The whole world is getting more and more connected. We are all used to a myriad of wireless technologies like GSM, CDMA, BlueTooth, Wifi, GPS etc.
Now a new application field is emerging: the Internet Of Things (IOT). This means that the amount of wireless devices is about to grow exponentially to connect our lamps, fridges, doorbells to applications on our phones and tablets.
We are at the dawn of a whole new era of wireless development with technologies like Zigbee and flavours, LoPan and others.
A short overview of popular wireless technologies and frequencies:
|Technology||Frequency band(s) (MHz)|
450, 700, 850, 900, 1800, 1900
|GPRS, LTE etc||450, 700, 850, 900, 1500, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2100, 2300, 2500, 2600, 3500|
|Wifi, Bluetooth||2400, 5500|
|Zigbee||700, 870, 910, 2400|
|GPS, Glonass, Galileo, BeiDou||1200, 1575|
|ISM||450, 780, 868, 915, 2400|
|WiMax||2300, 2500, 3300, 3500, 5800|
Low Power Networks (LoPan)
Long Range Networks (LoRa)
|450, 868, 902|
Networks are still evolving and new technologies are emerging. This overview gives you an idea of the most used technologies.
The MegiQ products cover the all of the above frequency ranges and allow you to measure and develop hardware for any of these technologies. Our products are generally independent of the communication system or protocol.
