World's First HaLow-Enabled Products for IoT Applications

NEWRACOM, a provider of IoT-enabled Wi-Fi SoCs, together with IoT solutions expert, AdvanWISE, has introduced the world’s first HaLow (IEEE 802.11ah-enabled) products for the IoT market. The strategic collaboration of the two companies to deploy HaLow products enables turn-key solutions for various IoT applications.

AdvanWISE has deployed a variety of HaLow products integrated with NRC7292, the world's first 802.11ah Wi-Fi SoC provided by NEWRACOM. AdvanWISE recently developed and introduced the world's first Tri-band Industrial Gateway, HaLow AP/ Station, HaLow Mini PCI-e Module to penetrate IoT markets.

HaLow has been developed for IoT markets, which includes the smart home and office, connected cars, digital healthcare, smart farms, and smart grid industries. Distinct from conventional Wi-Fi, HaLow products operate at sub 1 GHz bandwidth and promise long-range data transmission with low power consumption. Even though HaLow faces increased competition from other low-power and long-range connectivity technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT, and Wi-SUN, it boasts a higher data rate up to 15 Mbps and connects thousands of devices on a single access point.

Dr. Sok Kyu Lee, CEO and President of NEWRACOM believes HaLow's distinct and competitive functionality of long-range coverage with relatively higher data rate will give the IoT industry a great momentum to introduce new, improved and even never-imagined IoT services and related numberless devices.

NEWRACOM and AdvanWISE showcased their Halo products at MWC Barcelona 2019 in February and will again showcase at the upcoming Smart City Summit & Expo to be held from March 26-29 in Taiwan (Booth I-427).
