Ondas Releases Scalable MC-IoT Platform for Critical Infrastructure

By Ken Briodagh February 28, 2019

According to a recent announcement, Ondas Networks, a developer of private licensed wireless data networks for mission-critical industrial markets, will release its enhanced FullMAX radio architecture for highly scalable Mission Critical IoT (MC-IoT) networks at the International Wireless Communications Expo.

The Ondas FullMAX software defined radio (SDR) platform, which is the basis for the new industrial IEEE 802.16s wireless standard, reportedly will now support both narrow and wide channels ranging from 12.5 kHz up to 10 MHz. The expanded capability for narrow channels is designed to provide critical infrastructure with the ability to introduce MC-IoT applications and edge computing capabilities over existing legacy unused or underutilized Land Mobile Radio (LMR) channels.

The enhanced platform also allows for future scalability as more frequencies become available and will enable the aggregation of non-adjacent channels for even greater throughput.

“Similar to voice networks, critical infrastructure has special challenges for IoT applications. There are distinct requirements for increased security, availability and reliability, and through the FullMAX platform, we are meeting these needs and enabling data communications for MC-IoT,” said Suresh Palliparambil, Chief Revenue Officer, Ondas Networks. “The upcoming IWCE 2019 show is an enormous opportunity for us to demonstrate the value of our FullMAX technology for mission-critical entities looking to incorporate MC-IoT and edge computing into their operations. We look forward to presenting our expanded capabilities at the show.”

The enhanced FullMAX architecture comes shortly after the launch of the Company’s new Ondas Labs, a partnership program and innovation lab for advanced edge computing and connectivity in mission-critical applications. Ondas Labs will offer vendor partners and their customers access to additional processing resources able to host new computing applications at the network’s edge using the FullMAX platform.


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
