FreeWave Radios Use FHSS to Extend Wireless Data Links to Remote Areas Without WI-FI
If you are new to the Internet of Things, M2M or even Industry 4.0, chances are you’ve never heard of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology. Although it sounds like something Geordi would say to Captain Picard on the bridge of the Enterprise, it is actually a proven and cyber-secure data transmission technology that has been around for decades.
What is Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum Technology (FHSS)?
A wireless technology that spreads its signal over rapidly hopping frequencies. It transmits much longer distances than Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LoRa or ZigBee.
It was invented for the security of the Free World during World War II by actress Hedy Lamar to prevent the Germans from jamming US radio signals.

Industries use FHSS technology for mission-critical wireless communication in remote areas without Wi-Fi coverage.
FHSS securely links wireless devices and smart sensors at long ranges. – In 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz, it’s a long range alternative to Bluetooth, ZigBee and LoRa.
In addition to the inherent cybersecurity offered by FHSS, FreeWave radios utilize advanced encryption protocols to insure additional layers of cybersecurity.
