LongHaul ST Series

By: Carlson Wireless Technologies  09-12-2011

Best-in-Class Throughput, Latency, and Network-Monitoring Capabilities

The LongHaul™ ST series is the newest addition to Carlson's already-impressive LongHaul™ family of wireless microwave connectivity solutions. Designed in response to the ever-changing needs of the municipal government and broadband industries, the ST features higher throughput and greater networking capabilities than its predecessors. In addition, the ST is especially efficient in forming a "daisy-chain" network, extending its own 20-mile range five, six, or even a dozen times. In an independent field test, the ST experienced no signal degradation in a daisy-chain network with five links.

If high throughput and low latency aren't enough for your application, the ST also incorporates the tools needed to fine-tune network settings, manage bandwidth allocation, and prioritize different network tasks—all from within the included graphic user interface (GUI). Gig-E ports allow for unrestricted data output at the same speed as over-the-air (OTA) transmission (up to 270 MBps).

Multiple Network and Unit Configurations Available

Whatever your network looks like—be it a simple point-to-point link or a complex multi-point or daisy-chain configuration—the ST can deliver the IP data you require. The ST is available in both an indoor rack-mount version and a sturdy outdoor enclosure, making it an ideal solution for multiple industries and applications.

"Three times the performance in test conditions.."

"In a daisy-chain scenario, each link needs to be extremely fast and the delay extremely short. When Carlson Wireless told me what the LongHaul™ ST could do, well, it looked too good to be true. So I decided to test it myself, both at my own office and in the field in as stringent an environment as I could engineer. The results were exciting. The LongHaul ST performed exactly as they said it would. It had three times the performance in test conditions compared with three competing companies. I'm impressed that Carlson Wireless is able to control every aspect of the product."

Surveillance and Municipal Applications

The ST’s low latency, high throughput, and multiple security and encryption options make it an attractive option for surveillance networks and municipal governments. The ST is capable of transmitting high-quality video at extremely fast speeds, making it easier than ever to monitor security or traffic cameras from a remote location. It’s even possible to combine the abilities of an ST with a LongHaul™ TDM radio and further transmit the camera data up to another 60 miles.

Networking and PBX Extension

It is often a challenge for businesses, universities, and government campuses to connect multiple buildings on the same computer or PBX network without laying wire or fiber. Using the LongHaul™ ST buildings that are miles apart can be connected wirelessly on the same digital network, extending PBX systems and systems networks.

If you need to backhaul a large IP network, high-definition surveillence or other video, or if your application simply demands the highest speed and throughput, the ST can transmit at a rate of up to 270 MB/s over-the-air. While other companies claim their IP radios can go the distance, only the LongHaul™ TDM uses Carlson's proprietary TrueTDM™ technology for wireline-quality signals at distances IP radios can't reach—more than 60 miles.


LongHaul Family

The ST's high throughput (up to 270 MB/s over-the-air) and multiple security and encryption options make it an attractive option for surveillence networks, municipal governments or any user looking to transmit high-quality video and extremely high speeds. The ST can also be used to connect universities, businesses or government campuses with multiple buildings on the same computer or PBX network—without laying wire or fiber.


Trailblazer Series

Whether it delivers voice, data or both, each Trailblazer® model uses state-of-the art digital electronics to provide network quality without expensive right of way costs or wireline hard costs. All components, including radio, channel bank, power supply, CPU are fully integrated into a rackmount or single small 3kg / 8 lb outdoor enclosure.
