DASH7 is a low power, low latency wireless communications technology that we invented for applications like wide area asset tracking, smart city sensing applications, or blockchain-based proof of location. DASH7 runs over wireless radio technologies including LoRa® , ST Micro’s Spirit, and others.
We started down the path of building DASH7 in the wake of the U.S. DoD’s ISO 18000-7 standardization program. Seeing the value of sub-1GHz frequencies for next-generation IoT products, it was clear that legacy protocols were ill-equipped to the task of addressing use cases like indoor location, peer-to-peer networking, multicast addressing, or even fundamental security and privacy features. Out of the necessity for a better sub-1GHz, low power, low latency networking protocol, we invented DASH7.
For bringing affordable, low power, real-time time location visibility to next-generation mobility options, we believe that our technology, in combination with physical layer technologies like LoRa, solve first and last mile connectivity problems in ways that cellular cannot and will not.
