Our core technology is a 100% software-based solution that is hardware-agnostic. EchoRing can potentially run on any physical radio chip and operate in any frequency band.
This is because EchoRing is a MAC Layer communications protocol, the MAC layer itself being a sublayer of the OSI Model’s Data Link layer (Layer 2).
Our software is available for Texas Instruments’ WiLink 8 chipset, which is integrated into R3’s hardware products and is a standard Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11n) radio chip. Software for other chipset families is currently under development.
