Industry’s First 802.11ah Wi-Fi Solution for IoT Devices

Powered by NRC7292 System-on-Chip from Newracom, SX-NEWAH is industry’s first IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi module that operates in the Sub 1GHz license-exempt band. It provides a much greater range over 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies and a much higher data rate than propriety Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox. 

This unique solution enables streamlined data transfer interoperability with existing Wi-Fi networks while meeting up to 1 Km long range data transfer with low power consumption requirements.

Securely Connect Smart Devices over Long Distances using Minimal Power

The self-contained IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi networking capabilities with fully integrated radio transceiver of NRC7292 offers the ideal solution to add Wi-Fi connectivity to IoT products. It minimizes the PCB size, requires minimal external circuitries, and enables fast time-to-market.

Operating in the Sub 1GHz license-exempt band, it offers a much greater range over 2.4GHz and 5GHz technologies. 1/2/4MHz channel widths with optional short guard interval (SGI) yield 150 Kbps to 15 Mbps PHY throughput which can support low-rate sensor to high-rate applications. The protocol’s power-saving mechanisms greatly reduces power consumption and hence increase battery life

Improved Range: 

Long range (up to 1 km) connectivity (in-outdoor Wi-Fi). It offers at least a 10 dB advantage over 2.4 GHz.

Low Power Consumption

Low power consumption for a multi-year battery operation. Whole home sensor coverage with 4dBm output power & no external power amplifier. Supports enhanced power save MAC modes.

Rich Data Rates

Moderate data rates (up to 15 Mbps) with enough throughput to support TCP/IP, Internet discovery protocols and diverse applications such as voice, low/medium resolution video.


Can support large number of connected devices per access point, no need for repeaters and gateways. Supports over 1000 nodes.

IP Connectivity

It is the same as Wi-Fi. You can easily integrate SX-NEWAH in an existing IP network.

Robust Wi-Fi Security

Supports latest generation Wi-Fi® security - WPA3™.

Outdoor Coverage

Support for larger delay spreads. Robust connections with superior penetration through walls and other industrial environments.

Wi-Fi Ecosystem

WFA certified interoperability and user experience.
