'World's Longest-Range Wi-Fi HaLow Solution' Demonstrated by IoT Innovators at Morse Micro


After establishing its latest strategic partnership with Synergy Associates (plus last year, with Quectel) and also after unveiling a slew of new customer ecosystem innovations with new Wi-Fi HaLow capability demos, there’s further Wi-Fi HaLow-related news that dropped just earlier today from IoT connectivity and interoperability solutions provider Morse Micro.

This morning, Morse Micro officially announced the success of what it has called “the world’s first live demonstration of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow technology extending three kilometers” (i.e. just shy of two miles).

According to research from the Wi-Fi Alliance, Wi-Fi HaLow’s range is already longer than plenty of IoT alternatives, especially when you factor in the distance with how robust the connections can truly be (through what you’d think would be problematic barriers, and even in incredibly challenging environments). However, previous range data for Wi-Fi HaLow has hovered in the ballpark of 1 kilometer (if not a smidge more).

That right there is what makes this Morse Micro news as significant as it is.

The Morse Micro team staged this record-setting field test of a long-range video call in San Francisco’s Ocean Beach neighborhood to showcase the ability of sub-GHz Wi-Fi HaLow signals to reach long distances in challenging real-world conditions. The protocol’s unprecedented 3-kilometer range is enabled by Morse Micro’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow system-on-chip (SoC) solution, which (as evidenced) offers powerful wireless capabilities for future IoT applications.

“Our successful demo of Wi-Fi HaLow video call across three kilometers in a difficult, real-world urban environment is a major milestone for Wi-Fi connectivity, showcasing the wireless protocol’s incredible reach,” said Michael De Nil, co-founder and CEO of Morse Micro. “Wi-Fi HaLow is a transformative technology that shatters the boundaries of today’s wireless connectivity. With its unparalleled range, exceptional low power consumption and superior throughput, Wi-Fi HaLow stands as the frontrunner in the IoT landscape. This is the future wireless connectivity, and it’s here today powered by Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow technology.”
