Gateworks is proud to announce the GW16146 802.11ah HaLow Mini-PCIe radio for industrial internet of things (IoT) applications. It uses the Silex SX-NEWAH module, which is based on the Newracom NRC7292 System-on-Chip. The GW16146 brings all the advantages of 802.11ah to the Gateworks rugged and industrial single board computers.
802.11ah, often called Wi-Fi HaLow, is a new standard that uses Sub-1GHz frequencies to provide longer range at a lower power consumption. It can support 1000’s of clients with WPA-3 security. By utilizing standard TCP/IP framework, no special code or SDKs are required. With everything being open source and unlicensed, no costly consortium memberships are required.
