With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), the number of smart devices in homes and businesses is growing, necessitating the need to connect more devices to Wi-Fi over a broader region. To meet this need, a new Wi-Fi technology known as Wi-Fi HaLow was created, which claims to have a range of up to 1km.

Wi-Fi HaLow is designed to connect a large number of IoT devices across a distance of 1km from the access point, such as smart speakers, smart air conditioners, and other industrial smart equipment. The Wi-Fi Alliance, a global organisation that certifies Wi-Fi-focused businesses, has given the technology its seal of approval.

Surprisingly, the Wi-Fi HaLow can connect to existing smart devices and works with current Wi-Fi protocols. This new technology is touted to vastly improve present Wi-Fi setups because it does not necessitate the installation of additional infrastructure.

If you're curious in how the technology works, keep in mind that it uses less energy than conventional Wi-Fi networks. The Wi-Fi HaLow has been designed to function in the sub-1 GHz frequency, rather than the 2.4GHz to 5GHz range that we now utilise for Wi-Fi.

The Wi-Fi HaLow's low frequency allows for a longer wavelength, allowing it to transfer data across larger distances. However, in order to do this, it lowers communication speeds, making it suited for IoT gadgets that run with less data.

The Wi-Fi HaLow may be used for a variety of purposes, including connecting smart devices in homes and businesses. It may also be used to link and operate smart city goods like traffic lights, traffic monitors, and other similar devices. It can also be used to link sensors over wide swaths of farmland.

The new Wi-Fi technology has a number of uses, but it is not a replacement for the classic Wi-Fi frequency, which is used to carry massive volumes of data in a short period of time.

For the time being, there is no indication on when this technology will be commercially accessible, but given its numerous advantages, it might be just around the corner.
