Radio Modules

Flexible Configuration
& Spectrum Diversity

The MPU5 and Embedded Module are both built on Persistent’s Interchangeable Frequency Architecture. Both products are compatible with all of Persistent’s Interchangeable Frequency Modules. This design allows you to adapt and select an operational band best suited to your environment and application without replacing your entire radio inventory or redesigning your embedded radio integration. Additionally, as global spectrum regulations continue to evolve, the Interchangeable Frequency Module protects your investment or design from obsolescence; the module can be quickly and easily changed to ensure compliance.

L-Band

Persistent’s L-Band Interchangeable Frequency Modules were designed for use by Military (1350 – 1390 MHz) and Overseas customers. The longer wavelength of the L-Band frequency (compared to S-Band) allows the MPU5 to reach further distances with omnidirectional antennas, which is ideal for aviation applications.

S-Band

Persistent’s S-Band Interchangeable Frequency Modules are ideal for use by Federal (2200 – 2290 MHz) and Commercial customers in both Licensed (2300 – 2400 MHz) and ISM (2412 – 2462 MHz) frequency ranges. Additionally, the S-Band module has an FCC Part 15 Certification. This module is ideal for cities, where users can take advantage of the S-Band wavelength for superior RF reflections and penetration in urban environments.
