Managing an Application Profile - LoRaWAN

Introduction

Application profiles allow customers to group several client devices under a specific profile. Customers can use the application profiles in their web applications to display data and connectivity information regarding a single or group of IoT devices registered under a specific application. Every client device can only be registered under a single application profile.

Streams for an Application Profile

Haxiot X-ON provides different methods of transporting data to web applications. Streams provide a way to view and connect to data from client devices deployed in the field. Clients can create different types of streams for their web applications.

Creating a Stream

View Available Streams

Application profiles may have more than one stream available. To view a list of all available streams,

  1. From the Application profile page, select the 'Stream' tab towards the top
    • A list of available streams will be displayed
    • Note: Level 3 streams represent application-level streams. This means that when viewing a Lvl 3 stream, uplink and downlink packets will be viewable from these streams that have been registered
