New radio technology set to use any possible frequencies

by Andrew Roach on May 22, 2013

There has been greater competition for frequency licenses in the last year or so as providers look to try and stake their claim on the wireless market.

However, wireless network manufacturer Redline Communications has revealed that it’s now possible for radios to switch between a variety of different frequencies thanks to a change in the components inside the device.

The Toronto based company has deigned it Ultra Wireless Transport (UWT) system to operate between 100MHz and 6GHz making it suitable for use on almost any platform or network.

There has been a battle between providers to secure licenses to operate on certain frequencies and provide broadband and wireless services to their competitors.

Redline has stated that the UWT was devised as an alteration to their RDL-3000 radios to help reduce its energy consumption and make it much more portable than previous incarnations.

However, the trick behind Redline’s newest innovation is that it can access both licensed and unlicensed frequencies giving users much more choice and flexibility about what they can access on the device.

But the communications company are not just looking to use the UWT technology on radios as they are aiming to move into the internet battle further down the line.

They believe that the technology could be beneficial to help rural communities get a high-speed internet connection or phone line further down the track.

This could happen in the not too distant future as Redline have now tweaked their devices to use digital signals rather than analogue making it possible for new devices to work on different frequencies and use other form of technology.

With the new capabilities, in means that the UWT will be able to pick up wireless speeds of up to 54mbps on a 12 MHz channel that has a range of 60km.

Redline’s new system has already been certified and approved by Industry Canada meaning that it might not be long before we see the devices hitting shop shelves. On top of that, if the UWT can regularly hit the speeds that Redline claims, it could be the gap needed to help bring rural towns and villages up to speed with modern tech that is already in abundance in major towns and cities.
