SX-NEWAH – Silex´s first 802.11ah Wi-Fi Solution

The SX-NEWAH is the first industry´s IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi module that operates in the Sub 1 GHz license-exempt band. Powered by the NRC7292 SoC from Newracom it provides a greater range over 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies and also a higher data rate than Low-Power-Wide-Area (LPWA) such as LoRa and Sigfox. NRC7292’s self-contained IEEE 802.11ah Wi-Fi networking capabilities with fully integrated radio transceiver provide the ideal solution for adding Wi-Fi connectivity to IoT products. 1/2/4MHz channel widths with optional short guard interval (SGI) give a PHY rate of 150 Kbit/s to 15 Mbit/s, the sensors low-rate applications with a high rate can support. This unique solution enables optimized interoperability of data transfer with existing Wi-Fi networks and performs a data transfer with a range of up to 1 km with low power consumption.

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