The MatchX Matchbox is an OpenWRT / Lede base LoRa® gateway, which by default sends its data to the MatchX hosted network-server (which is based on the ChirpStack open-source LoRaWAN® Network Server Stack). By default it connects to the MatchX backend over a VPN connection.
To connect the gateway to your own environment:
Power on the gateway and follow the MatchX provided manual to setup the wifi connection (in case needed).
Create a MatchX account and register the gateway.
On the page with the gateway details is a button Global LoRa Config: [Edit Config]. click on this button and scroll down to the bottom where you find the
server_addresssetting. Change this to the IP or hostname on which your ChirpStack Gateway Bridge instance is listening for UDP packets.
Note: Running the ChirpStack Gateway Bridge on the gateway itself will probably
not work without re-compiling the kernel with FPU emulation. This has not been
tested. In order to get
root access, you need to contact the MatchX support
for getting the password.
