Wi-Fi HaLow’s range makes it ideal for large industrial sites and fields

Wi-Fi HaLow enhances range and penetration while fortifying security and power efficiency, making it a cornerstone technology for IoT use cases. It delivers the familiar benefits of the Wi-Fi standard, such as easy integration, native IP support, the latest Wi-Fi security measures such as WPA3, and extensive ecosystem support. Additionally, there is no need for proprietary hubs and gateways since HaLow is a standard.

The choice of lower frequencies offers a compelling mix of extended range and robust penetration through physical obstacles. Moreover, the low-power aspect of the technology enables HaLow devices to be powered by coin-sized cell batteries for months and, in some cases, years.

Capable of reaching up to 1km, HaLow outperforms conventional Wi-Fi in coverage, making it ideal for sprawling industrial sites, agricultural fields, smart cities, buildings and offices. This extended range doesn’t just mean fewer access points need to be deployed — it translates into reduced infrastructure costs and complexity.

Wi-Fi HaLow is designed to accommodate a vast number of devices – up to 8,191 devices for a single access point within a network – and therefore addresses the device density challenge posed by the ever-growing IoT ecosystem. This white paper explains the capabilities of Wi-Fi HaLow, how it can be integrated into IoT solutions, and how its performance can be optimized over distances up to 1km. The paper concludes with typical applications and the hardware required, such as the FGH100M module, to support them.
