Wireless communication node NN2 EX

NOVA NODE (The nCentric Field Coverage node) has been designed specifically for offshore markets to provide state-of-the-art, reliable and flexible broadband communication between rigs, vessels and onshore personnel. By providing seamless mobility, critical applications like VoIP, video streaming, and data transmission are not interrupted as they move through the network.

Power and flexibility

At the heart of each Nova Node EX is a high-performance network controller, equipped with a high-power radios. The standard radio module operates in the 5GHz ISM band, but the node can also be configured with a 2.4 GHz ISM radio.

Flexible antenna solutions for high range

To provide full coverage without sacrificing range and bandwidth nCentric can deliver a either omnidirectional. Or sectorial antennas with the Nova Node, depending on the specific project needs. Due to the  use of RF barriers no intrinsically safe antennas are required, and any custom type of antenna that might be  beneficial for the project can be safely connected to the node.

Intelligent mesh platform

Powering this high-end hardware platform is an equally exceptional, fully distributed, wireless mesh operating system. Managing all radios so channels are selected as intelligently as possible, Nova Node maximizes throughput, even over multiple hops. Instead of an ordinary ad hoc routing protocol, a mobile-optimized, proactive mesh routing algorithm is employed resulting in a robust, self-configuring, and auto-healing network.

Optional LTE modem

A 4G/LTE modem can be added to the Nove Node to enable high-speed, low latency internet access near shore or in the harbour.
