I’m evaluating the SenseCAP M2 4G for a large scale commercial project that will read sensors and push the data to a private LoRaWAN portal on AWS through a cellular connection. I was able to setup the gateway and a single S102 to push one reading every four hours. The data is being delivered to the backend, so issue there. I assumed this setup would be consuming kilobytes of data per day. Instead it’s using over 10MB of 4G data per day! I don’t think I can make the numbers work if I need a 2 gigabyte data plan for each gateway.
Is this normal operation or is there a settings I’m missing? I’ve attached a plot of the wwan0(lte) traffic. No sensor data was sent during this period, yet there is a lot of traffic.
