On-Ramp Wireless has developed the first wireless system purpose-built to efficiently connect billions of hard-to-reach devices in metro scale and other challenging environments.

On-Ramp Wireless’ field proven Ultra-Link Processing™ (ULP) system enables low-power monitoring and control applications within Smart Grid, industrial sensing, and location tracking.

Operating in unlicensed spectrum, On-Ramp Wireless’ innovative signal processing technology finds extremely weak signals even in high noise environments. This results in extreme coverage, high levels of immunity to interference, and a significantly lower cost to deploy, operate and maintain a wide area wireless system.

On-Ramp Wireless’ revolutionary Ultra-Link Processing™ (ULP) technology solves the main barriers to large-scale deployment of wireless device networking. ULP is capable of a receive sensitivity of -142dBm, providing a 15-45 times advantage over competing free spectrum and cellular protocols in terms of range and capacity. The system is scalable up to millions of endpoints.

Initial target applications include Smart Grid, Process Automation and Industrial Condition Monitoring, Remote Monitoring, and Energy Management. On-Ramp Wireless’s hardware has successfully been tested at a greater than 40-mile range in the 2.4GHz free ISM band while preserving low-power operation.

On-Ramp Wireless is one of the 10 winners of GE's Ecomagination Home Challenge.
