Codan Radio Communications, a division of Codan Limited (ASX-CDA), has announced the launch of Cyclone, a drop-in replacement platform for existing conventional core radio repeaters and base stations.

Utilizing the extremely rugged MT-4E repeater design and Avtec’s RIC-M technology, the Cyclone is a dependable solution for existing legacy repeaters that rely on proprietary v.24 interface into existing core networks. Leveraging a full P25 DFSI interface (Digital Fixed Station Interface), the Cyclone enables future migration to a P25 standards-based network and backhaul over Ethernet reducing the need for costly leased lines and T1 connections.

“The Cyclone will replace legacy conventional repeaters and base stations with proprietary P25 network connectivity allowing customers to extend the life of their existing core networks. Customers will benefit by saving thousands of dollars per repeater that continue to use proprietary network interfaces,” states Charlie Stuff, Executive General Manager of Codan Radio Communications.

The Cyclone is designed with a 5RU footprint, which fits the exact dimensions of existing legacy stations. Replacement of the legacy stations is as easy as disconnection of the RF, power, and backhaul (v.24) connections, physically removing the legacy product, inserting the Cyclone and reconnecting. With power on, Cyclone will provide the same capability as the legacy product. Cyclone is available in VHF, UHF and 700/800/900 MHz.
