History

Radio Data Networks was founded in 1995. Its founders have accumulated over 40-years of sector experience and have been responsible for the design and deployment of many hundreds of thousands of devices, the development of some of Europe’s largest smart networks for water, gas, the environment and rail. As we speak RDN’s technology delivers circa 450-million messages per annum, main over RDN’s own private licenced radio channels.

Over the past decade RDN’s focus has been biased towards Green Technology & Innovations which has won the company numerous prestigious industry awards

RDN’s technology has been adopted by government agencies ranging from the UK’s EA & NRW through to 7 major utilities, the UK’s NHS, industry and agriculture.

In 2019 RDN was proud to become on  of the founder members of the Zero Pollution Network and foundation a Green Technology charity/organisation to promote and fund pollution reduction technologies Zero Pollution Network

Intellectual Property

When it comes to IP we have patented technology including smart sensors and flow regulators. Further, we have dozens of complete designs that form building blocks that permit complete systems and solutions to be created at minimal cost and delay. We own all the injection moulding & extrusion tools and PCB designs that we use. We own the source code to all embedded firmware used within our product portfolio permitting us to offer a bespoke firmware, functions and branding.

Our Networks

In the UK we own private radio spectrum that covers the whole of the UK reaching as far as the Isle of Scilly in the West, the Shetland Islands in the North and also Northern Ireland. These network channels are used by our devices to deliver data in real-time to provide 24/7/365 live monitoring and control of many assets. In addition we are capable of delivering messages over the Cellular NB-IoT or via the Iridium Satellite Network.
