Refining the process to connect, collect, analyze, and act on plant data for immediate ROI gains

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is bringing the refinery of the future within reach, today.

By infusing our proven M2M wireless radios with new edge computing power, FreeWaves offers petrochemical plants a practical, rapidly implemented solution move from reactive to proactive refinery management for transformative gains.

Make Your Plant Operations More Intelligent by Moving Compute Power to the Edge

Petrochemical operators that embrace IIoT have the opportunity to significantly improve production yield while lowering costs, equipment failures, and most importantly, risks to worker safety. FreeWave’s IQ-infused ruggedized connectivity and edge computing platform helps plants capitalize on IIoT gains, fast.


Made to operate safely in hazardous locations, our C1D2-certified products provide robust M2M wireless as well as a hardened home to run edge applications. By moving data processing to the edge, you can free up bandwidth within your existing network to access more data than ever before – gaining the real-time, actionable insights needed to make a true step change in operational efficiency and production output.
