Doodle Labs Introduces NTIA Compliant 4.4 GHz NATO Broadband Transceivers

Doodle Labs has launched a series of embedded transceivers that have been designed to be fully compliant with the NTIA’s channel plans for worldwide deployments. This compliance provides System Integrators with a streamlined path to offer modems and routers for various Military and Public Safety related applications.

The 4.4 GHz band, also known as C-Band, is a licensed band dedicated for US and NATO military that offers several advantages. Since the band is restricted to military use, it provides an additional level of security and is less crowded than the unlicensed spectrum.

The US Federal 4 GHz spectrum spans 4.4 GHz to 4.94 GHz. This spectrum is designated for the U.S. military fixed and mobile communications. There are also peacetime training and test networks deployed in this frequency range. Additionally, this band is used widely by NATO countries in Europe for military communications networks. Typical uses include point-to-point data links, drone vehicle control, telemetry and mesh networking.

Doodle Labs’ embedded 4.4 GHz NATO Broadband transceivers have been designed to provide the best-in-class performance, particularly for addressing challenging applications. The transceivers feature high RF power and great Rx sensitivity to provide high throughput over long ranges. They support an extended temperature range, more than 20 KV antenna protection, and vibration resiliency for outdoor/rugged environments.

Doodle Labs is extremely focused on the quality of its products. Each transceiver is individually tested and calibrated to eliminate field performance variations. They have used components only from Tier-1 suppliers and state-of-the-art manufacturing machines to maintain the high quality and reliability.
