Castle Rock Microwave designs ultra-high speed, carrier-class PTP solutions, purpose-built for SDN and IP/MPLS networks. Encryption and interference-reduction technologies enable us to create streamlined, cost-effective solutions, and we build scalability into each system to accommodate future technologies and organizational growth. With many deployment scenarios, including electric co-ops, rural telcos, public safety and ISP users, we can provide the correct solution for your specific needs including capacity upgrades for broadband, substation connectivity, LMR backhaul and dispatch center connectivity.
Point-to-multipoint wireless networks may utilize one or more technologies, including Terragraph, CBRS, Private LTE, and IoT. Recent advances in massive multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology have increased capacity and expanded the range of applications to include wireless internet service providers (WISPs), rural telcos, utilities, transportation entities, and traffic management agencies. Use cases for point-to-multipoint wireless bridges include rural broadband distribution, SCADA backhaul, and video backhaul.
Mesh networks are self-healing multi-point to multi-point wireless network solutions. Using a combination of wireless network nodes and networking software, our mesh networks employ any-node to any-node capabilities to continuously and instantaneously route data via the most efficient path and frequency. Wireless nodes can communicate with any ethernet-connected device to deliver low-latency, high-throughput data, voice and video applications across an entire network and provide:
Castle Rock Microwave deploys 2.5 GHz private LTE for tribal broadband solutions and 3.5 GHz/Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) for commercial broadband solutions. Private LTE networks are often the best wide-area option across a wide variety of applications:
Compared to lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries, supercapacitors are extremely reliable, operate at near 100% efficiency, reduce cost, and are environmentally friendly. Applications include off-grid communication, solar farm storage, time of use (TOU) arbitrage, automobile charging stations, DC plant battery backup, and railroad switches.
Broadband WLAN networks enable critical infrastructure assets such as water plants, airport and electrical substations to video-monitor perimeters and facilities. Coupled with IoT, our video networks can support facial recognition, provide perimeter detection, read license plates and airplane tail numbers, and trigger alarms when threats are detected.
For in-vehicle connectivity, Castle Rock Microwave partners with Cambium Networks, Rajant, and Cradlepoint for PMP, private LTE, and wireless bridge routers to power wireless applications such as crime scene reporting, mobile CAD, field service, and workforce automation for police and fire departments, railroads, utilities and public safety agencies.
In the wake of the 9/11 attack, the National Fire Protection Association mandated that large buildings ensure radio coverage for first responders. From this mandate, the Emergency Responder Radio Coverage System (ECCRS) was born. ECCRS use DAS and BDA to maintain communications within high-mass structures such as:
When building out a wireless network there are times when you need additional networking components to meet your unique end-point security needs. Security is critical for every wireless system. CRM has partnered with best-of-breed companies Juniper Networks, Fortinet and Cambium Networks for switches, routers, and firewalls.
