The Freedom LTE-A is a Dual Band MU-MIMO 2.4Ghz + 5Ghz WiFi transceiver with a built-in universal SIM slot for cellular connectivity. The complete unit including all antennas is conveniently housed in an easy to mount dome. The dome comes complete with stainless steel 1-14” female thread mount so it can be used with standard marine mounts (not included). Power and connection are provided by a single 12vdc PoE (Power Over Ethernet) cable for easy installation. When connected to one of Wave’s wireless routers, marine network controllers or access points, the Freedom can provide Internet connectivity for numerous connected devices. The system comes with a user-friendly web-based interface and there is no software to install.
Each component of all Wave WiFi’s products is designed and engineered for the marine environment. All Wave WiFi products support 802.11 b/g/n. However, there are even more powerful products that support 802.11 an/ac frequencies also. These are called Dual Band meaning they operate at both 2.4GHz & 5GHz frequencies. Thereby exhibiting high receive sensitivity and transmitter output power. That means Internet connections are possible up to several miles* from a high powered, access point (HotSpot).
Wave WiFi has also developed cellular products supporting 3G/4G LTE – A technology. These global products can be used both domestically and internationally. These systems are capable of staying connected to shore-based cell towers up to 20 miles* offshore.
