SMART RADIO PLATFORM – 5150-5875 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.

5.5 GHz Band

The 5 GHz/WiFi band has been globally harmonized for license free use, making it a popular choice for many use cases. In urban areas, the interference issues affect the performance. Smart Radio employs special Mesh Rider features to help with interference mitigation. At 5 GHz, the Fresnel Zone diameter is smaller, and the antennas are smaller. For UAS/Drone use cases the Smart Radio has been field proven to achieve more than 10 Km (6 miles) range while transmitting HD Video and C&C data. For Ground Robotics/Wearable use cases, more than 3 Km (2 mile) range has been field tested. This is the only license-free band in Europe that allows 30 dBm of RF power to achieve long-range. Please note that the RM-5500 is NOT compatible with the RM-5800 model.
