CalAmp Corp., a leading provider of wireless products, services and solutions, announced the availability of the Harrier-900(TM) multimode wireless router, the first programmable digital communications device to combine both licensed and unlicensed 900-MHz-range radio spectrum capability. The Harrier-900 is ideally suited for mission-critical operations in electric utilities, oil and gas, water/waste water, transportation and public safety markets.
One radio, two frequency bands, multiple capabilities
The Harrier-900 seamlessly operates in both the 901 MHz licensed NPCS (Narrowband PCS) band and the 902-928 MHz unlicensed ISM (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) band, providing users with high-speed and extended-range coverage. With this single, flexible wireless data solution for industrial-class applications, the Harrier-900 gives customers the ability to mix and match licensed and unlicensed bands on the same wireless infrastructure, programming devices on a per site basis as needed.
The Harrier-900 offers data throughput speeds up to 512 kbps when operating in the 902-928 MHz band for shorter-range, higher-speed data applications. For greater range, hard-to-reach sites or extreme-interference environments, Harrier-900 can operate in the 901 MHz privately licensed band, permitting higher-power transmission and interference protection for reliable communications today and in the future.
