Enhanced Range Intelligent Communications Architecture (ERICA)

A Solution in the 220-222 MHz Band

220-222 MHz

VIE Technologies’ innovative piece of Intellectual Property (IP), Enhanced Range Intelligent Communications Architecture (ERICA), is designed for industrial, critical infrastructure, and agricultural Internet of Things (IoT) applications that can significantly benefit from a long range, low cost, and scalable low data rate solution. ERICA is tailored to leverage 5-kHz wide channels within the 220-222 MHz band, which is the optimal choice to implement these very long communication ranges due to the band’s superior propagation and penetration characteristics. Overall, this is a simple, stable and capacity-efficient approach to the Low Power Wide Area Network (LP-WAN) IoT network model.
