RICHARDSON, Texas, March 17, 2020 — BEC Technologies Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of 4G LTE and 5G wireless broadband solutions, announced today the launch of its latest addition to the RidgeWave® Series of 4G LTE outdoor routers. The RidgeWave® BEC 4900 Series is immediately available for network operators to cost-effectively provide high-speed Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) to homes and businesses in suburban and rural locations.
The new series of routers support commercially licensed LTE bands and are FCC Part 96 EUD authorized for use on 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) shared spectrum Band 48. Operators can select from LTE Category 6 or LTE-Advanced Pro Category 12 models that offer carrier aggregation up to 3 CA downlink & 2CA uplink. Embedded high gain 12dBi 4×4 MIMO dual-polarized/dual slant antenna technology ensures faster and efficient bi-directional transmission for maximum bandwidth and coverage. The RidgeWave® BEC 4900 Series is optimized to work in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) conditions, where either visual line-of-sight or Fresnel zone clearance is obstructed (or both) where desirable signal strength is difficult to achieve.
“Operators have grown accustomed to our proven performance, product reliability, and durability, even in the most demanding environments; the RidgeWave® BEC 4900 Series is no exception,” said D’Andre Ladson, VP of Marketing. Unique to BEC devices are GORE® vents for pressure equalization, humidity, and airflow, preventing seal failures and component exposure. Accompanied by lighting/ESD protection and the IP68/UL 50E enclosure ensure protection against dirt, harmful ingress of water, humidity, and extreme temperatures for years of dependable operation.
Features and Benefits of the 4900 Series:
- BEC Dual-Pol Dual-Slant adaptive antenna technology
- LTE Advanced Pro CAT 12 with support for global LTE FDD and TDD bands
- Flexible network modes: bridge, router, advanced networking, and VPN
