Smart Radio Family

The Smart Radio is a tiny, full-featured broadband MIMO radio and a mesh router. It has an Ethernet interface to allow easy integration into any system. With up to 1W of RF power and 2×2 MIMO technology, the Smart Radio can transmit large amounts of data (e.g. HD video) in real-time from over 20 km away. Doodle Labs’ Smart Radio has been designed to allow OEMs to rapidly develop new Industrial IoT applications.

The Smart Radio’s flexible frequency architecture can satisfy customers’ requirements in any market or country. The Smart Radios are available in many frequency bands up to 4 GHz and have been designed to be interchangeable, allowing customers to switch the operating bands by simply swapping the radio.

Key Features
