4RF unveils a new radio product

Today 4RF launches Aprisa SR, a point to multi-point radio product we've been working on for the last couple of years. Here's the press release from 4rf.com:

4RF Communications launches the Aprisa SR multipoint radio for future-proof, security-enhanced, Smart SCADA networks
We have unveiled our new product, the Aprisa SR Smart SCADA multipoint radio, at the European Utilities Telecom Council annual conference.
Used by oil, gas, and utility companies for a wide range of monitoring and control applications, the Aprisa SR is a point-to-multipoint Smart SCADA radio operating in the 400-470 MHz licensed spectrum band, with a 12.5 kHz channel size and narrowband 9.6 kbps capacity. The Aprisa SR has been designed to address the key concerns facing the industry: the need for enhanced security, the need to efficiently handle the increasing complexity of SCADA networks, and the evolution to an IP-based and smart grid infrastructure.

  1. Hello. Is it true that the AprisaSR is your brainchild?

  2. Hi anonymous, it's the brainchild of a lot of people here in Wellington

  3. Does the 9.6kbps baud rate mean you only cater to low capacity data? What if SCADA requirements dictate a GUI-based application? How will your offered system serve its purpose?

  4. Hi Anonymous,

    this class of products is targeted to widespread low-rate SCADA systems.
    Typically a GUI based management application for SCADA is not served over the air but rather by a local system that regularly polls small amounts of data from remote sensors.
    Hope that helps...

  5. I have a look on your web page:
    ... Additional options will include operation at 136 – 174 MHz ... with 6.25 kHz and 25 kHz channel options.
    Is it really ready to ship now?
