Executive Comment

“Advantech Wireless was the first company to manufacture native Ethernet radios, and also the first company to implement a LDPC error-correction mechanism in our split-mount microwave radio in the early 2000’s. Since then, we have improved the design of the Transcend™ 800 system,” said Bojan Skulic, Terrestrial Microwave Communications Manager at Advantech Wireless. “Advantech Wireless Transcend™ 800 has the best system gain on the microwave radio market. Our customers can save on their investment and running costs by allowing for smaller antennas, longer connections and higher connection availability.”
