Overview

WAVE RELAY® Radio Modules

The MPU5 and Embedded Module are both built on Persistent’s Interchangeable Frequency Architecture. Both products are compatible with all Persistent’s Interchangeable Frequency Modules.

This design allows you to adapt and select an operational band best suited to your environment and application without replacing your entire radio inventory or redesigning your embedded radio integration.

Additionally, as global spectrum regulations continue to evolve, the Interchangeable Frequency Module protects your investment or design from obsolescence; the module can be quickly and easily changed to ensure compliance.

L-BAND MODULE

The Wave Relay® L-Band Interchangeable Frequency Module is designed for use by Military (1350 – 1390 MHz) and Overseas personnel.
 
The longer wavelength of the L-Band frequency allows the MPU5 to reach further distances with omnidirectional antennas, making it ideal for aviation applications.
