CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Exalt Communications, the company that is reinventing microwave backhaul, today announced that it has expanded its breakthrough ExtendAir product line with the ExtendAir r4900 Series, a new line of all-outdoor microwave backhaul systems for the licensed 4.9 GHz public safety frequency. With prices starting at under $7,000 per link, ExtendAir r4900 Series systems slash deployment costs for public agencies requiring highly secure, mission-critical microwave links that deliver a class-leading 160 Mbps Ethernet plus optional native 4xT1/E1 traffic capabilities. These newest systems join the Exalt public safety product portfolio that also includes all-indoor systems configured for the licensed 4.9 GHz public safety frequency band, and all-outdoor systems configured for the 4.5 GHz government and NATO band.

"Exalt 4.9 GHz radio systems have given us rock-solid reliability for our emergency communications network," said Chris Kindelspire, electronics manager for Grundy County, Illinois Emergency Telephone System Board. "The ExtendAir r4900 Series products will give us new, lower-cost options for expanding our system when needed in the future."

ExtendAir r4900 Series radio systems are compact, rugged, all-outdoor units operating in the licensed 4.9 GHz band providing mission-critical reliability over distances of up to 30 miles. These systems incorporate FIPS 197-compliant 128- and 256-bit AES encryption for ironclad traffic security with secure SNMP v3 management. The ExtendAir r4900 Series systems also offer throughput symmetry control that allows public safety agencies to dedicate up to 80 percent of total aggregate traffic in either the upstream or downstream direction to better support highly asymmetrical applications such as video surveillance or remote dispatch including P25 backhaul. Moreover, like all Exalt microwave backhaul systems, ExtendAir r4900 Series systems support native T1/E1 traffic as needed, and they can optionally be configured with three 10/100BaseT ports to further reduce costs by eliminating the need for a separate Ethernet switch.

"We recognize that nowhere is the need for high performance, reliability and security more critical than in public safety deployments supporting the work of law enforcement agencies and other first-responders," said Amir Zoufonoun, president and CEO of Exalt Communications. "Our ExtendAir systems not only provide these capabilities, but are priced to meet the requirements of even the most budget-constrained departments. Recognizing the challenges we face in today's world, we consider the public safety market one of our most important, and we will continue to deliver products that help agencies successfully carry out their missions."
