What is Packet Broker?
First off, it’s a good idea to understand what Packet Broker is. Learn that and more in the What is Packet Broker section.
Start Using Packet Broker
There are two ways to use Packet Broker to route LoRaWAN traffic. Packet Broker is integrated in The Things Stack and can be used automatically if you are using The Things Stack. If you are using another network server, such as Chirpstack, you will need to install a command line client to configure and begin routing packets.
Option 1: Use Packet Broker with The Things Stack
Packet Broker is built in to The Things Stack, so if you’re using The Things Stack to route LoRaWAN traffic, you’re probably already connected to Packet Broker! See The Things Stack documentation for instructions to configure Packet Broker within The Things Stack Console.
Option 2: Install a command-line Packet Broker client
See the Installing Packet Broker Clients section for instructions.
