Doodle Labs releases “External” Smart Radio

Doodle Labs is releasing an external version of its popular Smart Radio, a long-range mesh router. The external version brings all the features and capabilities of the embedded Smart Radio platform and houses them in a rugged, IP67-rated weatherproof case. The external version of the Smart Radio now gives customers an off-the-shelf solution they can deploy immediately without additional integration efforts.

The external Smart Radio is also available in a variety of frequency bands using the same form factor to allow an easy swap for various operating requirements. Samples will be available in February 2020 for the C-Band model, which operates at 4400 – 5000 MHz.

The Smart Radio platform provides an ultra-reliable, long-range, high-throughput wireless broadband data link for Industrial IoT applications. Its mesh capabilities make it particularly well-suited for mobile and robotics use cases, such as drones and unmanned ground vehicles.

Moreover, the Smart Radio is the most cost-effective solution in the market, consistently outperforming the competing MANET mesh routers that are 10-20x more expensive. This affordability allows the deployment of disruptive applications at scale.

“As the Smart Radio platform is adopted in a variety of IoT applications, we began hearing a consistent request from customers to provide an external form factor radio,” said Amol Parikh, VP of Marketing at Doodle Labs. “In fact, many of our customers have built their own housing for the embedded version. I am excited that we are able to address the needs of a wider group of customers.”

Additional details are available within the Smart Radio datasheets. For more information, please contact Doodle Labs:
