Codan Radio Communications has launched the Stratus Fixed Site, a stationary P25 repeater offering LTE/3G cellular backhaul capabilities.

The device provides rugged and reliable communication solutions for public safety agencies with fixed P25 base stations and/or repeaters. With the LTE/3G capability, the product allows organisations to use publicly available LTE/3G cellular networks for backhaul of their P25 radio traffic into dispatch, replacing the need for costly leased lines and T1 connections. A key feature includes an upgrade path to 4G LTE backhaul interface (with fallback to 3G).

The product can be integrated into existing Codan infrastructure and has the capacity to connect up to four Codan base stations and/or repeaters over a single cellular link. It is also interoperable with all P25-compliant subscribers and consoles, utilising existing P25 equipment for operational and cost efficiency.
