Wi-Fi HaLow Targets Low-Power, Long-Range IoT Connectivity


In November 2021, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced its Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow certification program for 802.11ah Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Wi-Fi HaLow uses the sub-1 GHz band to provide long-range, low-power robust connectivity with the ability to support thousands of devices per Access Point (AP). The long-range connectivity the sub-1 GHz band supports, such as within the agriculture or logistics markets, delivers data over one kilometer of distance without the need for mesh or repeaters and uses multivendor interoperability, WPA3 security, easy setup, and seamless Internet Protocol (IP) network integration without interference from existing Wi-Fi networks. Some of the many applications—such as streaming video from security cameras in challenging environments that include walls and other barriers (such as garages, basements, attics, warehouses, factories, and large outdoor areas)—can be supported by Wi-Fi HaLow.
