Teledatics, a developer of IoT-enabled products and platforms, has unveiled an open source, open hardware Wi-Fi HaLow-enabled development platform.

Aimed at engineers, creators and experimenters theTeledatics TD-XPAH development platform looks to support long range IoT Wi-Fi networks at distances of 1 kilometre or more. The IEEE 802.11ah 'Halow' Wi-Fi protocol is supported by major industry players and is currently available in a variety of chip implementations from several vendors.

The platform is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11ah 'Halow' Wi-Fi standard, operating in the Sub 1GHz license-exempt band. It delivers ultra-low-power, long-range connectivity, penetration through obstacles, and reliable data throughput that other IoT technology options promise, but with the added benefit of native TCP/IP support, mesh networking, simpler network integration, and enhanced WPA3 security.

“The open nature of the Teledatics platform will bootstrap 802.11ah development,” said James Ewing, founder and CEO of Teledatics. “The product allows the creation of wide area wireless networks on an easy-to-use, open platform that will spur IoT development across a range of disciplines and industries."

The platform is being launched on the Crowd Supply website.
