BEC Launches MaxRange Gigabit LTE Outdoor Router

BEC Technologies Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of 4G LTE and 5G NR wireless broadband network connectivity solutions, today unveiled a new addition of the RidgeWave series of 4G LTE outdoor routers, the MaxRange 7000 R26. The high-performance solution delivers secure and resilient communication for industrial industries supporting demanding applications in challenging or harsh environments, said the company.

The MaxRange 7000 R26 has achieved tier 1 carrier certification, including FCC Part 96 end-user device authorization for Band 48 OnGo CBRS networks. It is immediately available for oil & gas, utilities, mining, transportation hubs and other industries that require mission-critical network connectivity.

Operators seeking to accelerate and simplify the deployment of new applications and services over public carrier networks or private networks across licensed spectrum assets and CBRS shared spectrum need to look no further than the MaxRange 7000 R26. The solution integrates Gigabit LTE Category 18 capable of 1.2Gbps download and 150 Mbps upload peak data rates, FDD and TDD carrier aggregation up to 5CA DL / 2CA UL, high gain 4X4 MIMO for increased capacity and extended coverage, and 256 QAM for higher throughput.
