MDS x790 Series Master Station 4790, 9790 & SDA

The redundant, full-duplex MDS x790 Series Master Stations are the price and performance leader of licensed microwave radios in the 330-512 MHz and 800-960 MHz frequency range. It gives increased throughput and longer range alternatives for our customers’ Multiple Address Systems needs. Transparent and direct asynchronous communications offer real-time communication. No extra software or programming is needed to implement communications that use standard asynchronous protocols. The addition of the SD Adapter enables IP/Ethernet communications and AES 128-bit encryption to a system based on the MDS SD Series radio.

The MDS x790 Series Master Station may operate as a full-duplex, half-duplex or simplex radio and is configurable as a redundant master station, a redundant repeater or a remote radio. The MDS 4790 and MDS 4710 or the MDS 9790 and MDS 9710 remote transceivers together offer a new level of ease of integration, reliability and performance for our customers’ data network systems.

Manufacturing has discontinued as of December, 2016.
