The Things Network is a global collaborative Internet of Things ecosystem that creates networks, devices and solutions using LoRaWAN.
The Things Network runs The Things Stack Community Edition, which is a crowdsourced, open and decentralized LoRaWAN network. This network is a great way to get started testing devices, applications, and integrations, and get familiar with LoRaWAN.
Login or create an account to get started with The Things Network and start using The Things Stack Console.
Once you have an account, get started by following instructions for adding Devices, Gateways, and Integrations.
For more information about The Things Network and LoRaWAN, see The Things Network Documentation
For commercial solutions, we strongly recommend using an SLA-backed network provided by The Things Industries. Learn more about the enterprise offerings of The Things Industries.
The Things Stack Community Edition (run by The Things Network) is a multi-cluster deployment. This means that while your account information is stored in a central location, you can connect your gateways to a closer cluster, and route all your IoT traffic in that cluster. This can significantly reduce latency because your traffic would not have to cross half the planet.
The Things Stack Community Edition currently has the following clusters:
||Australia 1||Sydney, Australia|
||North America 1||California, USA|
If you navigate to this link, you can find out which The Things Stack Community Edition clusters are recommended for your deployment based on the location of your devices and immediately log into its Console.
See the Addresses for details about cluster, Console, API endpoints and other The Things Stack Community Edition addresses.
