A multi-hop wireless network for battery-operated devices and routers.

WHAT IS WiseNet?

WiseNET is a multihop wireless sensor and actuator network that combines low energy and low latency not only for the end nodes but also for the routers or “coordinators”. It is thus possible to operate with battery-powered routers and just use sensor nodes as routers. WiseNet does not require any setup and provides dynamic routing, management and remote software update. It has been used in numerous real-world deployments from agriculture, water management and safety to smart homes. WiseNet is available on COTS transceivers as well as on optimized CSEM SoCs.
