Claim of US Patent No. 9,967,883

1. A method comprising:transmitting a wireless frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) network-negotiation signal using network initialization parameters, wherein the initialization parameters comprise a network maximum spreading factor, a network maximum power, and a minimum carrier frequency channel bandwidth;
receiving, from a user device, a wireless FHSS response signal, in response to the network-negotiation signal, indicating a minimum link budget with the user device, and indicating a maximum data rate required to control the user device;
selecting optimum parameters for communicating with the user device based on the minimum link budget and the minimum data rate, wherein the optimum parameters comprise an optimum spreading factor, an optimum power, and an optimum carrier frequency channel bandwidth;
transmitting the optimum parameters to the user device using the network initialization parameters; and
setting communication parameters for communication with the user device to the optimum parameters.
