Initial order at 160 MHz highlights the opportunity for IEEE 802.16 wireless technology across multiple mission-critical networks for North American Railroads
WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 18, 2023 / Ondas Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:ONDS) ("Ondas" or the "Company"), a leading provider of private wireless, drone and automated data solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. ("Ondas Networks") and American Robotics, Inc. ("American Robotics" or "AR"), announced today that Ondas Networks has received an order for 160 MHz radios from Siemens Mobility on behalf of a major Class 1 Railroad.
This is Ondas Networks' and Siemens Mobility's first order for radios in the North American 160 MHz railroad radio frequency band. Ondas has previously announced a volume order for radios in the nationwide, greenfield 900 MHz network. The 160 MHz radio band offers additional performance characteristics, including greater data capacity and range in challenging geographic environments for new, advanced rail applications, which extend to the furthest reaches of the network.
"This is another step by the North American Rail industry in the adoption of general-purpose IP based networks and the IEEE 802.16 industrial wireless broadband standard," stated Eric Brock, Chairman and CEO of Ondas. "The ability to utilize higher performance data radios operating in the VHF bands unlocks the potential for connectivity in the most challenging environments. We look forward to working with the Class I railroads on new data applications in the dedicated 160 MHz radio band."
