With FreeWave as your partner, Industrial IoT is not a far-off vision but a near-term reality.

bringing your intelligent edge within reach

Edge operations are ripe with opportunities for greater efficiency and optimization – but you need the data visibility to find them, and the real-time control to act on them for rapid gains.

Now with FreeWave, you can have it all.


We’ve infused our proven long-range industrial wireless radios with edge computing capabilities to run IIoT applications at remote edge devices.

By distributing data capture and processing to the edge, you can optimize bandwidth and mitigate lags in decision making caused by latency – deriving more value from more data, more quickly, without overburdening your network or replacing your existing infrastructure.

See how FreeWave’s edge intelligent solutions transform the extreme edge of your operation into a connected part of your enterprise.

Why Edge Computing?

IIoT can help virtually any industrial enterprise edge out their competition by arming them with more robust and actionable data on their remote operations. The challenge is that traditional approaches of centralized data processing and network polling simply can’t support the breadth of data and real-time delivery speed IIoT demands.

  • Bandwidth-heavy centralized computing to…
  • A delay-fraught poll-response topology to…
  • Proprietary, disconnected systems to…
  • Low-latency distributed processing
  • Real-time report-by-exception publishing
  • An interoperable IIoT-ready infrastructure

You’ll also see the immediate ROI gains that can be achieved by adding FreeWave’s ruggedized ‘smart layer’ to your existing systems.
