The presentation “Unveiling Wi-Fi HaLow (802.11ah): Extended Range Wireless for the Masses” sheds light on the practical application of Wi-Fi HaLow, the new IEEE standard for sub-1GHz Wi-Fi. This technology offers extended range and improved obstacle penetration compared to traditional Wi-Fi, making it a potential game-changer for critical communications. This presentation explores the feasibility of adopting HaLow mesh networks alongside a range of existing and emerging to deliver last mile connectivity everywhere it is needed. Emphasising its relevance to critical communications, the presentation objectively examines Wi-Fi HaLow’s benefits and limitations, providing a factual understanding of its capabilities in the context of broader connectivity requirements.
