XetaWave Announces Availability of Xeta9x-Emancipator Series of 900 MHz Radios & Xeta9-INS
Xeta9x Offers Data Rates of 9.6 kbps to 2.6 Mbps for Less than $400
BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — XetaWave, a Boulder-based wireless technology provider, today announced availability of the Xeta9x-Emancipator series of high performance, low cost software defined 900 MHz radios, and the patent-pending Xeta9-INS which enables XetaWave radios to coexist with other (non-XetaWave) radios in a single, integrated network. The Xeta9x-Emancipator series offers the industry’s best price:performance in the 902-960 MHz band by delivering Ethernet connectivity with data rates of 9.6 kbps to 2.6 Mbps over multiple bands for less than $400 in quantity through qualified resellers. The serial version of the Xeta9x-Emancipator series can support up to 921.6 kBaud throughput over multiple bands for less than $320 in quantity.
The Xeta9-INS, Intelligent Network Synchronizer, is a Xeta9-E radio which contains a special combining/sensing module. This module combines the RF outputs of an existing non-XetaWave master radio with the Xeta9-E radio such that both can use the same antenna. The module then allows the Xeta9-INS radio to learn the timing and frequency usage of the non-XetaWave radio and adjust its settings to minimize interference. This enables customers to continue to leverage their existing investment in legacy radio networks while taking advantage of the increased performance and capability of XetaWave’s new generation of software defined radios. For oil and gas applications, by example, customers can add high performing XetaWave radios to a legacy network to provide Ethernet to the wellhead, improve SCADA polling times and throughput, and add video surveillance of critical assets.
Jonathan Sawyer, XetaWave co-founder and CEO/CTO, commented, “The Xeta9-INS allows our customers to add a XetaWave network in a true ‘plug and play’ manner without the need for additional antennas or infrastructure. Even better, the Xeta9x-Emancipator Series offers our customers a state of the art software defined, high performance radio for less cost than they currently pay for old legacy radios. This is an unbeatable combination!”
