By Raju Shanbhag November 07, 2012

FreeWave Technologies has won M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award from TMC and Crossfire Media.

The FreeWave MM2 radio has been created to offer the performance, dependability and quality its users have come to know and expect in its products, in a MM2 “Mega-Mini” form factor for applications where space is at a premium. 

Suited for OEM applications, the company’s OEM product, the FreeWave radio, has all of the functionality of the larger footprint FGR Series of radios.

FreeWave’s MM2 wireless data radio is among the highest performing and smallest form factor radios on the market today, reflecting a landmark in performance. With the ability to work as master, slave, repeater or slave/repeater radio, the 1.4-inch MM2 x 2.0-inch weighs in at 14 grams and is highly versatile.

The MM2 is an OEM solution from FreeWave, and according to the company, some of the most mission-critical applications for government and defense customers rely on this solution.

This includes the command and control of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

“FreeWave is privileged to receive the M2M Evolution Product of the Year Award for our small and compact MM2 wireless data radio," said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave Technologies. "Wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) communication solutions are at the forefront of industrial networking and our MM2 radio signifies one of the many innovations taking place in the M2M marketplace.”

In 2011, the company announced that it would be showcasing at the AWEA 2011, to demonstrate its new wireless data radios and service products created for the wind energy industry. The exhibit will also consist of the company’s efforts with its partner, Turningpoint Wind, to provide a wholesome wind condition monitoring solution for wind farm operators around the world.
