Wirnet iStation

  • The “Wirnet iStation” is the evolution of the Wirnet Station. It is the ideal gateway to support your smart city, smart industry or any other smart project, combining simplicity of installation, unique superior coverage and operational excellence.


    The “Wirnet iStation” is a LoRaWAN gateway that specifically meets the tandard requirements of public operators, MVNOs, cable operators, private businesses or public authorities willing to boost their IoT businesses and to deploy evolutive and reliable networks, connect high volumes of end-devices, and manage millions of bidirectional messages every day.

    This long-range and low-power gateway comes with exclusive features for its remote monitoring, advanced radio network configuration and backhauling management with Kerlink’s Wanesy Management Center (WMC): it becomes very easy to operate LoRaWAN network even for non-telecom users.

    The Wirnet iStation is also compatible with the Wanesy Small Private Network (Wanesy SPN2) solution to deploy standalone and self-operating LoRaWAN private network.

    Its ruggedized and streamlined design brings together the best of the Wirnet Station and the optimizations of the i-series LoRaWAN gateways (Wirnet iFemtoCell, iFemtoCell-evolution and iBTS), using the same Software for easier and cheaper integration.

    The Wirnet iStation grants high availability and performance levels that enable flexible and scalable deployments across many industries. 

    It offers:

    • 4G Worldwide module with 3G/2G fallback and Ethernet (RJ45) for backhaul connectivity,
    • Carrier grade casing (IP67) for industrial use,
    • 8ch RX (125 kHz, multi Spreading Factor) + 1ch RX (250KHz or 500kHz, mono Spreading Factor) + 1ch RX (FSK) to get 10ch RX + 1ch TX,
    • Mounting kit allowing simple and quick installation without opening the casing,
    • Built-in high-rejection filters for co-localization with other radio devices and enabling strong interference resistance for better data transmission and permanent high availability.
    • Powered by:
    • PoE injector (15W or 30W),
    • +48VDC or DC -48VDC over RJ45 (isolated power),
    • Highly secured device relying on software and hardware architecture such as Prove & Run SecureBoot and SecureStorage,
    • Convenient and straightforward configuration, management, monitoring, control and update via Kerlink Wanesy Management Center,
    • Full support of Wanesy SPN2 for Small Private Network, embedding a LoRa Network Server on the Gateway (option),


  • High performance, reliability & robustness
    • Carrier grade design with excellent heat dissipation
    • Semtech Reference Design v1.5 components.


    Security HM and SW architectures
    • SecureBoot (Signed firmware),
