RAD Data's Airmux-200 Now Certified by Rural Utility Service

Mae Kowalke, TMCnet Associate Editor

Telecommunications access equipment specialist RAD Data Communications announced Wednesday that its Airmux-200 point-to-point broadband radio now is certified by the Rural Utility Service (RUS).
In a press release, RAD explained that RUS, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is in charge of long-term, low-interest loans to qualifying rural telephone companies.
Since RAD’s product is now on the RUS List of Materials, carriers can use government loan funds to purchase the Airmux-200.
Airmux-200 offers the following key features and advantages
  • Capable of transporting as many as four T1s with Ethernet traffic
  • Transmits at a full-duplex rate of up to 18 Mbps covering distances up to 50 miles
  • Supports a variety of unlicensed frequencies including 2.4, 4.9, 5.3 and 5.8 GHz
“The Airmux-200 is ideal for rural carriers and service providers who seek to cost-effectively provide services to businesses and consumers in areas without extensive physical infrastructure and lacking a population density sufficient to justify physical build-out costs,” RAD said in its announcement.
The company suggested that the Airmux-200 also is an excellent product for business, education and public safety organizations because it extends the reach of networks without requiring a reliance on service provider or carrier infrastructure.
RAD also listed the following applications where Airmux-200 radios already have been deployed:
  • Remote video surveillance backhaul
  • Cellular backhaul
  • Last mile solutions
  • Emergency response
  • Temporary deployments
  • Municipal communications networks
