EMClarity supplies Spread Networks

Brisbane microwave engineering company EMClarity – a subsidiary of EM Solutions – is partnering with CSIRO, Australia’s national science and technology agency and the inventor of WiFi, to engineer the production version of the E10G radio – the world’s lowest-latency (Layer 2) 5Gbit/second E-band (70 to 80 GHz) microwave radio. 

EMClarity CEO Richard Harris said, “CSIRO needed an Australian microwave engineering partner who had a track record of delivering robust, reliable products for field operation in harsh environments. EM Solutions and EMClarity have an unparalleled track record in this regard, and also contributed missing pieces of the E10G engineering puzzle.”

A new radio system was designed and built using CSIRO’s patented innovations in E-band radio-frequency technology and modem software, along with EM Solutions and EMClarity innovations in antenna pointing, tracking technology and radio electronics. Field trials in January 2014 proved that the prototype would deliver as promised, reliably carrying 5 Gbit/s over 15-km distance with ultra-low latency. Spread Networks have ordered a quantity of the production E10G-ULL radios to support a high-capacity, ultra-low latency data network in the USA.

To support the work required to successfully commercialise the E10G radio, EM Solutions have obtained a grant from Commercialisation Australia to help fund the engineering, marketing and other work required.
