Smart Radios

High-performance embedded MIMO radio/mesh router in a tiny form factor

Description

The Smart Radios are an advanced 2×2 MIMO mesh system designed for easy plug & play integration. The tiny module carries all the bi-directional, high-speed Broadband communications (Control, Telemetry and Payload) into a single RF channel. Because the design is very low SWaP (Space, Weight and Power), the Smart Radios are very popular for implementation in mobile IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) like drones, autonomous vehicles and mobile robotic applications in different industry verticals.

  • Throughput: Up to 100 Mbps
  • Range: Up to 20 Km (12 miles)
  • Size: 57 x 65 x 11 mm (2¼ x 2½ x ½ inches)
  • Weight: 60 grams
  • Ethernet and UART for easy integration
  • Ultra Reliable Low Latency Channel (URLLC) for C&C traffic
  • Optimized video streaming for 4K video
  • 256 bit AES for Data protection
  • Industrial/Military grade construction
  • Form factor compatible models in many frequencies

The Smart Radios employ Doodle Labs’ BII® technology (Broadband for Industrial IoT) with state-of-the-art RF and networking capabilities to enable communication further, faster, and more reliably than ever before. The Ultra Reliable Low Latency Channel (URLLC) transports important C&C data over the wireless while optimized video streaming channel carries crystal clear 4K video.

902-928

License Free ISM Band – USA, Canada, Mexico, Central, South and Latin Americas, Australia, New Zealand and China

The 900 MHz band is license free for use in many countries around the world. At lower frequencies, the radio signals can travel farther and penetrate through the walls and vegetation, providing better NLOS operation. The 900 MHz band provides an excellent alternative to the crowded 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band. The Smart Radio is used by many UAS and Ground Robotic Systems.

Several models are available with 2×2 MIMO and features to match the project budget, Ethernet and UART interfaces, Longer than 20 Km range, upto 100 Mbps TCP/IP throughput, Up to 30 dBm RF power, FCC and IC Certification
