Wireless Tube Housing is a necessary component for keeping an eye on your remote installations, and also to keep your transmission secure. Normally, such housing uses FHSS technology. FHSS means Frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology. As the name implies, while transmitting data, the systems hops frequency in a definite sequence which can be de-codified by the receiver to make a meaning of the data streamed. As per definition, FHSS is a method of transmitting a radio signal by rapidly switching the carrier wave in many frequency channels. The nature of switching is random, rather pseudorandom, and the sequence is known to the transmitter and the receiver (the system of coding and decoding is not that simple and there are lots of tricks). This saves the data from interference (from background noise) and untoward eavesdropping (hacking). However, it is not a completely watertight security; a simple algorithm can discover the sequence and your armor get cracked and vulnerable, so for all sensitive installations another layer of security is deployed to eliminate the possibility of data jamming (a necessary evil of electronic war game). All such wireless tube housing gadgets come in with:
- 900 MHz wireless Tube Housing
- 2.4 GHz Wireless Tube Housing
Now your choice of bandwidth will depend upon the topography of the region. Because almost everywhere in the world there are rules that limits the radio frequency power transmission. The rules are different for different bands (900 MHz & 2.4 GHz). It is common knowledge that if a cable (RF cable) is used to connect the antenna with the radio, it will draw lower power. The loss of signal strength will be low and the receivers’ sensitivity will increase. Now, the 900 MHz will provide you a better width (antenna width) and will also have the ability to overcome little barriers like a short brick structure, foliage etc. The 2.4 GHz band will provide you better signal quality but will need almost an eye to eye contact with the receiver. So the choice is mostly dependent upon your installation site.
Now-a-days, you can get online help from the manufacturers. And there are people who can guide you and start working with your site once you confirm your selection and placement of order. So your solution is only a few clicks away. Just try it out and see how easy it is!
