TELTRONIC PRESENTS THE MCBS, ITS NEW OUTDOOR TETRA BASE STATION WHICH, THROUGH THE USE OF SDR (SOFTWARE DEFINED RADIO) TECHNIQUES, PROVIDES UP TO FOUR CARRIERS IN A SINGLE UNIT.
Thanks to its multi-carrier technology, the MCBS is able to offer the performance of a fixed indoor base station in a single compact device which is prepared to operate outdoors without requiring civil works for its installation, which means a significant reduction in costs and deployment time in railway environments where the whole line requires coverage.
Likewise, its RF power can reach up to 40W, much higher than other compact outdoor base stations, so fewer units are needed to provide coverage over a larger area. Also at OPEX level, the MCBS represents significant savings, as it has much lower consumption than other solutions currently on the market.
The new base station is certified according to railway standards and can be used for railway signalling applications. In addition, it supports higher levels of traffic and user concentration and, should it be necessary to improve its capacity, this would not require new hardware and could be increased remotely at the software level.
This new development represents an evolution of Teltronic’s NEBULA infrastructure, a solution deployed in more than a hundred transport projects, and which highlights the advantages of TETRA in these environments: less interference, greater spectral efficiency, critical communications functions and data services that facilitate train-ground operation and other applications.
