Does Locata interfere with Wi-Fi, or vice versa?

Thursday, 1 November 2012

The short answer is no; however as with every other radio technology that has to share a frequency band with other users, appropriate intelligence and configuration is required when designing and installing potentially competing networks.

Locata has gone to great lengths to ensure LocataNets can interoperate with Wi-Fi networks without deleterious effects to either network. In fact, LocataNets are currently deployed in open-cut mine environments where the entire area is covered with Wi-Fi signals for data communications. LocataNets have been installed in these environments, and both systems operate effectively in the deployment area.
