BelAir Networks's wireless products for military applications

BelAir Networks, the leading provider of broadband wireless mesh networks, is delivering high-performance wireless mesh solutions for mission-critical Defense applications to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center, Charleston (SSC Charleston). Two new products, the BelAir200D and BelAir100D Wireless Mesh Node for Defense Applications include 802.11n features and support for the 4.4 GHz frequency band.

The 4.4GHz to 5GHz band, with its wider bandwidth, is providing greater flexibility and security for communication systems. A major advantage is that commercially available radio systems based on WLAN and WiMAX technologies can be converted to this military-designated band, enabling a system to be developed and deployed quickly.

“SSC Charleston has extensive experience installing and testing communications systems in ships and at shore and the high performance, reliability and flexibility of the BelAir Networks wireless mesh gear has proven to be a great fit for their wireless requirements,” said Bernard Herscovich, President and CEO, BelAir Networks. “We’ve been honored to serve the needs of many military customers over the past few years and working with SSC Charleston has enabled us to accelerate the availability of the next generation of high-performance wireless mesh solutions for a broad range of Armed Forces applications.”

Building on its success in delivering high-performance wireless mesh solutions for both temporary Defense installations (including emergency, disaster recovery, and special events networks) and permanent networks, such as SSC Charleston’s Wireless Pier Connection Systems (WPCS), the integration of 802.11n features and support for the 4.4 GHz frequency band will further enhance BelAir’s unique fit for Defense applications. BelAir Networks wireless mesh nodes are also broadly deployed in civilian Port security applications providing high-performance networks for video surveillance cameras and chemical detection sensors.

Customized to address the needs of demanding Defense installations at home and abroad, the new BelAir200D and BelAir100D feature support for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna technology and other performance-enhancing features encompassed in 802.11.n. The products also support BelAir Networks new Military Radio Module (MRM) operating in the 4.4 GHz spectrum designated in the US and NATO countries for military fixed and mobile communications.
