HotPort™ 7010-900 mesh nodes provide reliable Ethernet connectivity over a high-performance, self-forming wireless mesh backbone—indoors and outdoors (outdoor enclosure required). All HotPort nodes have multiple Ethernet ports for connecting network devices or other networks to the wireless mesh. HotPort 7010-900 mesh features a dual radio solution with capability of operating in the 900 MHz spectrum on one radio while concurrently operating in the 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz (U.S. public safety licensed band) or 5 GHz frequency ranges on the other.
Designed for seamless indoor and outdoor operation, the HotPort mesh network securely handles concurrent video, voice, and data applications, making it ideal for municipal, public safety, and industrial networks. The mesh’s self-forming and self-healing properties enable rapid deployment and dependable operation. Firetide’s AutoMesh™ routing protocol manages network load and traffic congestion to optimize mesh-wide performance and capacity. Firetide’s end-to-end solution includes HotPort nodes for mesh infrastructure, HotPoint® access points for wireless access, HotView Pro™ software for a complete management system, and HotView Controller™ for mesh and client mobility.
With the new HotPort 7000-900, users with non-line-of-sight locations can now deploy multi-hop, fully meshed networks and receive its benefits of redundancy and load balancing, thereby improving reliability of their networks. The product enables bandwidth intensive applications such as video surveillance and broadband access traffic and extends mesh reliability, performance and services into these difficult environments.
HotPort 7000-900 mesh is uniquely designed for the noisy 900 MHz spectrum and introduces Firetide’s ‘Smart Adaptive’ mesh technology to mitigate the effects of interference that typically brings down wireless throughput and reliability in this band. Firetide’s noise-aware data path and noise filtering algorithms enable mesh to handle interference from other 900 MHz devices, as well as from adjacent frequency bands taken up by cellular and 3G/ 4G traffic. Tools such as the spectrum analyzer, which is integrated into the product, allow a network administrator to remotely monitor the health of the network and take actions to further optimize the network performance.
