Our Technology

Evolved for IIoT and ready to transform your operations, today.

Edge operations are ripe with opportunities for greater efficiency and optimization—but you need the data and visibility to find them.

Now with FreeWave’s platform, you can have it all.


FreeWave has combined our proven long-range industrial wireless radios with edge computing capabilities, transforming the extreme edge of your operation into a connected part of your enterprise.

We’ve taken our rugged OT products, designed for low-power operation across wide temperature ranges, and infused them with IQ intelligence.

FreeWave’s IQ Application Environment is an open source development platform to deploy and run applications in any Linux-compatible language. With IQ onboard, you can easily and reliably bring intelligence to the edge, where remote operations take place.

Why Now?

FreeWave has been connecting remote industrial operations for 27 years, but the proliferation of sensors and devices is driving new demands for compute power at the edge as well. We saw the opportunities facing our customers and evolved our platform so that they can:

Address Data-Intensive Realities of IIoT

Distribute processing to occur at the source, where the remote asset operates.

  • Decrease network latency
  • Optimize bandwidth


Create Data Transparency

Enable anytime, anywhere access of field data by any stakeholders that need it.

  • Collect high-fidelity data for new insights
  • Eliminate silos with cloud-based access


Foster Interoperability

Connect disparate devices using open, secure connectivity options such as MQTT.

  • Enrich existing infrastructure
  • Connect to cloud for enriched insights


Enable New Business Models

Combine real-time operational data (OT) with longer-term insights (IT) to power:

    • Predictive and preventative analytics
    • Transformative process optimization


Your Intelligent Edge is closer than you think.

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