# Overview

# Introduction

The wireless sensors designed and manufactured by Radio Bridge provide full sensor to cloud solutions for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Radio Bridge LoRaWAN sensors can connect to a variety of LoRaWAN compliant network servers, located either on a local gateway or as a cloud-based network server. From there, the sensor messages can be sent to the Radio Bridge web-based console or a third-party application. This document provides instructions for connecting LoRaWAN sensors using several different methods. For more information on the web-based console, visit https://console.radiobridge.com (opens new window)

# Stand-Alone vs Network Provider

A network provider for LoRaWAN will set up LoRa base stations and charge for accessing their network much like a cell phone provider will charge to connect your phone to their network. In some cases, however, it may be desirable to set up a stand-alone gateway that does not use a network provider. Reasons for this may include lack of coverage in remote area or simply reducing the cost when there are many sensors in the field.

# AppEUI / JoinEUI

The LoRaWAN AppEUI, now known as the JoinEUI (they are sometimes used interchangeably), is consistent among Radio Bridge products and thus is not listed on the product labels. Earlier products use a generic, non-unique, JoinEUI, and newer products use a unique JoinEUI as described in the following table.
