Wi-Fi Board

The Astronode Wi-Fi Board helps you get familiar with and test our solution in a low latency environment without having to wait for a satellite pass for connectivity. It helps you to develop and evaluate the communication link between your asset and the backend Astrocast API.

The Wi-Fi Board provides the same electrical and communication interfaces that your asset requires to interface with the Astrocast Satellite Board. Your data messages can be visualized immediately in the Astrocast Portal or retrieved with the Astrocast API, as if they had been sent via our satellites. The only difference being that your messages were transmitted over Wi-Fi.
