"The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as "connected devices" and "smart devices"), buildings, and other items—embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data." - Wikipedia


Internet of Things (IoT)


As mobility technologies evolve, IoT and wireless have become synonymous. The ability to offer safe, secure and swift data transport over the air is mandatory for manufacturers and providers alike. Blending wireless hardware successfully into diverse IoT environments requires experts with significant knowledge and experience to avoid potential data corruption.

At WavCatcher, we have those experts. Our team understands that IoT is a complex web of variables, not unlike many military applications and defense communication systems. We take a qualified and systematic approach to ensure that what is developed in the sandbox will likely become a reality in the field. If you have an IoT project and would like to mitigate risk, please contact us here for a free initial consultation.


"A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets." - Wikipedia


Realizing the smart city vision by overpopulating targeted areas with antennas is not a practical nor aesthetic solution. Strong smart antenna technology and strategic antenna positioning are critical in minimizing and defending against multipath interference.

An effective smart city supports its native aesthetic while satisfying its present and future connectivity needs and data consumption. WavCatcher's experience, team and technology can provide substantial cost savings by helping a city and its providers to ensure a successful wireless deployment."

Realizing the connected car requires converging the aesthetic with wireless communications hardware. Like smartphones, car manufacturers design first and integrate after. This is why early autonomous vehicles were not attractive as manufacturers pursued plug and play solutions for mobile satellite communications and collision avoidance. It is not unusual for us to hear the frustrations shared by engineers within the auto industry, because they like most developers advocate a design in solution.


Decades ago, our core team has created conformal mobile satellite (MSAT) solutions for the defense and aerospace industries. Historically, adoption of MSAT integration has been slow because of cost considerations. The not so coincidental emergence of the smartphone, technological advances, and market demands have brought conformal solutions to the forefront. The question of cost is now a matter of which solution the manufacturer chooses to implement.

At WavCatcher, we advocate using printed circuit solutions to create the necessary aesthetic desired by the marketplace. From previous RFPs, we have designed both plug and play and integrated solutions for the interior cabin, terrestrial and MSAT communications. By working with the manufacturer, we can substantially reduce costs by eliminating extraneous components and metamaterials while achieving the desired performance parameters.


Antennas are more than plug and play components. To us, the antenna is the key in ensuring data travels quickly, efficiently and uncorrupted through the wireless waves. In an ever-evolving mobile culture, catching the signal is necessary for connectivity and communication.


Unfortunately, most present day antenna design relies on the utilization of traditional antennas. This creates self imposed limitations. Although antennas must follow the laws of physics, there are ways to design beyond what exists. That's what WavCatcher does. Problem solving is our way of life. It is the reason we are able to achieve best-in-class performance in smaller and flexible form factors.

We can overcome artificial barriers in the development process if we take the time to move beyond the generally accepted and adopt newer technologies. Doing so will lead to substantial cost savings as well as offer competitive advantages in the marketplace. It takes the synergy of experience, technology and teamwork to create solutions that improve the mobile experience. That's the challenge we accept, which is why the WavCatcher mantra is "go farther."
