Non Cellular Smart Energy

RFMD's Smart Energy and ZigBee® product offerings cover a wide array of industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) frequency bands from 169MHz through 2.5GHz. These provide support for multiple industry standards, including IEEE802.15.4 and IEEE802.11af/ah. Our RF component solutions support many applications, such as Internet-of-Things (IoT), Smart Energy, AMR/AMI metering, Home Entertainment, Home Sensors, Alarm Systems, Thermostats, Demand and Mesh Networks, Mobile Service (i.e. mobile healthcare), Commercial Building Monitoring, and Industrial Device Control (i.e. machine-to-machine M2M).

While many of these applications are straightforward, the following may require further understanding to see if this technology is suitable for your industry needs:

  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) -- This is relevant to particular objects and their virtual representations in an Internet-like setting. IoT has the capacity to equip objects with identifying devices or machine-readable identifiers (i.e. barcodes).
  • AMR/AMI metering -- Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) allow for efficiency in collecting data from energy and water metering devices. This data can be automatically transferred to a database for tracking, billing, calibration, and more.
  • Demand and Mesh Networks -- These applications take the changing traffic demand of wireless networks and offer predictive routing that keeps traffic moving. Mesh networks also work to examine possible, future traffic demands and plan routing strategies, accordingly.


Keeping with our smart energy standards, RFMD’s product portfolio emphasizes low power consumption, cost effectiveness, and reliability for a longer life span (no matter the battery size). The frequency bands allow for world-wide coverage and support multiple regions with a single device.
