SOLON, Ohio, 8 Dec. 2015. Bird Technologies is introducing the 614 series digital RF signal boosters for stadiums, airports, office buildings, hospitals, tunnels, and any place lacking adequate signal coverage.

The RF and microwave signal boosters are designed to increase the signal strength of land-mobile and public safety communications systems operating at either 450 to 470 MHz or 470 MHz to 488 MHz.

The configurable system combines programmable digital RF filters, the cryptographic and other security benefits of the SNMPv3 control protocol, browser-based configuration and management, and the ability to view changes to filter characteristics while viewing their effects in real-time.

The rugged 614 series signal boosters are housed in NEMA 4 type enclosures, and are certified to meet FCC and Industry Canada certifications as either Class A or Class B boosters depending on their configuration.

The 614 series also provides as many as 28 programmable RF filters each for the uplink and downlink paths and enables the user to configure his center frequency, bandwidths from 6.25 kHz to 1.5 MHz, and other characteristics in real-time. Custom filter shapes also can be created.

The system also enables the user to view relevant area of RF spectrum including interfering signals, while simultaneously overlaying filter characteristics and their effects. Control and configurability are orchestrated with any computer on an Ethernet network or virtually anywhere that Web access is available.

The highest level of control security is provided by the latest SNMP protocol (Version 3), which includes DES encryption and authentication, and other features include pilot signal injection that enables quick assessment of system performance, and the ability to detect and mitigate signal oscillation conditions.

The 614 series has an RF output of +32 dBm in high power mode and +22 dBm in low-power mode with a maximum RF input power up to -20 dBm, gain of up to 95 dB, operates over a temperature range of --30 to 60 degrees Celsius, measures 30 by 20 by 10 inches, weighs 95 pounds, and operates from either 24-volt DC or 90-to-240-volt AC supplies. Custom models are available on request.
