Wi-Fi HaLow: A Promising Connectivity Technology for Large-Scale Industrial IoT Deployments

Imec researchers have evaluated Wi-Fi HaLow’s capability to support mission-critical industrial wireless sensor & actuator (IWSAN) applications


The deployment of industrial IoT (IIoT) networks is a complex exercise, the catch being that one-size-fits-all IIoT connectivity technology doesn’t exist. 

In a recent paper, researchers evaluated several wireless connectivity options to support the deployment of mission-critical Industrial Wireless Sensor and Actuator (IWSAN) applications. 

A particularly interesting single-hop alternative appears to be the Wi-Fi HaLow flavor.
