AUGUST SEPTEMBER 2015 Product information and performance claims are provided by manufacturers. 16 NETWORK SYSTEMS Reliable Charging Solutions For Two-Way Radios Endura TWC1, TWC1M, and TWC6M chargers for two-way radio batteries are smart, adaptable, and reliable. And they are available for nearly every radio brand. The TWC1 is a single-unit model design for efficient rapid charging on a desktop. The TWC1M is a drop-in-style charger designed for in-vehicle use. For multi-unit charging, the TWC6M is ideal for use in an office, shop, or mobile command center. It offers added flexibility because the charging pods can be selected to accommodate different radio models or brands, an added benefit to organizations that use a mix of radios. All Endura models allow a battery to be charged on or off the radio and incorporate smart circuitry that prevents over-charging, while providing automatic recharging when a radio remains powered on. In addition, the TWC1, TWC1M, and TWC6M are able to iden- tify certain battery fault conditions and alert you with a specific code. These models are sometimes referred to as quad chemistry chargers because they can charge Li-Ion, LiPo, NiMH, and NiCd batteries depending on the specific charging pod installed. TESSCO offers the base chargers and pods separately in order to enable our customers to choose the multi-chemistry and multi-radio brand combinations that work best for them.

TESSCO No. 537627 Vanguard 5530 Fixed ATT List: $799.00 Vanguard 5530 Connectivity to the Site-Selecting the Right Backhaul Solution Ericsson Wireless Fiber Microwave Solutions Connectivity and mobility have enabled people to thrive in a networked society. Speed of connections is critical and helps drive the ability to fuel innovation. Of course, innovation can create complexities within a network, but there are many ways to create a system that considers business transformation. Ericsson can help you accomplish that. Microwave solutions are an extremely bene- ficial option to help address the complexities of today's networks. Backhaul is often a require- ment, but it must be set up properly. Many con- ditions and variables that must be considered when selecting the ideal backhaul solution. Ericsson strives to foresee even the most obscure variables that could stand in the way of a powerful, reliable and effective microwave backhaul solution. Beginning with the basics, every solution needs high node capacity, compact and modular building practices, advanced packet functionality and features that are aligned and backward-compatible across different nodes. However, many natural variables could have an effect on how viable the solution is. Four factors that need to be considered are: Distance Distance can affect power transmission between sites Topography Natural elements of the land, including rolling hills, dense trees, mountain ranges, etc. can impact performance and reliability of microwave Environment Where equipment will be placed is critical-high winds, corrosive salt air or extreme hot or cold temperatures can affect the equipment and of course, human resources needed to access the sites Availability Depends on the criticality of the situation Weighing these factors is important to ensure that your microwave solution is designed and architected to address your business operations both for current and future needs. Working with Ericsson, you can be assured that we apply our extensive real-world experience to align your solution with all relevant factors including CAPEX and OPEX requirements. With the limited infrastructure required on site, low logistical operational costs are involved, not to mention the benefits of the direct path of data on a point-to-point network topology. Of course, many network topologies exist, and each of them has pros and cons. Each topology serves slightly different pur- poses, whether you're trying to steer clear of natural obstructions, ensure scalability (add new locations, if necessary) or create a resilient network with no single point of failure. With more than 3.2 million microwave radi- os deployed with 800 customers around the world, Ericsson has seen almost every type of microwave backhaul scenario possible, with every possible variable, natural obstacle and building plan. Building a microwave system can consist of both indoor and outdoor options. Once again, the option you choose depends on business operation needs and external factors outlined here. Wireless Fiber (MINI-LINK) is Ericsson's leading microwave solution that offers all-outdoor, all-indoor and split mount solutions that scale from single hop applica- tions to large aggregation nodes. As organizations embrace the networked society, connecting workers, workplaces and machinery that benefit from wireless technology, critical considerations are scalability, flexibility and reliability. You can rely on Ericsson to deliver real-world microwave solutions that meet your business needs today and into the future. Visit www.tessco.com/go/ericsson.
