Rugged 900MHz wireless for embedded and OEM applications in critical industries

By Nick Flaherty

FreeWave Technologies has launched a new line of 90MHz wireless modules for long range connectivity in secure M2M and IoT applications.

The ZumLink Z9-PC ( radios are designed to function in rugged environments for a variety of applications across Industrial IoT (IIoT) markets, including precision agriculture, oil and gas, unmanned systems, smart cities and utilities. Future versions of the module will feature full programmability with third-party applications for IIoT projects.
"The Z9-PC is our most advanced embeddable radio to date," said Phil Linker, senior product manager at FreeWave Technologies. "Not only does it support the functionality of FreeWave's ZumLink 900 MHz Z9-PE radio, but will include the ZumIQ App Server with the ability to host third-party applications at the edge of IIoT networks. Companies in critical industries can utilize data and provide command and control like never before."

Over the past year, FreeWave has introduced the ZumLink 900 MHz Series of radios to include the Z9-P, Z9-PE, Z9-C, and Z9-T. The Z9-PC is the culmination of the 900 MHz radio series, as it provides versatility and flexibility, and, most importantly, provides programmability for industries in need of future-proof IIoT technology. The radios use  FreeWave's ZumBoost Network Acceleration Pack with techniques such as compression, packet aggregation, forward error correction, and a patent-pending Adaptive Spectrum Learning technology to ensure maximum throughput to meet the demands of today's wireless applications.

Additional features include five RF link rates from 115.2 kbps up to 4 Mbps, 128bit and 256bit AES counter mode encryption, multiple link rates, channel sizes and modulations, as well as frequency hopping and single channel operation.
