Wave Relay® is a Mobile Ad Hoc Networking System (MANET)designed to maintain connectivity on the move. It is a scalable,peer-to-peer network which provides data, video, and voice even inthe most challenging applications. With user throughput of 41MbpsUDP and 31.1 Mbps TCP, Wave Relay® provides a dynamic, reliable,and secure wireless networking solution beyond mesh.
The MPU4 brings the Wave Relay® Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)capability directly to the dismounted user. Seamless Layer-2 Ethernetconnectivity facilitates plug-and-play operation of cameras, video encoders, IP sensors, and other devices. In addition, the MPU4 is thesmallest, lightest and most portable wireless MANET solution from the Wave Relay® product family. The MPU4 is compatible with 3-pintwist lock batteries providing up to 14 hours of run-time. The MPU4 connects to Android™ phones and tablets through a high speed secure cable which also powers the device from the standardized battery.
