Chirp Announces a World-First Decentralized, Dual-Band, LoRa Gateway
The world is changing. The technological landscape is becoming increasingly interconnected and diverse, with new platforms and IoT promising to change the way we work, live and play; from autonomous vehicles to smart cities. Now, after months of design and manufacturing, Chirp is proud to finally announce our new flagship IoT gateway.
Get ready for The Blackbird.
The Blackbird is a first-of-its-kind dual-band LoRa gateway built to connect IoT devices from across industries and technologies. No matter what devices you need on your IoT network, the Blackbird is the answer for residential or business IoT.
By utilizing the LoRaWAN protocol which sends data in small packets called chirps, the Blackbird is able to connect devices in line-of-sight, with a range of over 100km by utilizing just 5W of power, as much as an LED light bulb. The Blackbird stands out from other gateways by geolocating any LoRa device without needing a GPS module. By making use of the 2.4GHz frequency band, the Blackbird becomes the only true global solution for the IoT. This means up to 50 times more data per second, supercharging the potential use of your IoT devices. For the first time, the devices are no longer region-locked, which means they can now move freely around the globe and be used wherever you need them, regardless if it’s in the UK, China, or Brazil.
The Blackbird’s dual-band technology allows it to remove regional barriers from your choice of IoT devices. By transmitting data in local network bands and 2.4GHz, there is no place on earth that the Blackbird wouldn’t be right at home, giving you the best of both worlds. When paired with our LTE or satellite backhaul, even the most remote locations on earth can be connected to our network. Track your shipments across oceans, manage warehousing or build your smart home network with the simplest and most accessible solution on the market.
With recent improvements, the number of applications for our technology enables the smart transition into the future world of the Internet of Everything. Whether you’re planning to innovate at home by connecting sensors and location trackers, or you’re an already large and established business targeting efficient expansion by using location detection for items in your shop or warehouse, reading smart energy meters, or taking temperature and pollution readings around the city, the Blackbird is the one solution on the market capable of empowering you with the easiest and most reliable, high-tech IoT technologies, all in one place. Embrace the least effort solution by using our plug-and-play solution to all of your IoT ambitions. It’s now easier than ever to be one step ahead of everyone else.
And this isn’t a promise of a future product, the Blackbird is tested, proven, and field-ready. Join our waitlist at chirpwireless.io to be a pioneer of the technology of the future.
