Rochester, NY— To provide increased reliability and redundancy, Microwave Data Systems (MDS) has introduced the newest solution in its packaged product portfolio. MDS P-21, equipped with MDS iNET 900 radios, is a protected network station that provides redundant service for mission-critical applications where uninterrupted service is required. The complete unit is designed to hold two MDS iNETs, two power supplies, and a switchover logic board that automatically switches from one MDS iNET to the other in the event of a power failure.
MDS manufactures industrial, wireless, networking solutions with applications in the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), automation, public safety, telecommunications, and online transactional markets.
Besides its redundancy capabilities, MDS P-21 includes all the benefits of the MDS iNET. This license-free solution provides high-speed data throughput of 512 Kbps and long-range coverage, which makes it ideal for SCADA systems in electric utilities, oil and gas production and distribution, and other mission-critical communications. And, because it’s Ethernet and serial capable, it is reportedly the ideal solution for bringing serial data onto IP networks and assists in preserving legacy equipment and providing a bridge to new Ethernet equipment.
