The HDP-100 and HDP-200 systems support the IEEE 802.11ah (Wi-Fi HaLow) standard and are offered as providing a complete hardware and software development environment in a small-form factor for use across multiple industry segments including agriculture, construction, logistics, retail, security, smart home, and transportation.
"Wi-Fi HaLow enables an unprecedented solution for the wide-spread deployment of large-scale IoT solutions, as it meets the critical market needs for distance, speed, power and security," says Michael McNamara, CEO and co-founder of Adapt. "Utilizing license-free spectrum and the potential for multi-year battery operation, it will enable a whole new class of applications and business models."
Wi-Fi HaLow operates in the sub-gigahertz, license-free frequencies of the ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) bands, enabling a longer range of more than 1 km while using less power than existing Wi-Fi technologies, including operation on a coin cell battery. Additional benefits of the 802.11ah standard, says the company, include better penetration through buildings, support for up to 8191 stations (STA) per Access Point (AP), and support for WPA3 for authentication and encryption.
