SX-NEWAH: Industry’s First 802.11ah Wi-Fi Solution for IoT Devices

Powered by NRC7292 System-on-Chip from Newracom, SX-NEWAH is industry’s first IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi module that operates in the Sub 1GHz license-exempt band. It provides a much greater range over 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies and a much higher data rate than propriety Low-Power Wide-Area (LPWA) technologies such as LoRa and Sigfox. Unlike these proprietary technologies, the SX-NEWAH is built upon 802.11ah technology designed to operate in IEEE standards. This unique solution enables streamlined data transfer interoperability with existing Wi-Fi networks while meeting upto 1Km long range data transfer with low power consumption requirements.

SX-NEWAH opens up unlimited possibilities for various remote monitoring applications such as industrial sensors, elderly monitoring, security surveillance, building automation and agricultural IoT.
