Private Wireless Network

A Private Wireless Network is a wide area wireless radio telecommunications network developed specifically for the use of public safety, utilities, machine to machine, and business communications.

Its broad area coverage allows for a greater signal range and a lower cost of implementation. Public safety agencies and businesses utilize a Private Wireless Network to send and receive data, communicate, and receive diagnostics
information on their fixed equipment, vehicles and/or employees.

A Private Shared Wireless Network is built to operate on frequencies that are separate from those of public cellular communications networks and other publicly accessible wireless cellular or radio networks so to avoid their associated network congestion and security vulnerabilities.

A radio modem transmits data wirelessly over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint link. Radio modem based data transfer is usually  used in mission-critical applications where reliability and latency of the data transfer are essential to the operation of the system. Radio modem network is independent of mobile and satellite network operators and no cost is associated with data transfer. Private radio modem networks can use either unlicenced (e.g. ISM) or licenced frequency bands (UHF, VHF).

Range up to 100 km

The operation range if a radio network varies depending on the transmission power, antenna gain and mast height and environment. In rural areas a 1 W radio with a line-of-sight radio link may range over 20 km and even up to 50 km in ideal environments. In dense metropolitan areas, a corresponding range may vary from several kilometres to over 10 km. With a 35 W radio modem, a range of up to 100 km can be reached. By using a radio modem as a repeater station, much broader areas can be covered
