Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) is introducing a new high-speed broadband, line-of-sight network radio supporting transfer throughput rate in excess of 70 Mbps. The new system dubbed RF- 300W is designed to transfer internet protocol communications from point to point, over distances of up to 50 kilometers, under clear line-of-sight conditions. A lightweight and compact system, the radio provides ireless data communications at fixed sites as well as at-the-halt configurations. The radio can also support 'point-to-multipoint' connectivity.

Transmissions can be secured via embedded 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption, or through the use of an external Ethernet Inline Network Encryption (INE) device. The system weighs less than 5 pounds (2.3 kilograms), offering an attractive and easily deployable alternative to traditional microwave radio links. RF-300W operates in NATO Band IV (4.4 to 5.0 GHz). The new radio will be available for shipment in the fourth quarter of 2007.
