© 2011 Tropos Networks, Inc. | Page 13 Cognitive Radio Techniques for High Reliability Mesh architecture: inherently capable of routing around interference through leveraging path diversity Multi-band radio technologies can efficiently and adaptively exploit multiple frequency bands, with failover and load- balancing between them (e.g., dual-mode 2.4/5 GHz) Dynamic frequency selection: ability to detect interference or elevated noise levels and dynamically switch channels Transmit power control and adaptive modulation: techniques for adapting radio transmission parameters in real-time to maintain link reliability
© 2011 Tropos Networks, Inc. | Page 14 Private Network Architectures: Mesh and PTMP PTMP Advantages Mesh Advantages Large coverage areaResilient high-availability architecture Compelling economics for sparse areas Ideal solution for NLOS environments, dense urban areas Easy to deploy High system capacity PTMP ChallengesMesh Challenges LOS is challenging in urban areasRequires pole-top mounting assets Expensive site acquisition, constructionEconomics for sparsely-populated areas Hub-and-spoke architecture with single point of failure Management of many distributed assets
© 2011 Tropos Networks, Inc. | Page 15 PTMP and Mesh are Complementary PTMP and Mesh are complementary technologies for the DAN layer –PTMP is very cost-effective rural deployments –PTMP is suitable for mesh capacity injection in denser areas, especially where there isn’t utility-owned fiber –Mesh is well-suited for urban/suburban areas providing resilience and higher capacity Optimal combination of Mesh and PTMP leverages the strengths of both –Mesh extends coverage range of PTMP and improves reliability –Architectural resilience through mesh failover capabilities –Unification of mesh and PTMP components through Tropos Control –Combined deployment achieves Economics optimized for mix of urban/suburban/rural areas Meets requirements for multiple DAN applications
