RaptorX Dual Channel White Space Broadband Network Radio

Full-Duplex RaptorXR VHF and UHF Broadband Digital White Space Radio Systems Provide Reliable, Extended-Range High-Speed Wide-Area Infrastructure Backbone Network Connectivity for Remote Multimedia Services.

RaptorX Single Channel Broadband Radio
The RaptorXR wireless network technology provides the network designer, operator and service provider six major performance advantages providing superior reach and reliability capability over conventional LTE/4G, Microwave and Satellite terrestrial solutions.

TV Band White Space Spectrum Advantage

Operation in the VHF and UHF bands, provides:

  • Up to 5 times the range, coverage and penetration within indoors and in rural settings compared to WiFi or WiMax (See Table 1)
  • Superior RF reach and coverage in non-line of sight and forested areas
  • Spectrum Agility and OFDM waveform capability increases throughput and avoids on-air interference
  • Scalable payload capacity to respond to coverage and capacity demands
  • RaptorXR’s patented Spectrum Management Engine, works with iConnectiv’s FCC Database, to assure continuous link reliability

Network Advantage

RaptorXR’s embedded network engine enables deployment of any network architecture ranging from system critical single-link multi-point networks to multi-link and ad-hoc peer-to-peer mesh systems. Multi-channel bonding and user-defined redundancy schemes maintain network QoS and reliability. Additional capabilities include channel and link bonding to enhance throughput and reliability. RaptorXR’s proprietary time-division multiple access technology enables SCADA and data monitoring and control systems to tailor RaptorXR’s performance to their particular needs.

Network Management Advantage

SafariView, RaptorXR’s embedded Operations, Administration and Maintenance tool provides secure local or remote configuration and control of each RaptorXR node and local network interfaces (Windows, Linux, iOS and Android platforms). RaptorXR supports nearly all 3rd party enterprise network management applications including OpenNMS.

Cyber Advantage

The standard RaptorXR embeds a number of Security Monitors and Controls to protect against non-authorized access to each Raptor node. RaptorXR’s integrated crypto engine can be tailored to support a wide variety of commercial and government cyber defense requirements.

Application Versatility Advantage

Reliable communications is core to meeting tomorrow’s objective of secure integrative operations. RaptorXR’s network scalability and versatility allows system planners to conceive, plan, and meet specific range, coverage, security and performance requirements at minimum life-cycle cost in the shortest period.

Economic Advantage

RaptorXR is the low cost solution of choice. Its broad operating spectrum capability and longer reach means less equipment and infrastructure, providing a real alternative to VSAT, microwave, and fiber in challenging environments.
