SMART RADIO PLATFORM – Helix (M1-M6) 1625-2510 MHz – DATASHEET

Smart Radio Platform

Smart Radio provides resilient, low latency, long-range, high-throughput links to implement industrial-grade private wireless mobile mesh Networks.

Helix: Federal M1-M6 Bands, 1625-2510 MHz Band

Our Helix Smart Radios operates on six bands (M1-M6) within 1625-2510 MHz, which provides global coverage so systems can be deployed without requiring multiple SKUs. This frequency range removes a large operational complexity for government customers who have deployments around the world. Moreover, license free 2.4 GHz band is also covered to further increase the global coverage.
