White Papers: Wi-Fi HaLow best IoT tech for range, battery life, & breadth of applicability

Newracom mentioned:

“The HaLow standard spans a huge number of possible IoT segments – including agriculture, home automation, transport, and more – specifically because of its range: Up to at least 1 kilometre of range at low data rates (the lowest is 150 kbps) has already been confirmed by vendor Newracom.”

“Thus far the case for Wi-Fi HaLow has mostly been driven by startups and smaller chipset vendors including Wi-Fi NOW Award winners Newracom, Australia-based Morse Micro, and Netherlands-based Methods2Business. And while the market potential for HaLow is still massive, the HaLow community is still looking for its tipping point for success.”

Other key points:

“Wi-Fi HaLow is by a wide margin more energy efficient than competitors Sigfox, LoRaWAN, and NB-IoT. For a 2,000 mAH battery the operating lifetime of a device could be as high as 13 years”

“A single Wi-Fi HaLow access point could cover a whopping 775 acres and provide Internet access for some 8,000 IoT devices”
