Meet the leader of Wi-Fi HaLow™ IP products for IoT
and partner for world's first Wi-Fi HaLow™ chips
Wi-Fi HaLow™ Technology
Wi-Fi HaLow extends Wi-Fi in the sub-GHz domain to provide superior IoT connectivity to smart devices over long distances with minimal power.
The new Wi-Fi standard is based on the IEEE802.11ah standard which is an integral part of the 802.11 standards family.

Wi-Fi Alliance publishes whitepapers with features & benefits of Wi-Fi HaLow™
Wi-Fi Alliance publishes a Wi-Fi HaLow™ white paper and an in-depth technology overview to position Wi-Fi HaLow™ in their overall Wi-Fi landscape and to highlight its great features for secure, robust, long-range and energy efficient IoT connectivity.
The papers are written with the input of several Wi-Fi Alliance member companies and highlight the results of in-depth technology benchmarks against alternative wireless IoT standards in the sub-GHz domain.
Changing the Game
Methods2Business (M2B) is a European semiconductor company on the leading edge of developing next generation Wi-Fi™ IP products for the global semiconductor chip market. In collaboration with Imec in the Netherlands, the company demonstrated in 2016 the first Wi-Fi HaLow™ (IEEE 802.11ah) radio solution for Ultra-Low-Power IoT applications. Their joint low-power, long-range radio solution claimed to use 10 times less power than state-of-the-art orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) radios on the market.
Today, Methods2Business is one of the leading IP suppliers of Wi-Fi HaLow™ SoCs for long range (up-to 1km), ultra-low power Wi-Fi connectivity in highly secured home and industrial IoT networks, including machine-to-machine communication. The company provides fully integrated MAC and Baseband IP for both stations and access points and delivers design services for IP customizations and Turn Key ASIC projects.
We work with Strong partners
The company builds on tight collaborations with Cadence and RF partners to provide complete wireless modem chips for Wi-Fi HaLow™ stations and access points.
Methods2Business is a contributing member of Wi-Fi Alliance®, the worldwide network of companies that brings the world Wi-Fi®. The company plays a key role in the development of the Wi-Fi HaLow™ certification program.
Our passion is “First-Time-Right” IP
As an industry-leader in SystemC-based design methods, Methods2Business engineers build the full hardware, firmware and software of extremely complex Wi-Fi® IP products in extraordinarily short periods of time using Cadence world-class EDA tools and advanced Tensilica DSP technology. The approach not only furnishes fully integrated, high quality System-on-Chip solutions that can enter the market quickly, but also easy to customize IP blocks for dealing with late spec changes or for offering customers the ability to differentiate their end products. As Tensilica partner, the company is well positioned to better address low power requirements and complex challenges in station and access points by using artificial intelligence.
Founded in 2010, Methods2Business is headquartered in Eindhoven, Brainport region of The Netherlands, and has a design center in Novi Sad, Serbia.
Our IP portfolio
Methods2Business Wi-Fi HaLow™ IP Portfolio
Today M2B is ahead of market in offering fully functional 802.11ah MAC and Baseband IP for Wi-Fi HaLow™ chips.
Methods2Business develops fully integrated MAC and Baseband solutions for Wi-Fi HaLow chipsets. The portfolio covers scalable solutions for sensor-type stations, non-sensor-type stations and access points.
M2B IP portfolio covers clients (stations) and access points which is essential for rolling out the technology in the market
M2B USP is the scalable IP architecture optimizable for lowest power consumption in battery operated devices (e.g. sensors) or highest throughput in high-performance clients (e.g. surveillance camera’s)
M2B developed unique, fully automated test environment for capturing, monitoring and analyzing Wi-Fi HaLow™ traffic in a wireless network and running IEEE 802.11ah compliancy checkers on connected devices under test.
