On Demand Webinar: How 802.11ah (Wi-Fi HaLow) Tech is Revolutionizing IoT Connectivity
Last month, Silex held a webinar with our partner Newracom to discuss the benefits of 802.11ah Wi-Fi Halow, and why we believe this LPWAN technology is the future of IoT device connectivity. Additionally, we introduced the Silex's SX-NEWAH, the industry's first 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow IoT module, powered by Newracom's NRC7292 System-on-Chip.
Since 802.11ah is a new technology, this webinar elaborated on how this technology came into existence, and what it brings to the 802.11 standard, which includes is a broad range of features, specifically:
- Improved Range
- Lower Power Consumption
- Extended Data Rates
- IP Connectivity
- Robust Wi-Fi Security
- Outdoor Coverage
- Wi-Fi Ecosystem
When compared to other IoT wireless technologies, 802.11ah's ability to adapt and cover the broad range of above features and meet the ideal technical requirements needed to support IoT connectivity makes it the winning solution.
Unlike competing technologies, 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow's ability to adapt and cover a broad range of capabilities also means it has the potential to be used in almost any technical application. In addition to introducing our 802.11ah module, SX-NEWAH, our webinar presentation concluded with an overview of the specific user applications Silex envisions 802.11ah Wi-Fi being best suited for across the below industries:
- Smart Homes
- Mining, Construction, and Agriculture
- Medical and Healthcare
What specific applications do you think 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow Technology is best suited for, and why? Watch the webinar and share your ideas with us in the comments section below.
