BLE vs. sub-1GHz Wireless: From Technology to Applications

Bluetooth Low Energy and sub-1GHz wireless technologies serve various application use cases, This webinar will allow to review the main benefits of both and understand how our products and associated resources are answering to applications needs.

Originally presented: June 8, 2021
Duration: 1 hour
Presented by:


More and more objects in our day-to-day life are battery powered and transceive data.

There are several options to send data from one point to another using wireless technologies, however it is not always easy to understand which one fits at best according well known KPIs such as power consumption, distance coverage, mobile phone integration and of course, cost.

During this webinar we will present the two different technologies and their main Keys Performances Indicators : Bluetooth low energy and sub-1GHz and the advantages/disadvantages of each.

An overview of the BlueNRG and Spirit families will be provided, explaining their main benefits, targeted applications (e.g. metering, asset tracking, wireless sensor node), and how to start designing your own application based on materials available on

Key Takeaways

  • Understand the main KPIs associated to BLE and sub-1GHz
  • Understand our BLE and sub-1Ghz performances
  • Review examples of application use cases
