Economical High Performance DMR Site Linking

Posted on 27 June 2014 by Kevin Smith

Using the MiMOMax Tornado family of spectrally efficient IP based radios with Power Over Ethernet (PoE) implementation, it is possible to very economically and quickly implement a low latency, high performance linked DMR radio solution.  

The PoE implementation significantly reduces the considerable installation time and costs that are usually associated with Tower, Site RF and Power Cabling.

Utilising the highly integrated MiMOMax Tornado Radio with built in Micro Pass Band Duplexers combined with the PoE Outdoor Mounting Tornado capability, most of the cabling costs for the RF and Power can be eliminated, making a much tidier, lower cost and more reliable installation.The MiMOMax DMR linking solution utilises high orders of modulation, advanced DMR traffic management schemes and narrowband MiMO technologies to provide low latency, ultra-high spectral efficiency linking of up to 13+1 Trunked channels of DMR (or other Digital PMR) while still having significant uncommitted Ethernet bandwidth available ( depending on options ) for other applications. 

Utilising High Order Modulations and MIMO technologies in the UHF or 900MHz frequency bands also enables some near and non-line of sight operation.  In conjunction with the MiMOMax Low Profile, high-gain, 450MHz Panel Antenna, the PoE solution Tornado may be installed very quickly and simply by a single rigger on a single pole.  Antennas can be stacked vertically and horizontally in various configurations to provide more gain for longer paths. This mounting method not only eliminates many of the traditional installation costs associated with RF and power cables, but also improves system performance by minimising cable RF losses.  By housing all of the radio and network electronics in one outdoor weather proof enclosure, the only connection required for an Ethernet Tornado DMR linking solution is one 50VDC PoE Ethernet cable.
