Is RFDP8 better than BlueTooth, ZigBee, WLAN and other protocols?

RF Digitals RFDP8 proprietary patent-pending frequency agility protocol operates in the internationally accepted 2.4 GHz band. The RFDP8s leading-edge advanced algorithm is not burdened by a heavy-weight stack as is BlueTooth, ZigBee, WLAN and other protocols, which are well suited for cross-manufacturer interoperability. The RFDP8 protocol is highly robust and effective where there is a need to penetrate through a high saturation of RF noise which is common in nearly all environments today.

It is especially effective and can easily coexist in heavy WiFi environments, which very few technologies can do successfully without the need of excessive processing power.  The protocol strategically changes channels frequently to deliver its payload to the destination device reliably, yet not too excessively as to demand too much internal processing power which allows it to run with a very low current consumption profile and fast start up times allowing substantial flexibility with implementation.  The RFDP8 protocol reduces the amount of on-air traffic and unnecessary chatter due to its unique and highly efficient design, which does not require bilateral registration and association as do many other technologies today.  The RFDP8 does not require ack-nacks to complete a packet delivery, it’s unique technique of packet delivery, recovery and correction allows it to work as a one-way link, hence drastically simplifying users’ applications which always results in more a robust wireless system.  The RFDP8 protocol combined with RF Digital’s leading-edge RF Module hardware delivers a highly robust method of delivering user data from point to point, point to multi-point or multi-point to multi-point, transmitter-receiver, transceiver, serial or switch on/off data modes.  The protocol is designed to work seamlessly with RF Digital’s hardware modules, the combination results in ultra long range at ultra low currents without concern for compliance approvals since modules such as the RFD21733 come with FCC approval for USA and have passed CE – ETSI emission testing for European requirements.  The RFDP8 protocol adds several dB of range gain passively through it’s advanced data recovery technique which pulls valid data out of a noisy environment adding effective gain which results in more range, delivering the net result, which is a very robust wireless system.  All of this is built into the overhead of the RFDP8 protocol and RF Digital modules, so it’s all done behind the scenes, allowing the user to focus on building their application and simply putting data into the radio device as a wireless pipe and easily receiving it on the other end.
