Revolutionary Wi-Fi tech that can cover two miles and work on coin batteries for months hits key milestone — HaLow gets first hardware after an eight year of wait but rivals abound

HaLow is a technology we’ve covered a few times over the years, starting in 2016, when we reported on what was a new extension of Wi-Fi aimed specifically at the Internet of Things.

Eight years on, and it seems the technology is finally reaching fruition after Morse Micro, recently demonstrated the world’s first live application of Wi-Fi HaLow, 802.11ah with a 3-kilometer reach, setting a record for a long-range video call that extended almost two miles.
