TropOS 6420 Broadband Mesh Router

The TropOS 6420 broadband outdoor mesh router provides a cost-effective, easy to deploy, high-performance networking solution for outdoor industrial environments.

Lightweight and compact, the TropOS 6420 delivers significant performance increases through support for 2x2 MIMO in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, a next-generation high-sensitivity radio design and the incorporation of patented features of the TropOS Mesh OS.

A cost-effective solution for a wide variety of applications, the TropOS 6420 outdoor mesh router is well-suited for utilities, oil and gas exploration and production, mining, smart cities and industrial process control. With advanced radio resource management and access to 583 MHz of RF spectrum, the TropOS 6420 provides a reliable communications foundation for deploying multiple, concurrent mission critical applications. Each router can either serve as a gateway to increase network capacity or as a node to extend and reinforce network connectivity.

The small, lightweight form factor of this mesh router is ideal for deployments where weight is part of the mounting asset equation. The TropOS 6420 mesh router is a dual-band unit with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz MIMO radios that support meshing and client connectivity in both bands. The TropOS 6420 can be ordered with two Ethernet ports that can be used to inject capacity into the network and attach client devices such as video cameras or with one Ethernet port that can be used to inject capacity into the network plus a serial (RS-232/RS-485) interface.

All TropOS mesh routers support a core set of advanced features that enable them to be used in a wide variety of applications and operate in the same network. Each model of TropOS mesh router also offers hardware and software optimized for specific applications.

 TropOS 6420 mesh routers enable electric utilities to deploy physical security solutions that deter unauthorized access to property, mitigate damage from physical attacks on critical assets, and provide evidence to aid in the apprehension and prosecution of perpetrators. They provide an advanced communication foundation to support security cameras and thermal imaging/night vision cameras that provide visibility within and outside the substation. A network built from TropOS 6420 mesh routers can also concurrently operate multiple security applications including gunshot location sensors, door alarms, keypads and biometrics for access control, motion detectors and intrusion sensors. Because a TropOS 6420-based network can support multiple applications at the same time, utility security personnel can quickly consult multiple systems, for example, by using streaming or captured video to confirm what triggered a substation motion sensor and allowing them to dispatch the correct personnel, e.g., security, maintenance and/or fire/EMS.
