SMART RADIO PLATFORM – 2400 – 2482 MHZ – DATASHEET

Smart Radio Platform

Smart Radio provides resilient, low latency, long-range, high-throughput links to implement industrial-grade private wireless mobile mesh Networks.

2.4 GHz WiFi Band

The 2.4 GHz band is license free in most of the world. It can be used for any purpose. In the USA, Canada, Central and Latin Americas, modems are permitted to transmit up to 4W of EIRP (30 dBm radio + 6 dBi antenna) to achieve several kilometer long links for IIoT applications like drones and ground robots.
