- Harris MBC-100 provides first responders with vehicular access over 700 MHz LTE networks to high-bandwidth applications, such as video and data
- The mobile subscriber device will allow simultaneous access to key applications such as secure streaming video feeds and critical public safety databases while at the same time broadcasting vehicle geo-location information
- The ruggedized enclosure design is mechanically hardened to be water and dust resistant and connects to an existing vehicular computer over a single USB cable for both power and data
Harris Corporation introduced the Harris MBC-100 mobile subscriber device for high-bandwidth applications over 700 MHz LTE networks. The MBC-100 provides first responders with the capability for simultaneous use of high-bandwidth mobile applications, including secure streaming live video feeds, access to public safety databases, mobile productivity applications and geo-location information.
The Harris MBC-100 delivers up to 18 Mbps of service to LTE network subscribers for high-bandwidth applications. It also delivers 128-bit encryption for secure voice and data communication while utilizing industry-standard 3GPP Release 8 telecommunications requirements for 700 MHz LTE networks. These requirements mean that the MBC-100 is capable of advanced LTE modulations including 2x2 Multiple Input/Multiple Output (MIMO) that allows the device to boost network performance by utilizing two antennas for the transmitter and receiver.
To support location-based services and situational awareness functionality — both high-demand applications for law enforcement — the MBC-100 includes an internal GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver with a customized user interface that provides access to the subscriber's position. The client is also built to rugged public safety requirements and features a mechanically hardened case that is both water-resistant and safe from electrical interference.
The MBC-100 connects easily to existing vehicle-mounted computers through a single USB 2.0 connector for both power and data; an optional external power connector can be used if needed. The MBC-100 includes Windows and Linux drivers, which allow existing data applications to establish network connectivity through the device.
