Node simulation


#1

Sniffing MQTT messages sent and received by my LoRa gateway I got something like this for a node with devEUI 0101010101180009:

I would be able to recreate the same flow of messages and being able to “build” the phyPayload in javascript. My goal is to simulate a large number of nodes in javascript and send the MQTT messages to the network server.

Do you thing this is a difficult task? I need to derive AppSKey, NwkSKey and then to use those to encrypt data, right?

Is this just for a stress test?

You have this application:

I think it was already tested on loraserver and the creator was around here
