FreeWave’s new Fusion Bridge dual-radio gateway delivers seamless Wi-Fi connectivity to remote 900 MHz networks
BOULDER (May 3rd, 2021) – Data is everywhere, but Wi-Fi is not. If remote operations lack on-site connectivity to gather and share real-time, business critical data, efficiency suffers. Today, Boulder-based FreeWave Technologies introduced a reliable way to connect remote assets and unlock siloed operational data: Fusion Bridge. The dual-radio bridge adds WiFi access point connectivity to remote 900 MHz networks. A plug and play option for existing ZumLink Networks, it makes it easy for enterprises to connect multiple devices and sensors in the field, access real-time data, drive new operational efficiencies and improve asset management.
“Fusion Bridge solves a real problem for enterprises that have remote assets generating critical data in the field and requires staff to physically monitor or collect it directly,” said FreeWave CEO Kirk Byles. “Manual data collection is time-consuming, can introduce human error and is highly inefficient. But it also delays decision making, which not only adds costs, but also minimizes the ability for companies to proactively mitigate business risk. Fusion Bridge is another example of how we are working to help customers address real problems and add capability to existing network communications without substantial investments.”
Fusion Bridge is over-the-air compatible with ZumLink networks and accommodates any WiFi device, including tablets, sensors, smartphones and security cameras. It offers an easy, browser-based configuration that is OEM-ready and features a fully customizable interface. If you are looking for a platform to deliver remote security intelligence applications including human or vehicle presence alerting, activity monitoring and remote access protection outside of network range, look no further than Fusion Bridge.
