We're iFroglab and we did a cool thing of LoRa,
Regarding to LoRa alliance has publish News and released such solution of IOT.
its good product can be extend for WiFI/BTLE using distance for such RF technical. (e.g can be extend to 2Km)
but,the LoRa gateway is quite expensive and can't be accepted.(around $1600-$2100)
therefore,we did a LoRa dongle that can be solved this problem if you want to design LoRa topology;
we have LoRa module that can connection with LoRa gateway(Raspberry Pi+LoRa dongle).
yes.,we can plug in a LoRa dongle on your raspberry PI that running our sample code then it will become to LoRa gateway(Low cost).
in fact,we start a "one Click project" in this year 2018 and wish we can approach Cloud application with iFroglab Dash board.
Many customer want to enable iOT application and they always stuck on Cloud service that quite hardly to connection with H.W.,
so..we create a LoRa app and it only "one Click button" that can update your Raw data<e.g. Sensor Data> to iFroglab Dash board.
it quite nice and easy to establish your data to Cloud..

We got many replied that appreciate this LoRa app, The iFroglab has real to solved many customer question for Cloud.
