Uplink - these are messages received from end devices.

NS is capable to optionally add the following additional parameters to the uplink messages:

  • radio - object that contain information about RF properties like RSSI, SNR and so on...
    You should use radio = 1 parameter during connection procedure in order to receive this data from NS.

    For example:

  • mac_commands - list of MAC commands that was received in this uplink message.
    Please use lora = 1 parameter in a query string in order to receive this information from NS.

    For example:


Another functionality of NS is ability to receive or discard duplicate messages.
In order to receive all message duplucates use duplicate=1 in query string.

For example:


Review this diagram for better understanding on how uplink message works:

On this diagram you can see how uplink message is delivered to AS:

  1. Device sends message to Gateway.

  2. Gateway process message and add some additional information to it (for example RF parameters) and sends to the NS.

  3. NS receives uplink message from gateway and process it (decrypt, deserialize, ...) and send it to the AS through Data API.

  4. AS receives a message with type=uplink

First example shows how to receive an uplink message without radio information.

Let's use WebSocket client called wscat.
To connect to the server and start to receive messages you should run this command (do not forget to use your own access_token):

wscat -c "wss://ns.eu.everynet.io/api/v1.0/data?types=uplink&access_token=89058167bcf482071da1a88036ca9aaf"

You should get something like this after your client is connected to Data API:

    "meta": {
        "network": "75697b95",
        "packet_hash": "889a72ab34a647f504ef37d598589431",
        "application": "70b3d54b17db0106",
        "device_addr": "36c365b4",
        "time": 1504806725.252493,
        "device": "faa73111a2aead2c",
        "packet_id": "bfa4be139911fe8ff80bc0afbf110fa3",
        "gateway": "7c95bd79864622a4"
    "params": {
        "rx_time": 1504806725.245682,
        "port": 55,
        "counter_up": 118,
        "payload": "MjRjZjA4YWQyZGE5NGZlZDlkNmRiY2VkOTMwYWMzZjM=",
        "encrypted_payload": "ehMceJ/3W3itJE8rwwvL3y0yu485QMHpLCa4km/TZYM="
    "type": "uplink"

Second example shows how to receive uplink message with RF details in each message.

Let's use wscat again, but you should add radio=1 to the query string:

wscat -c "wss://ns.eu.everynet.io/api/v1.0/data?types=uplink&access_token=89058167bcf482071da1a88036ca9aaf&radio=1"

Just after Data API connection is established you should start to receive messages like:

    "meta": {
        "network": "75697b95",
        "packet_hash": "79f664df2c2073af798fa87497305d8d",
        "application": "70b3d54b17db0106",
        "device_addr": "36c365b4",
        "time": 1504806731.256388,
        "device": "faa73111a2aead2c",
        "packet_id": "fdbb09021c4523d9f28bb815ca872c70",
        "gateway": "7c95bd79864622a4"
    "params": {
        "rx_time": 1504806731.249041,
        "port": 27,
        "radio": {
            "modulation": {
                "bandwidth": 125000,
                "type": 0,
                "spreading": 12,
                "coderate": "4/7"
            "hardware": {
                "status": 1,
                "chain": 0,
                "tmst": 514586002,
                "snr": 5.0,
                "rssi": -100.0,
                "channel": 0,
                "gps": {
                    "lat": 59.890445709228516,

            "datarate": 0,

        "counter_up": 120,
