A wireless standard that utilizes license-exempt, sub-1 GHz bands to provide long range Wi-Fi networks.
It utilizes sub 1 GHz license-exempt bands to provide extended range Wi-Fi networks, compared to conventional Wi-Fi networks operating in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also benefits from lower energy consumption, allowing the creation of large groups of stations or sensors that cooperate to share the signal, supporting the concept of the Internet of Things (IoT). The protocol is intended to be competitive with Bluetooth with its low power consumption, but with a wider coverage range.
