I am using  devices/nodes to gather data (temperature, presure etc). in a Camper. These use Lorawan to transmit to a Gateway which sends the data by wifi to the cloud.(I use The Internet of Things.). At the moment I have a  Rut 955 with LTE which I use as accespoint for this gateway.

I wonder if I can skip the seperate Gateway? . So  can the RUT955 be implemented as gateway for the The Things Network? Is a specific Pakkage for the Rut 955 needed to do so?
RUT955 doesn't have the hardware to act as a LoRaWAN gateway. It doesn't have LoRaWAN radios integrated.

There are products from other vendors that integrate LoRaWAN, WiFi, LTE and a couple of Ethernet ports into a single device that can function as a LoRaWAN gateway for The Things Network. One example is the Dragino LG308 with optional LTE module.

Unfortunately, you cannot skip your separate gateway because at this moment our RUT955 (or other products) does not support LoraWan. I suppose your device/nodes only capable to send data using LoraWan. Also, our RUT955 firmware is OpenWRT based and you would need to check if there is a package available of that service that you are using as a Cloud.
