To get started with AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN, please read the following guide: LORIX One - Getting Started Guide for AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN - v1.1.pdf

You can connect your LORIX OS gateways to AWS IoT Core in just a few simple steps with the Basic Station.

This will be done a the following steps:

  1. Create an AWS IoT Core account
  2. Register the gateways in AWS IoT Core
  3. Configure the gateway

Create an AWS IoT Core account

Connect to and create a new account, or use your existing one.

Register the gateways in AWS IoT Core

For this step, please refer to the AWS IoT Core documentation. The Developer Guide contains all the needed information in the AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN section.

Once you read the introduction, please move to the Onboard your gateways to AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN section. We recommend using the Console to onboard the gateway.

While onboarding your gateway you will need the Gateway UID. Please refer to the Gateway UID page to find the UID.

As you configure the gateway during the onboarding process, create a Gateway certificate and download both Gateway certificate file and Private key file.

Configure and connect the gateway

Connect to the Manager GUI and go to the LoRa > Forwarder page.

Select the LoRa Basic Station as the active forwarder.

Configure the Basic Station

In the Configuration section, enable the Configuration and Update Server part.


Take the CUPS endpoint provided during the onboarding process, or copy it from the Gateway details page.

  • Remove the protocol and the port and copy it to the Address field.
  • Copy the port to the Port field

Provided endpoint address :

Manager GUI configuration:

Secure TLS connection

Enable the Secure TLS connection option and select Use local root certificates.

By using the local root certificates, you don't have to provide the LNS certificate to authenticate it as it will use the public key infrastructure instead. LORIX OS will automatically manage the root certificates.

Client authentication

Enable the Client authentication option and select Use certificate and key.

Use the Gateway certificate files downloaded during the onboarding process:

  • Set the *.cert.pem file as the Client certificate.
  • Set the *.private.key file as the Client certificate key.

The Gateway certificate file cannot be downloaded after the onboarding process for security reasons. If you did not download the file, you can create a new one by using the Attach CUPS certificate button on the Gateway details page.

Verify and save

Your configuration should like similar to this:

Verify the information and press the save button.

Connect the gateway

Press the Start button to enable the Basic Station. Check the AWS console and the LoRa > Status page of the Manager GUI for connectivity status.

If connection fails, please check the Basic Station logs and the Basic Station Troubleshooting page to find out the issue.
