Activating Devices on Cloud Hosted

The Things Industries Join Server is a LoRaWAN Join Server. Learn how to activate devices on The Things Industries Cloud Hosted.

Command-line interface only

The instructions below use the command-line interface (CLI).

Prerequisites

  1. Command-line interface (CLI) configuration file with Cloud Hosted cluster. See The Things Industries Join Server
  2. Devices registered in The Things Industries Join Server. You can achieve this in two ways:
    1. Register devices with root keys. See registering devices on The Things Industries Join Server
    2. Claim secure elements. See Claim ATECC608A-TNGLORA secure elements

Login with CLI

Use the command-line interface (CLI) configuration file with Cloud Hosted cluster.

$ ttn-lw-cli login

Register

When registering the devices on a Network Server and Application Server, you need the following information:

  1. The NetID of The Things Network: 000013

  2. LoRaWAN version (i.e. 1.0.2)

  3. LoRaWAN Regional Parameters version (i.e. 1.0.2-b)

  4. Frequency plan (i.e. EU_863_870 or US_902_928)

    Hint: List the supported LoRaWAN versions, regional parameters versions, frequency plans and other options with:

    $ ttn-lw-cli end-devices list-frequency-plans
    $ ttn-lw-cli end-devices set --help
    

To register the device in application test-app with device ID eui-0004a310001ff9e0:

$ ttn-lw-cli end-devices set test-app eui-0004a310001ff9e0 \
  --net-id 000013 \
  --lorawan-version 1.0.2 \
  --lorawan-phy-version 1.0.2-b \
  --frequency-plan-id EU_863_870 \
  --supports-join \
  --touch
