RAKwireless has introduced the WisGate Soho Pro RAK7267, the latest addition to its LoRaWAN gateway lineup. Designed for both indoor and outdoor deployments, this compact and cost-effective device is ideal for smart agriculture, smart cities, industrial IoT, and remote monitoring solutions, combining essential features of RAK gateways in a robust enclosure.

The WisGate Soho Pro RAK7267 features the Semtech SX1303 for LoRa with 8 channels, providing a RX sensitivity of -139 dBm and a TX power of 27 dBm. It includes an internal, highly efficient 2.5 dBi LoRa antenna. The device supports Cat-1 LTE connectivity with different modules for various regions: EG915U-EU for EMEA/Brazil/Australia/NZ, EG915U-LA for LATAM, and EG915Q-NA for North America.

This gateway features built-in antennas for LoRa, LTE, Wi-Fi, and GPS, which simplifies waterproofing and installation while reducing costs. It supports RAK solar battery kits, requiring only a single power cable that can connect to either an external solar or DC power supply, enhancing installation flexibility for remote and off-grid applications.

With Cat-1 LTE connectivity, the WisGate Soho Pro optimizes gateway costs while maintaining performance. Though it lacks Ethernet and PoE, it is well-suited for Small Office/Home Office (SoHo) environments where simple and efficient installation is important.
