CalAmp Corp. has announced availability of the Viper-200, a wireless Ethernet/IP router and bridge for high speed, high-power licensed operations in the 216 to 222 MHz band. According to the company’s news release on CNN Money, the Viper-200 advances industrial-grade licensed networking solutions, with power output to 10 watts, data rates up to 128 kbps and full router and bridge capability.
“Viper-200 also sets new standards for wireless security. In addition to a Radius client, this radio offers protocols such as AES 128, 192 and 256-bit encryption in a CalAmp-designed cryptographic module that has been built to meet requirements in the NIST FIPS 140-2 standard.
“Like existing Viper models in the VHF, UHF and 900 MHz bands, the Viper-200 supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint network configuration options and offers single radio store-and-forward operation. This permits network designers to create multi-hop peer-to-peer-like architectures that significantly reduce the need for, and cost of, additional wireless infrastructure.”
