About FreeWave

    FreeWave has driven the Industrial Internet of Things before the term even existed

    For over 20 years, we have provided long range, reliable and rugged wireless data links for energy, manufacturing, agriculture, utilities, universities and the military.

    FreeWave has millions of units in the field, and has exceeded two million flight hours on leading military and defense platforms. We are mission-critical wireless.

    Now, as the worlds of Information Technology and Operations Technology (e.g., SCADA, RTUs, PLCs) converge, Freewave empowers organizations large and small to get the data they need, when they need it. Our tech makes you lean and mean. Forget “Big Data,” you need the “Right Data” to move your operations forward.

    From our innovative new line of programmable Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) radios to industrial Wi-Fi, our technology platforms focus on the delivery of highly-advanced and easily-deployable solutions when you need to get mission-critical data wirelessly from remote sensors to your servers.

    FreeWave Featured Products


    ZumLink™ 900 Series Ethernet Radio

    Innovation, Power and Flexibility. FreeWave's new ZumLink[tm] 900 Series delivers secure collection, transport, and control of mission-critical data.

    FreeWave’s new ZumLink™ 900 series platform, part of our Sensor-2-Server™ solution delivers secure collection, transport and control of data. The ZumLink 900 Series currently operates in the unlicensed 900 MHz spectrum supporting link rates up to 4 Mbps and is user configurable.

    ZumLink's flexible, high-speed, low power consumption radios also leverage FreeWave's ZumBoost[tm] Network Acceleration Pack to assure the most efficient network platform possible. ZumBoost[tm] introduces techniques such as compression, packet aggregation, forward error correction, and patent-pending Adaptive Spectrum Learning technology to ensure maximum throughput to meet the demands of today's wireless applications.


    With 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of storage onboard, Zumlink 900 Series is also the industry's first app-programmable radio. The Z9-P and Z9-PE models include the ZumIQ Application Environment, which allows the development and deployment of third-party applications and puts intelligence at the edge. ZumIQ provides a Linux-based Debian operating system and storage for applications built in Node-RED, JavaScript, Java, Python, and C++.

    The non-enclosed Z9-P (top, left) comes with a mounting plate and is perfect for custom RF applications. The Z9-PE (bottom, left) is specifically designed for outdoor industrial locations and is reliable under extreme environmental conditions.

    Future-Proof your network now with ZumLink 900 Series.


    ZumIQ™ App Server Network Appliance

    FreeWave's programmable ZumIQ App Server is hardware that provides ruggedized Edge Intelligence for IIoT networks and device ecosystems. Loaded with the ZumIQ Application Environment and standard serial and Ethernet interfaces, the ZumIQ App Server is a programmable network appliance that provides a secure home for applications that rely on sensor data to deliver industrial process intelligence.

    Edge Intelligent Network Appliance

    ZumIQ App Server allows industrial users to make better, faster decisions by placing sensor queries, analytics, and intelligence at the "edge" where operational devices reside. By reducing reliance on core computers (or even the Cloud), ZumIQ App Server eliminates data bottlenecks and points of failure that are inherent in traditional industrial networks.

    Deploy in ANY Network


    ZumIQ App Server's open-source platform allows the device to work with either custom or 3rd party applications. ZumIQ can execute multiple apps simultaneously and integrate into any type of Ethernet network; wired or wireless, even non-FreeWave networks. Combine the ZumIQ App Server with ZumLink 900 Series radios to migrate to a smart wireless network.
