Hey Brains Trust.
Been looking into getting 4G connected to my Raspberry PI. General idea of making a mobile TTN Gateway. I can see four different ways to skin this cat.
- Expansion hat
- Tethered mobile phone (USB or iPhone wifi hotspot?)
- USB Dongle
- Ethernet (for a 3B+) connection to a 4G router
Anyone had some experience or thoughts/recommendations?
Graham created a mobile TTN Gateway for a recent hackathon here in Newcastle (we came second place). That project gave birth to our uGateway. We used a USB dongle to provide internet to the Gateway and it worked great! Some dongles don’t work directly with a Pi though, so do your research before you buy. Tethering a phone is by far the simplest solution.
