Version 3.14 features LR-FHSS modulation. The Long Range - Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum increases network capacity and interference resistance, allowing for expanded deployment options throughout the world. With its expanded frequency range, larger payloads at high power and low data rates, LR-FHSS enables LoRaWAN network satellite connectivity and deeper indoor coverage. See the RP2-1.0.2 LoRaWAN® Regional Parameters, published by the LoRa Alliance to learn more about LR-FHSS.
Azure IoT Hub integration
Benefit from Azure IoT Hub features without writing your own bridge on The Things Stack version 3.14. The integration allows you to connect already existing LoRaWAN devices and start sending data without requiring any changes to the end devices themselves. Use your Azure infrastructure via Azure Event Grid, Azure Event Hub, or Azure Service Bus to process the traffic.
The Things Stack v3.14 supports the following Azure IoT Hub features:
Device Twin integration
Device Twin integration in v3.14 leverages capabilities of Device Repository, automatically assigning Azure IoT Hub Device Twin to end devices. This enables easy device status reporting and command scheduling, allowing interaction between user and device at a high-quality level. Learn how Device Twin enhances Azure IoT Hub integration
