On booth #3142 FreeWave Technologies, a leader in industrial, secure Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) wireless networking solutions, is exhibiting and offering demonstrations of its latest command-and-control (C2) solutions for unmanned systems.


As military spending budgets increase, along with the adoption of unmanned systems for air, land and water, manufacturers and operators will need rugged, reliable and secure C2 solutions with high-speed data transmission. At their booth, the company is giving attendees a first-hand look at FreeWave’s solutions, offered in a small form factor ideal for drones and robotics that have logged more than 2.5 million flight hours without a single link failure.

“For over two decades, our government and defense and commercial unmanned systems customers have depended on FreeWave radios for reliable and secure communication links,” Scott Allen, CMO at FreeWave Technologies, said. “Our track record of success in the most rugged and challenging environments speak to the quality and durability of our products. Our OEM business looks incredibly strong for 2017 and beyond as the commercial marketplace continues to expand. We see new applications and use cases surfacing across public safety and border patrol to irrigation and cinematography. Our partners can continue to put their trust in our solutions for reliable command-and-control.”

FreeWave features serial radio modules for OEM and Embedded wireless applications. The ZumLink Z9-C and Z9-T are ideally suited for unmanned systems and other industrial machines and solutions that require highly reliable, high-speed data communications and networking.

Furthermore, 900 MHz MM2 is FreeWave’s leading OEM product, designed to provide the performance, reliability, and quality in a form factor for applications where space is at a premium. The MM2 family has all of the functionality of our larger footprint FGR2 Series of radios.

In addition, the 2.4 GHz GXM radio is designed to provide OEMs with the performance, reliability and quality they have come to know and expect in FreeWave products in a globally available spectrum. The 1.4x2” form factor of the GXM is a drop-in replacement for the MM2, enabling OEMs to leverage their existing designs for international markets where 900MHz spectrum is unavailable and is ideally suited for applications where space is a premium.

FreeWave’s fast, flexible and easy-to-deploy solutions streamline connectivity over long distances to also create significant operational efficiencies for government, defence and UAV/drone contractors, agriculture equipment manufacturers, energy and smart grid networks, municipalities and more.
