Tracer Microwave Dual  T1 Mastmount

Adtran_Tracer.GIF (31818 bytes)


The ADTRAN Tracer is an unlicensed digital microwave radio that uses spread spectrum technology to provide two, independent T1 communication links. As authorized under part 15.247 of the FCC Rules, Tracer operates in the 2.4 - 2.4835 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band.

The Tracer mast-mounted system is composed of two primary hardware elements; a Baseband Processor (BBP) and a Radio-Frequency Converter (RFC). To minimize transmission line loss at 2.4 GHz, the weatherproof RFC may be mast mounted up to 350 feet from the Baseband Processor, using a single, RG-8 size coax. All signaling and power functions between the Baseband Processor and RFC are provided over this single coax connection.

Tracer transports two T1 digital signals in any framing or line code format and provides two DS1/DSX-1 interfaces. A separate maintenance channel is embedded in the Tracer data stream, providing remote configuration and monitoring functions. The maintenance channel is provided without impacting the T1 capacity.

By using the latest technology and incorporating ADTRAN's ISO 9001 manufacturing processes, ADTRAN has created Tracer to provide the highest levels of reliability and durability. As a result, Tracer is backed by an industry-leading standard 5 year warranty and ADTRAN's outstanding 24-hour technical support.
