Arcata, CA – March 1, 2010 – Carlson Wireless Technologies, a global leader in energy efficient wireless communications for rural and remote applications, announces the integration of a new Power over Ethernet (PoE) device into its popular solar powered wireless product line. The new PoE unit increases system efficiency by up to 45%, allowing for greater solar system run times.
Other benefits include reductions in required solar panel size as well as the elimination of costly inverters. Carlson Wireless engineers also note that the new PoE allows a significant increase in powered cable length, expanding site configuration options.
Designed for remote locations, Carlson’s Trailblazer and LongHaul microwave backhaul radios integrate with their solar power kits—directly monitoring both radio and solar equipment via data throughput, temperature and voltage readings; sending e-mail alerts at customer-set thresholds to communicate problems before failure occurs.
“For over a decade we have been designing and manufacturing solar powered wireless voice and data links for very last mile”, said Jim Carlson, CEO of Carlson Wireless. “Our engineering team is always striving to improve performance and deliver the best equipment possible.”
Carlson Wireless designs and manufactures microwave communications systems that feature wireline quality, ultra-low latency, long distance TDM/IP voice and broadband data including POTS, 4-wire (E&M) to T1/E1s and Ethernet for telecoms, cellular backhaul, utilities (including Smart Grid) and public safety. Carlson offers North America frequency plans including unlicensed 900MHz, 2.4 GHz, 5.x GHz and licensed public safety 4.9 GHz frequencies as well as International frequency plans for 700 MHz and 3.5 GHz.
