MeshUltra Tactical IP Mesh Technology
Our revolutionary MeshUltra Tactical COFDM IP Mesh Waveform provides higher throughput and greater spectral efficiency for the most demanding real world applications. With data rates of up to 87Mbps, Auto-Adaptive Modulation up to 64QAM, and bandwidth options down to 1.25MHz,
MeshUltra utilises COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) modulation, splitting the information to be transmitted over a large number of carrier signals, each transmitting at a very low data rate. This approach provides significant enhancements in robustness as well as increased resilience against multipath interference.
MeshUltra also leverages Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology to provide increased spectral efficiency and link robustness, transmitting data in both horizontal and vertical polarisations and fitting twice as much data into a channel as a conventional Single Input Multiple Output (SIMO) mesh. MeshUltra can also automatically and seamlessly transition between MIMO and SIMO operation as required, ensuring the most robust data link possible under any conditions.
