Wireless mesh company Firetide today announced its new HotPort 6000 indoor and outdoor mesh nodes featuring a dual radio backhaul.
The HotPort 6000 mesh nodes feature high-powered radios that support both licensed and unlicensed bands, eliminating the need to purchase and install separate radios for each spectrum. Bandwidth for both radios can be combined to provide 70 Mbps throughput for "fat" point-to-point backhaul links or for high-resolution video surveillance networks. The radios can also be set to deliver a sustained 35 Mbps bandwidth across an unlimited number of hops if a multi-hop or linear network topology is required.
