Gateway claiming is a mechanism that transfers gateways securely. This enables transfer of ownership between users as well as between tenants. This section provides guides for making gateways claimable and claiming them.
The LoRa Basics™ Station protocol simplifies management of large scale LoRaWAN® networks. LoRa Basics™ Station is the preferred way of connecting Gateways to The Things Stack.

The Semtech UDP Packet Forwarder is the original LoRaWAN® packet forwarder, connecting to servers through the Semtech UDP protocol. Many gateways include a pre-compiled version of the Semtech UDP Packet Forwarder, often adapted to the specific gateway.
Warning: The Semtech UDP Packet Forwarder has many security and scalability drawbacks, so if possible, use LoRa Basics™ Station to connect your gateway to The Things Stack.
