Universal pushes high-speed wireless solution

Local networking solutions provider, Universal Network Technologies, is hoping to make waves selling high-speed wireless technology that transmits data at up to 1.25Gbps.

The technology has been employed in two new products from Korean-based vendor, NRDTech.

These transmitted in either the 65GHz or 35GHz radio spectrum, and are known as millimetre wave systems, Universal Network Technologies engineer, Apneet Sodhi, said.

Although the Australian Communications Authority regulates the radio spectrum, the NRDTech products only require a class licence. This means users are free to use them without paying hefty licensing fees.

Because of the frequency, the products do need line of sight in order to transmit data properly.

Sodhi said the 65GHz NVA 100-C60 product could transmit signals up to 800m "under Sydney rainfall" conditions, while the 35GHz NQA 100-B60 could transmit up to 5km.

The speed of data carried across varied from 100Mbps to 1.25Gbps, she said.

The units both took in an Ethernet connection from a network - users simply needed to plug in a cable from their network into the wireless device, Sodhi said.

"It acts like a huge bridge," she said.

On top of the wireless products, Universal Network Technologies' also offers an SHDSL solution -- largely targetted at local councils across the country.

Typically a council would have a head office or chambers but would be surrounded by remote offices such as libraries or depots that also needed to be linked, Sodhi said. The company had already made a sale in a central Victorian shire.

Although largely selling direct, the company uses the help of Lease Underwriting Limited to move and install the products.

The starting price for the 65GHz product is $39,000.
