site. I ordered one from AliExpress to review and evaluate.

I work with The Things Network Ithaca, and The Things Network NYC and have put much work into remote configuration and management of the Multitech Conduit gateways we use. I'm always on the lookout for an affordable alternative.
