FreeWave Technologies launches sensor-2-server strategy

FreeWave Technologies has unveiled its first in a series of industry-changing Sensor-2-Serverâ„¢ (S2Sâ„¢) solutions with the introduction of the WaveProâ„¢ WP201â„¢ shorthaul (between 1-5 miles) and Wi-Fi hotspot platform, the company said.

The WP201 delivers secure collection, control and transport of all Voice, Video, Data and Sensor (VVDSâ„¢) information and is a critical component of FreeWave´s Sensor-2-Serverâ„¢ communications solution.

This cost effective, high-speed rugged communication platform is specifically designed for outdoor industrial locations and has proven reliability in extreme environmental conditions. It´s an ideal field area network solution for oil and gas, utilities, mining, power plants, municipalities, disaster recovery or any other type of industrial applications.

FreeWave´s S2S access layer strategy focuses on delivering the best-in-class access layer platforms that allow IoT data and information to be analyzed, acted upon and transmitted securely from anywhere in the industrial IoT network.

S2S is centered on four critical pillars of IoT networking and communication success: data collection, protection, transport and control. The WP201 was developed to enable the high-speed transport of data in remote locations. By incorporating dual-band, concurrently operational radios (2.4GHz and 5GHz) into an IP67 enclosure, the WP201 brings industrial-grade communications to the harshest of environments without fail.

WavePro WP201 leverages multiple networking protocols and services designed to meet the needs of enterprise-scale communications across a wide range of critical infrastructure industries. Static routing, dynamic routing and multiple VLANs, among other services, allow for streamlined configuration and integration in remote settings where traditional SCADA networks will not suffice. FreeWave sees WP201 as a truly global solution, homologating in a number of countries beyond the USA including Canada, LATAM, the Middle East, the Far East and Europe.

FreeWave Technologies provides wireless Machine to Machine (M2M) solutions that deliver reliable access to data for leading companies in the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) markets.
