With broadcast and cinema technologies gradually shifting towards IP-based transport, the industry has seen huge spikes in demand for more reliable deployment systems in Internet and 4G/LTE infrastructure.
And while current technology does is better than ever at getting content over the Internet, every professional knows that connections are never rock-solid. When a broadcast is mission critical, you can’t afford to lose connection.
That’s where our newest Link Pro comes in.
What Is It?
Link Pro is a dual-band WiFi router that can bond up to 4x Teradek Node modems (3G/4G/LTE) and 2x additional USB modems for maximum portability & redundancy. It features both 2.4GHz & 5GHz spectrums, and has a 1,000 ft. max range.
*A subscription to Teradek’s Core platform is required for bonding.
What Are Teradek Nodes?
Nodes are high-powered 3G/4G/LTE modems that provide 2 to 3 times the performance of carrier-branded modems. Used by broadcasters to get cellular signal in locations where normal devices like phones or USB modems wouldn't.
What Does It Do?
Link Pro combines every modem’s cellular network into a single, robust Internet connection and allows devices to connect to it for WiFi. By bonding several connections into one, the Link Pro eliminates any single point of failure, with multiple connections to provide a backup in case one network drops.
This allows for mission critical broadcasts to receive signal in the most demanding of cellular RF conditions, like 4G congested areas or remote locations cell signals are scarce.
- Standalone Unit
Featuring a super rugged aluminum chassis, the standalone is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications. Perfect for supplying your own modems and mounting solutions.
The Link Pro Backpack contains the router and 4x Nodes to give you Internet wherever you go. The backpack is designed to maximize space and airflow to keep your units running smoothly all day.
For industrial and emergency applications, the radome is a Link Pro/Node housing unit installed on vehicles (EMS, law enforcement, industrial trucks, etc.). This design protects it from the harshest of elements while providing a constant Internet connection to devices near the router.
Who Is It For?
It’s not enough to rely on a single Internet connection for deploying video over IP, whether that’s live streaming or point-to-point transport. In situations where a single connection isn’t enough, the Link Pro ensures that you have maximum bandwidth to deliver your video to its destination via IP.
Link Pro is built to endure constant use in rough environments, and allows users to transmit crucial information over the Internet wherever they are. Its powerful range makes it more versatile for applications that require mobility.
EMS vehicles rely on the Internet to transfer life-saving info to medical professionals before arriving at the destination. The Link Pro will ensure emergency services have the necessary bandwidth to get the job done.
