Great I will check it out. Will it work with the STM32 Lora family? And how can I do the configuration

Should work with most lora stuff I used a pi with it though I know someone used a esp32 for it on the things network forum before

Lora stuff is pretty standard once you use the right frequency

Box is a bit hard to see but the lorawan hat is the board connected to the black wire

You shouldn't have any compatibility issues. Most important is selecting the right frequency for your region. If your gateway is just used as a "packet forwarder" for low volume traffic, any will work fine. If you need to embed your LoRaWAN Network Server on the gateway then you'll need a higher end product. Also, some gateways have better range performance and better high traffic performance, but if you're just doing some small system testing that won't be an issue.

Yep As long as you use the right frequency he gateway itself is pretty reliable
