NavCom Unveils the New Safari Network™ SR-7100 Mark II at COMNET Expo

Redondo Beach, CA., December 26, 2002 – NavCom Technology, Inc. announced today that it will be demonstrating its new mobile wireless broadband network radio, the Safari Network SR-7100 Mark II, at the 2003 COMNET Expo on January 28th through 30th in Washington, D.C.


“NavCom's Safari Network radio is the world's first multi-protocol broadband wireless communications networking product capable of integrating both fixed and mobile communications requirements into one seamless network,” says NavCom’s Director of Wireless Communication Products Jalal Alisobhani. “Its unique multi-port design supports serial and Ethernet data transfers concurrently, vastly improving networking flexibility.”


Unlike local area wireless communications systems such as 802.11b, the Safari Network SR-7100 Mark II transmits high-speed data traffic to vehicles over a wide area using only the license-free 2.4 GHz band and wireless repeater cells. This makes it a much more cost-efficient system and allows for full-duplex Ethernet service and serial data service at all mobile access points as well as at fixed repeater sites. NavCom’s patented direct sequence spread spectrum transmission technology enables it to securely support multiple, simultaneous applications using different communication protocols.


These distinctive features make the Safari Network SR-7100 Mark II the optimal private wireless communications solution for systems integrators wanting to expand their customers’ networks to the mobile environment. Popular applications include Automatic Vehicle Location, Machine Control, Municipality and Public Safety operations, Video Surveillance, Remote LAN Access and Military communications applications.


The COMNET Conference & Expo, produced by IDG World Expo, is the catalyst for buyers and sellers in the communication networking industry to connect with new technologies and meet the experts driving the industry to a prosperous future.
