In which frequency band does a LocataNet operate?

Thursday, 1 November 2012

LocataNets currently operate in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band. The ISM band is license free worldwide. The 2.4 GHz band is also used by two well-known global technologies – Wi-Fi (802.11) and Bluetooth.

A LocataNet can be configured to operate at other radio frequencies, but initially the ISM band provides a straightforward, license free, continuous frequency spectrum. Using the ISM band also allows the Locata system to co-exist with GPS signals (i.e. LocataNet signals do not jam GPS) and permits a Locata-enabled GPS receiver to simultaneously use GPS and Locata signals.
