BOULDER, Colo., May 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FreeWave Technologies, Inc. (www.freewave.com), a leader in industrial, secure Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) wireless networking solutions, today announced its ZumLink 900 Radio Series and Industrial IoT Programmable Radio (IPR) have been named bronze award winners by the American Business Awards and the IT World Awards, respectively. The ZumLink 900 series (http://www.freewave.com/products/zumlink-900-series/) is comprised of the Z9-PE, Z9-T and Z9-C – all of which provide extensive future-proof networking capabilities and are specifically designed to function in extreme, rugged environments. The IIoT Programmable Radio (http://www.freewave.com/products/zumlink-ipr-iiot-programmable-radio/) combines the same rugged functionality of the 900 series, along with the added capability of hosting third-party applications that can be deployed at the network's edge to facilitate secure smart data collection, transport and control. "Our ZumLink technology has been a driving factor behind our ongoing mission to bring intelligence to the network edge," said Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave Technologies. "We understand that there is a demand for rugged hardware that can perform the same next-gen data collection, transport and control capabilities of advanced, back-office IT operations. We are extremely excited for the future of not only our technology, but the ongoing transformation of Industrial IoT at-large."


Over the last 12 months, FreeWave has unveiled eight groundbreaking new products, including its ZumLink Series of next-generation wireless IoT radio technology. ZumLink offers faster throughput, lower power consumption and hosts third party intelligent edge applications for commercial, industrial and military markets.  ZumLink is a first of its kind intelligent App server radio.

"Our partners and customers are genuinely delighted with the products and the professional, courteous support they receive from the company." According to the Mount Washington Observatory's IT Manager, Peter Gagne, FreeWave's winning combination of proven products together with its world-class customer service set it apart. "For almost 13 years, FreeWave radios have been on-duty continuously, and I personally can attest to their durability and reliability in conditions that, frankly, radios shouldn't survive. These radios routinely are exposed to bitter cold and winds that far exceed the radios specifications, and have always passed the test. It is because of this outstanding record of performance, as well as the superior customer support we receive, that we have decided to stay with FreeWave, despite the multitude of competitors, in the upgrade of our ARVP sites this year." "We are driven to succeed by ensuring that all our products, service and support meet or exceed our customers' and partners' needs," explained Kim Niederman, CEO of FreeWave.

A method for operating a downlink transmitter radio to automatically determine transmission parameters includes monitoring the spectral content of a range of frequencies, and identifying, based on the monitored spectral content, spectral characteristics associated with noise or interference. The downlink transmission channel carrier frequency and channel frequency bandwidth are determined based on the spectral characteristics of the interference together with operating requirements of the wireless transmission system.


A method for operating a receiver in a wireless communication system to synchronize the receiver to a received signal. The received signal is preamble correlated to identify a preamble portion of the signal. Portions of the received signal near the identified preamble portion are processed to determine signal-distorting channel characteristics, such as multipath channel delay spread, of the channel over which the received signal propagated. A digital filter is configured based on the determined channel characteristics to compensate for the signal-distorting channel characteristics, and the received signal is filtered with the configured digital filter. The filtered received signal is second preamble correlated with a second preamble that is different than the first preamble to produce a second preamble correlation. The second preamble correlation is processed to identify delay in the filtered received signal. Portions of the filtered received signal are identified and processed based on the identified delay.


A method for operating at least a first of a plurality of co-located, non-time synchronous radios at a first location communicating data by frames with one or more other remote radios at a second and optionally additional locations in a wireless communication system, to synchronize first or uplink and/or second or downlink frame portions of the frames to mitigate interference between the co-located radios. A frame table of attributes of uplink and/or downlink frame portions associated with frames of the first radio is stored. The spectral content of transmissions from at least a second of the co-located radios is monitored. Based on the monitored spectral content, characteristics for uplink and/or downlink frame portions of the first co-located radio to mitigate interference with the at least second co-located radio are determined. Attributes in the frame table to enable interference-optimized uplink and/or downlink portions of frames of the first co-located radio are updated.


A broadband superheterodyne receiver. Embodiments include an input for receiving an RF signal including an RF data signal at a carrier frequency. An RF mixer coupled to the input shifts the RF data signal from the carrier frequency to an IF frequency. An IF band pass filter coupled to the mixer has a pass band, and band pass filters the signal near the IF frequency. A spectrum analyzer provides information representative of the spectral characteristics of the received RF signal around the RF data signal at the carrier frequency. An IF controller is coupled to the RF mixer and to the spectrum analyzer. The IF controller: (1) determines an interference-mitigating IF frequency within the pass band of the band pass filter that will result in attenuation of undesired portions of the RF signal, and (2) controls the RF mixer to shift the RF data signal to the interference-mitigating IF frequency.


A broadband transceiver includes an input to receive an RF signal, an output to output an RF transmit signal, a receiver section coupled to the input, and a transmitter section coupled to the output. A processor coupled to the receiver section and the transmitter section determines and generates an inverse waveform that will result in attenuation of undesired portions of a received RF signal when summed with the received signal, including optionally at one or more of an RF stage and an IF stage. A summing junction coupled between the processor and receiver section sums the inverse waveform with the received signal.
